According to Teachers Service Commission (TSC) chief executive Nancy Macharia, teachers who demonstrated integrity and professionalism during the administration of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams would be rewarded.
Teachers who helped with exam invigilation, supervision, and marking will be among those rewarded, according to Dr Macharia.
She congratulated teachers for their efforts in preparing candidates for the 2021 KCPE in a reduced academic year.
I wish to report that nearly all the 130,667 teachers involved in the examination conducted themselves with the utmost professionalism,” Dr Macharia said during the release of the KCPE results by Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha on Monday.
“This shows our teachers are determined to ensure the credibility of our exams,” she said adding that the reward and recognition will be done in line with the Performance Recognition, Reward, and Sanctions Policy.
Last year, 30 teachers were recognized for their contributions to the administration of the KCPE and KCSE exams during the 2020 examinations.
During World Teacher’s Day, teachers whose schools received high marks in the 2020 national examinations were recognized. TSC, on the other hand, will act harshly with teachers who are involved in examination irregularities, according to Dr Macharia.
Meanwhile, Dr. Macharia stated that during the last three years, 229,292 teachers have been trained for all levels of the new curriculum, including Grade Six, which will begin next month.
The commission has planned the training of 60,000 junior secondary school teachers in CBC and Competency-Based Assessment (CBA) with effect from April 25 to May 13, 2022,” Macharai said.
