Comprehensive teacher training on the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) and Competency Based Assessment (CBA) started on November 24, 2021 countrywide.
Expected to end on December 17, 2021, the training targets two teachers and a head teacher from each public primary school, including those handling learners with special needs.
Quality Assurance and Standards Director Dr Mugwuku Nthamburi has written to county directors asking them to identify one teacher from Grade 1 to 3 and one teacher from Grade 4 to 5 to undergo the training, which will be conducted for five days through face-to-face and virtual classes.
The blended model of training requires Master Trainers to train the Curriculum Support Officers and CBC Champions both regular and Special Needs Education (SNE) virtually for four days.
Curriculum Support Officers and CBC Champions are required to train teachers through face-to-face for five days while the Master trainers offer professional support during zonal teacher training.
