TSC PROVIDES ALL TSC TEACHERS WITH COMPULSORY CBC SCHEDULE TRAINING.
CBC training cohort for 2024. To assist them in adjusting to the changes made to the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), all teachers who are members of the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will be required to take part in a one-year mandatory school-based training program starting in April 2024.
It’s unclear though if this training would be funded by the government or the instructors themselves.
The recommendations of the Education Reforms Taskforce, which emphasized the significance of retraining teachers in light of curricular changes, have already been carried out by Ruto.
The committee recommended that the Ministry of Education create policies mandating that all instructors who received their degrees prior to 2023 complete this one-year program of retooling and upgrading to keep up with curricular changes.
The taskforce’s coordinator, Professor Raphael Munavu, urged for the adoption of extensive Faculty Staff programs to get ready for competency-based teacher preparation.
The task committee also suggested that applicants to pre-service teacher education programs earn at least a C (Plain) in order to increase the quantity and caliber of teachers entering the field.

The Early Childhood Teacher Education Diploma
Secondary Teacher Education Diploma,
a certificate in special education,
One of the prerequisites for the pre-service courses that required a C (Plain) was the Diploma in Technical Teacher Education.
The proposal also demanded the establishment of:
All pre-service teacher training institutes (TTCs) will be supervised as campuses by the Kenya Teacher Training College (KeTTC),with the intention of optimizing resource distribution and allocation.
KeSTEM will also give instructors access to resources offered by Kenya Teacher Training Colleges (KeTTC) for continuing professional development (CPD).
It is important to stress that university senates will still decide on the requirements for admission to bachelor’s degree programs in education.
Education graduates will also be qualified to take part in a one-year internship program run by the Teachers Service Commission after completing pre-service training.

The Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) has had many difficulties since its beginning, including a teacher shortage in the Junior Secondary (JS) sector and problems with the pay scale for JS instructors.
Reports suggest that a sizable percentage of talented primary school instructors have not applied for positions teaching junior high as of July 2023, despite TSC’s efforts to hire more primary school teachers.
