RE: CAPTURE OF LEARNERS IN NATIONAL EDUCATION MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM (NEMIS)
The Ministry of Education has made a decision to the effect that NEMIS shall be the singular source of truth in Education data.
It has been noted that private schools have largely neglected the use of NEMIS for admission of learners. This has made it difficult for the Ministry to validate data from private schools in decision making.
Going forward, the Kenya National Examination Council will use NEMIS to get learners’ information for the purpose of examinations registration. It is therefore in the interest of your members to begin capturing learners’ information in NEMIS.
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that all admissions/transfer of learners from 1 January, 2023 will have to be captured in NEMIS.
