According to Education CS George Magoha, who exuded confidence that the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) won’t be abandoned by the next administration, training for Grade Nine teachers in the CBC will start in January 2019.
According to Prof. Magoha, the building of the 11,600 new classrooms needed to house junior secondary students is 90% complete and teachers for grades 7 and 8 have received training.
According to Prof. Magoha in Eldoret, “We have already trained instructors who will teach in junior secondary schools, while the next administration will train Grade Nine teachers in January to stimulate the implementation of CBC.”
During the inspection of junior secondary schools yesterday at Moi Girls High School in Eldoret, he gave a speech.
The training for Grade Nine teachers is aimed at approximately 116,024 secondary school teachers.
60,000 instructors were trained in the previous term. According to Prof. Magoha, more teachers will receive training this term and next.
The next administration will complete the mission once more than 10 million youngsters have registered in the curriculum, the CS claims, and instructors have been trained to implement CBC.
“The next regime can’t think of abolishing CBC,” said Prof. Magoha. “The current government has invested a lot of resources in it and with more than 10 million children having been enrolled.”
He allayed concerns that boarding schools.
Prof. Magoha claims that money invested in creating the curriculum will have been wasted if CBC is canceled.
Prof. Magoha stated that more than 90% of the classrooms are finished and ready for students to transfer to junior secondary schools.
Before the start of the transition phase in January of the next year, he voiced the hope that every classroom would be ready.
Prof. Magoha stated, “I have just witnessed the commissioning of two wonderful CBC classrooms here at Moi Girls. The bulk of schools are at 90% of the way through building CBC classrooms, however in Central Kenya, nearly 100% of the classes have been built.
He urged the contractors to complete the remaining classes as soon as possible and by the deadline.
Claims that some students transitioning to junior secondary schools were not given the option to attend schools outside of their counties were refuted by the CS.
Children are free to attend whichever school they desire, particularly those aspiring to top national universities, according to Prof. Magoha.
However, he urged students to think about attending a school close to where they lived in order to be near their parents.
The CS continued, “The CBC is guiding students away from exam-focused learning and preparing them with abilities that will enable them to tackle varied obstacles in life.
In 2017 the 2-6-3-3 educational system, which would replace 8-4-4, was introduced.
