It is always the role of the teachers to implement the curriculum through teaching the students in schools.Incase they mess up,then the future of the students can be oblique.This means that the teachers must always get sufficient trainings whenever changes are there. The Government has always trained teachers to acquint themselves with the changes.Every holiday,teachers get trained in the new CBC curriculum.The latest Remote Learning Methodologies trainings came in handy for teachers with knowledge in Information Technology.
Few months ago, the Teachers Service Commission accredited four institutions to provide Teacher Professional Development (TPD) program to registered Teachers in Public and Private Primary and Secondary Schools, Trainers in tertiary institutions as well as Instructional Leaders in the public and private institutions.

There are several teachers across the country who are desperately looking for the TSC jobs.In the current applications that the teachers have done,some schools have attracted as much as 100 applicants in just one chance.This shows how desperate these teachers are. At the moment,the jobless teachers have been dissapointed by the move by TSC to extend the contracts of the Headteachers by two more years yet they also need jobs.This extension has also surprisingly come at a time when some 15,000 administrators who were interviewed in February have not got their letters for promotions.The new plan by TSC to subject all the teachers to refresher courses has come as a surprise to the teachers.The TPD modules will see the teachers go for trainings during the holidays in Mount Kenya University,Kenyatta University,Riara University and KEMI.The teachers will be required to undertake 5 modules with different sections at intervals.
