Revised Minimum College Entry Requirements by the State
Revised Minimum College Entry Requirements by the State. The minimum prerequisites to enrol in a Kenyan Teacher Training College, or TTC, have now been lowered by the Ministry of Education. A KCSE graduate must only achieve a minimum mean grade of C (plain), according to regulations. All additional specifications have been eliminated.
The Diploma in Primary Teacher Education (DPTE) and the Diploma in Early Childhood Teacher Education (DECTE) are only two of the many programmes that TTCs in Kenya offer.
Admissions process for TTC
TTC admissions are handled in an open and simple manner. The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) places some students.
If KUCCPS did not place you, you could still apply directly by giving your chosen TTC your KCSE Results Slip or Certificate.
REVISED MINIMUM ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR TEACHER TRAINING COLLEGES
i. a primary teacher education diploma;
A plain C average is all. No longer performance standards based on subjects. You only require a C (plain) on the KCSE exams. Just that.
ii. Early Childhood Teacher Education Diploma;
A plain C average is all.
Admission Requirements for DPTE
You must have a KCSE Mean Grade of C (Plain) to be admitted to DPTE.
The entry-level grade for applicants with disabilities is C- (Minus) in the subjects mentioned above.
Admission Requirements for DECTE
The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (KCSE) must be passed with a C (Plain) Mean Grade in order to qualify for the DECTE. The admission grade for candidates with disabilities is C- (Minus).
Courses for the DPTE and DECTE both run three years. You will be expected to complete the advised number of coursework and practical hours during this time, as well as to succeed on any exams set by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC). As a requirement for teaching practise, a three-month micro-teaching course will also be taken.
