Teachers To Begin CBC Classes In Three Weeks’ Time

Graduate Teachers to Undergo a Mandatory 1 Year Retooling Programme, Followed By a 1 year Internship

The Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms (PWPER) has suggested a mandatory one-year retooling programme for pre-service training graduates, followed by a year-long internship before formal registration as teachers.

The current Grade 7 teachers were retooled from March 13 to 19, 2023 on a face-to-face basis in Teacher Training Colleges (TTCs) and select venues in the country.

The taskforce, led by Prof. Raphael Munavu, noted that the recommendation is timely seeing that the country’s education system is transiting from the 8-4-4 system to the new Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

PWPER noted that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) had already taken action, retooling over 229,000 primary and 55,125 Junior Secondary School(JSS) teachers, covering 82% of the workforce.

In addition, it has also introduced remote learning to adapt to the changing educational landscape through technological integration which is crucial for effective CBC delivery.

The taskforce observed that the transformation aligns with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal(SDG) 4 which emphasizes inclusive and equitable education.

Additionally, TSC has introduced Teacher Professional Development (TPD) courses to enhance pedagogical and management skills which ensure that teachers stay tech-savvy.

PWPER also cited mobile applications such as NABU, which offers multilingual children’s books and aligns perfectly with CBC’s goals, providing tools and assessments to enhance critical thinking.
