KNEC’s Stern Warning to Examiners Concerning Motivational Talks and Workshops
The Kenya national examinations council, KNEC, has cautioned examiners against engaging in motivational talks and workshops.
In a circular, KNEC/CONF/EA/FAS/EXM/023/022, written and signed by KNEC CEO on David Njengere on 13TH September,2023, the examiners and assessors are reminded that a majority of them have continuously been called upon by various organizations or institutions to facilitate in workshops or to give motivational talks aimed at preparing candidates for national examinations, yet they did an oath of secrecy.
“While preparing candidates for examinations, peer learning and enhancing pedagogical skills are good practices, the Council wishes to observe that the Oath of Secrecy which every contracted professional, examiner or assessor signs prohibits among other things, engaging in activities deemed to pose conflict of interest, and divulging one’s identity as a KNEC examiner/assessor,” reads the letter in part.
The letter further demands that all contracted professionals, examiners or assessors to desist from facilitating such workshops.
