KNUT says teachers are not prepared for Competency based Curriculum


Kenya National Union of Teachers has faulted the Ministry of Education for hurriedly implementing the competency based curriculum.

According to the KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion, the union conducted a research that revealed most of the teachers  do not have adequate training.

“Most of the teachers expected to implement the curriculum have not been adequately trained by relevant authorities which will hinder the implementation process and also adequate learning materials for students has not been rolled out by the government.”said Sossion

The new curriculum which was meant to improve education qualities in the country was rolled out by the government in January 2019 .

KNUT conducted the research in all the 47 counties basing on teachers preparedness about the new curriculum.

Sossion has further said Kenya’s education system will not be used for experiments by NGOs

“Our education system will not be used as an experiment by foreign bodies who want to use our education in making profit with a system rejected by other countries because of failure.”Added Sossion

He also urged newly appointed education cabinet secretary George Magoha to work with key stakeholders when implementing the curriculum because it cannot be forced on  people.
