Since the implementation of the competency-based curriculum, most of the work is now carried out in secondary schools. As a result, the load in primary schools has decreased significantly.
After passing the Kenya Certificate of Basic Education examination, current sixth form students enrolled in the 8-4-4 system will be enrolled in Form 1 when they move from form 6 to form 7 in 2023. (KCPE).
Grades 7, 8 and 9 are taught in junior high schools. After passing the 6th grade national exam, students will move to secondary school in 2023 following the new Competency Based Curriculum (KBK) 2-6-3-3-3 system.
Since then, some primary schools have been selected by the Ministry of Education and Culture to be converted into secondary schools. The Junior High School wing (JSS) will be upgraded until the infrastructure is improved.
The infrastructure of any educational institution will be developed by consolidating registered and nearby schools. In some schools, elementary and middle schools are in the same building.
The Ministry of Education and the Department of Teachers chose to send primary and secondary teachers to secondary schools to address this shortage. All high school teachers will now supervise the high school.
Elementary school teachers have the right to teach middle school students who meet the following requirements;
- Diploma and Degree in Special Needs Education
- Diploma and Degree in Early Childhood Development Education
- Diploma (Major Option)
- Diploma in Education, Secondary Option
Qualification (secondary option) but lack of C+ in KCSE or subject teaching
TSC also indicated in its report on the readiness of teachers to implement the competency curriculum presented to the DPR education committee that it will place P1 teachers who have these skills in secondary schools.
