Good News to All Kenyans Holding TVET Diplomas as Ruto's Plans to Make them JSS Teachers Leaks

All Kenyans holding Diplomas from Technical and Vocational Educational and Training institutions might be headed for good times as details emerge on how president William Ruto intends to make them Junior Secondary Schools teachers.

During a closed door meeting with the president, the presidential working party on educational reforms is said to have proposed before William Ruto that some related subjects in JSS be merged and taught together since there was an overlap in some learning areas.

Though he instructed the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development ( KICD ) to recognize the learning areas to reduce the workload on students, the president opposed proposals to drop / merge the pre-tech subjects in JSS since it lays the basis of TVET.

Since there are inadequate teachers to take up the Pre-tech subjects, president William Ruto has proposed that TVET Diploma holders be hired to teach the subjects.

The pre-tech subjects include; woodwork, metalworks, technical drawing, electricity, electronics, home management, shorthand, auto-mechanics, textile and clothing and accounting.

The proposal is on the basis that TVET Diploma holders are already experts in nearly all of the subjects and will be ideal teachers to take up the Pre-tech subjects in Junior Secondary Schools.
