Macharia added that they have being employing 5,000 teachers annually adding that the recruitment of 30,000 teachers in January will go a long way in reducing the shortage of teachers.

“We were expected to start training of 60,000 teachers on the new Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) for JSS in March, but due to the August elections the trainings were halted,” Macharia said.

She added:” Recently, we had begun training teachers because initially JSS was to be domiciled in secondary school but we didn’t finish. Now that the new government has settled the issue after they analyzed the report from the CBC taskforce appointed by the President, we shall resume the trainings starting with Grade 7 teachers.”

“We are going to engage with all relevant education stakeholders, to give teachers more time to be trained and be well equipped. They just need to be inducted a little bit into what is expected of them.” she concluded.
