Acquiring Education Degree Gets Easier As KUCCPS Reviews Minimum entry requirements for degree courses

KUCCPS Admission to TTCs to Begin Next Month

The admission of new students, who want to pursue diploma in primary teacher education to various teachers’ training colleges through Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) is expected to start in June.

This is after KUCCPS recently expanded its mandate, when the Ministry of Education transferred admission of new TTC students to the placement agency.

KUCCPS CEO, Dr Mercy Wahome, said KUCCPS would add value to the TTC admission process since it would utilise its automated placement system to guarantee fair competition among applicants. “One thing we pride ourselves on is being able to place students in the fairest way possible. We can assure the Ministry that KUCCPS is ready for the task,” Wahome said.

According to Wahome, candidates whose 2021 KCSE results were released were also free to apply. This will be the second cohort to be admitted to the public primary TTCs under the new Diploma in Teacher Education and Diploma in Early Childhood Development Education.

In the 2021 placement, the capacities at the three secondary diploma TTCs were filled 100 per cent by KUCCPS. The primary diploma TTCs attracted 990 trainees of the 10,000 that the ministry’s recruitment targeted. With KUCCPS coming on board, the stakeholders expressed hope that the enrolment in the public primary TTCs would increase.

Ahead of the 2022 intake, the Ministry and KUCCPS convened a stakeholder forum for principals and deans of curriculum from all the 34 public primary teacher training colleges, to discuss a roadmap for the admissions and train the participants on the automated KUCCPS placement processes.
