The Kenya Institute Of Curriculum Development (KICD) is Kenya’s curriculum development hub. They develop syllabuses and approve the curricula for practically everything that’s taught in Kenya (except Universities). It is the immediate successor of the Kenya Institute of Education which was established in 1968 by Education Act, Cap 211 of the laws of Kenya.

The key mission of KICD is to provide research-based curricula and curriculum support materials responsive to the needs of the society.KICD is guided by the following core values; Professionalism, Teamwork, Integrity, Innovation and Creativity, Ubuntu-humane and Trust.

The latest report indicates that KICD has announced the subjects that will be done by the Learners joining Junior secondary schools in January. According to KICD, the learners in grade seven will be pursuing 14 subjects out of which 12 subjects will be compulsory.

The 14 subjects to be undertaken by grade seven learners include English, Kiswahili, mathematics, integrated science, health education, pre-technical and pre-career, social studies, religious education, business studies, agriculture, life skills education, physical education/sports, and foreign languages.

According to KICD, "This will equip the learner with foundational knowledge, that is a prerequisite to specialise in subjects such as metalwork, woodwork, electricity, aviation technology, building construction, power mechanics, leatherwork, culinary arts, hairdressing and beauty therapy, marine and fisheries, manufacturing and media technology at senior school,” the curriculum design reads.
