Training Of Junior High School Teachers Begins On Monday

3,000/30,000 JSS Teacher Recruits Will Be TVET Graduates

The government is targeting 3,000 trainers from the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions to be on the list of the 30,000 teachers to be hired soon.

Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang on Wednesday said this is because they were discussing issues of the Competency-Based-Curriculum and training, so as to ensure they have quality educated children.

“We are having a discussion of employing 30,000 teachers and I hope when we ask for 3,000 trainers during the recruitment, they will be available,” he said.

He added that the government aims at concentrating on what children can do and not what the children can produce through memorisation, and told the TVET principals that they were the leaders in the said plan.

He was speaking in Mombasa on Wednesday while closing the 25th Kenya Association of Technical Training Institutions (KATTI) Annual conference.

The PS said the principals should ensure that the trainers can apply the knowledge by knowing what is supposed to be done, adding that the principals know what to do.

He asked the principals to ensure that their students focus on being job creators rather than job seekers by ensuring quality production and training.

He reminded the principals that two per cent of the Gross Domestic Product will be set aside for research and innovation and part of the said research and innovation will go to TVETS.

“I am in receipt of a scorecard for all of you where the report shows a favourable score for national polytechnics,” Kipsang said.

However, there is a need for the national polytechnics to improve on innovation and research where you had an average score of 72 percent and it is believed you can do better than 72 percent.”
