CP2 registration, Knec issues deadline amid complaints

CP2 registration, Knec issues deadline amid complaints

The Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) has issued warning to teachers who are yet to create and update their CP2 details.

Knec says it will close the exercise by today and that teachers who were vetted for the upcoming exams and assessments should have their CP2 profiles details done.

Failure to create and update CP2 details means teachers will miss their payments. Knec pays teachers after the exams have officially been released.

Some teachers are still complaining that they cannot access their CP2 accounts due to password issues. Some say the passwords are sent to emails and phone numbers which no longer exists.

Knec however says those with serious problems in accessing or creating their CP2 accounts should see their Sub County Directors for assistance.
