The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has stepped up training on the new curriculum despite opposition by the Kenya National union of Teachers (Knut).
The competency-based curriculum (CBC) has been rolled out for nursery schools and Grade 1 to 3 while the Grade 4 programme has been set for 2020.
Amid Knut’s opposition to the training, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has assured Kenyans that the rollout will continue.
To support the CBC’s implementation, the commission is training 1,365 more officers across the country.
Prof Magoha is set to preside over the exercise in Murang’a County on Monday.
So far, 100 master trainers have been taken through the CBC and and the National Education Management Information System (Nemis) at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).
In March, 91,320 teachers were trained across the country for four days.
The TSC says the target population is made up of county and sub-county directors of education, quality assurance and standards officers, projects coordinators and its county and sub county directors.
Those trained will be required to supervise, monitor and assesses implementation of the CBC, advise on interventions necessary for the process, create awareness the CBC and the competency-based assessment (CBA), and on how to effectively use Nemis to monitor all of the ministry’s programmes.
