Dr. Reuben Nthamburi, Director of Quality Assurance at the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), stated that a multi-agency team has trained over 229, 000 teachers to date, ensuring that all sectors and types of learners have their needs fulfilled.
Nthamburi indicated that they are working with the Kenya Institute of Special Education (KISE), the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), and the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) to train teachers who have been allocated to the teacher training program.
During a SemaNaSpox zoom discussion on Monday, Nthamburi revealed that they had effectively trained the instructors who are presently teaching the grade six class, which had just started.
“We have begun teacher training for junior secondary, and we have registered almost 60, 000 teachers who will be in charge of junior secondary from January 2023.”
“Teachers from both public and private schools will be trained on new techniques and assessment,” Nthamburi said, adding that the training will take place at the Sub-County level.
