In line with its mandate stipulated in the Guidelines for Implementation of Junior Secondary Education, the Centre for Mathematics Science and Technology Education in Africa (CEMASTEA) is rolling out the training on Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) for Junior Secondary School (JSS) teachers.
The county level training of JSS teachers will be conducted for 5 days in two batches as follows:
- Batch 1: Monday 23rd to Friday 28th April 2023

However, the counties of (1) Garissa (2) Isiolo (3) Lamu (4) Marsabit (5) Mombasa (6) Samburu (7) Tana River which have 200 JSS teachers or less, will conduct the training in one batch on Monday 23rd to Friday 28th April 2023.

(5) Pay each participant a return transport allowance as per the approved budget for JSS training.
(6) Incur all other expenses necessary for the effective implementation of the training in line with the 2023 Approved Budget for the County.
