Shock to P1 Teachers Without Diploma in Primary Teacher Education
Shock to P1 Teachers Without Diploma in Primary Teacher Education. The Primary Teacher Education PTE certificate will no longer be required in order to become a teacher, according to statements made by the Teachers Service Commission.
This is in line with the Framework on Entry Requirements from the recently released Teaching Service paper.
There are, however, other options, according to the commission. The commission claims that in its stead will now be a diploma that follows the recently implemented competency-based curriculum (CBC).
The teachers’ employer has recently tightened up on issues connected to the teaching profession in order to ensure that new teachers are qualified to lead the education sector.
The CBC Plan directs TSC to stop using PTE instructors.
TSV set the minimum requirements for all teachers working with students in grades 1 through.
The commission stipulates that a tutor must hold a Diploma in Primary Teacher Education (DPTE) in order to work with young children.
The commission currently stipulates that the minimum prerequisite for anyone wishing to teach at any level is a diploma in education. The purpose of this activity is to improve the country’s educational standards.
In addition, teachers will be accepted with post-training upgrade certificates if they successfully complete the ECDE, PTE, DTE, BED, DIP ED, and SNE training programs.
Teachers will be prepared and trained to instruct students in grades 1-3 and 4-6 with a focus on foreign and native languages after completing the aforementioned course.
Several P1 teachers have enrolled in supplementary courses at Teacher Training Colleges (TTCs) around the country, according to the TSC Databank.
These initiatives have broken the hopes of thousands of P1 teachers who hoped to be hired by TSC without having to upgrade their Primary Teacher Education (PTE) certifications.
The company has announced that, throughout the future hiring process, P1 instructors with a diploma degree will be given preference.
Because we are currently in the process of switching to a competency-based education system, these teachers will be awarded 10 more points than the other teachers to show that they possess a CBC upgrading certificate.
TSC will completely stop employing P1 teachers in 2024. Those who haven’t yet updated may do so at this time.
