“We have already trained teachers who are going to teach in junior secondary schools while the incoming government will train Grade Nine teachers in January to foster the implementation of CBC,” revealed Magoha.
The January grade 9 training will target 116,024 secondary school teachers. Magoha confirmed that 60,000 teachers were trained and More teachers will be trained this term and next term.

“The current government has invested a lot of resources in CBC and with more than 10 million children having been enrolled, the next regime can’t think of abolishing it,” said Prof Magoha.
