More Teacher Training Opportunities in the following areas
More Teacher Training Opportunities in the following areas. More training opportunities for teachers have been revealed by the Teachers Service Commission, or TSC. As the Competence Based Curriculum is implemented fully, instructors will receive new training in new subject areas, according to the Commission.
The unique areas of training for teachers who would be active in junior and secondary school instruction have been specified by the Teachers Service Commission.
According to CEO Nancy Macharia, the new subject areas will empower students to make decisions based on their interests, talents, and personalities. She made this statement in an advisory to the State Department of Early Learning and Basic Education on Curriculum Development.
Teachers of Integrated Science and Health Science will receive new training in biology and chemistry, while teachers of Pre-Technical and Pre-Career Education will receive new training in physics and mathematics.
The guideline states that teachers of geography, history, and CRE will receive social studies training.
Visual arts (fine art, photography), Performing Arts (music, dance), Home Science, Computer Science, Foreign Languages, Kenyan Sign Language, and Indigenous Languages will all be available as elective courses.
In a letter dated July 2021, Dr. Macharia stated that the Commission’s advisory on teacher training and requirements was created to help ensure that the delivery of the junior and senior school curriculum went as smoothly as possible.
Dr. Macharia urged the distribution of sufficient funding to enable teacher retraining and retooling. The Junior Secondary school teachers training started on Monday 13th March 2023 and will end on Friday 17th March 2023. The issues and learning areas are addressed in the training which is focused in improving the learning experiences under CBC.
The TSC recommended that students be enrolled in the new topic areas at Kagumo, Kibabii, and Lugari teacher colleges while student admissions to universities should be informed by the new subject areas.
