The competency based Curriculum has brought numerous changes in the education system, with many parents stating that the system is expensive.
And now, the system is set to also be abit expensive for teachers.
According to a report by the Nation, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) rolled out the Teachers professional Development programme.
In addition, TSC signed contracts with four universities that will train teachers every 5 years so that they can be recertified. The 4 universities are; Kenyatta University, Mount Kenya University, Riara and Kenya Education Management Institute.
The training programmes after 5 years will be reffered to as modules and teachers will be required to renew their teaching licences after being trained.
The programme will run for 30 years and teachers will be paying 6,000 Kenyan shillings for every module.
The programme is aimed at making the CBC more effective and ensuring that all teachers are kept up to date with the changes in the academic world as they do research projects.
