Uhuru okays new reward scheme for tutors who excel in their jobs. This brings good news to supervisors, invigilators, examiners and all teachers who were involved in the administration of exams as Nancy Macharia has listed them among those who will be rewarded in the new scheme.
Speaking during the release of 2021 KCSE, Macharia confirmed the good news to supervisors, invigilators examiners and teachers who showed good behaviour during administration of the exams as they will be rewarded accordingly.
Dr Macharia said among those to be rewarded are teachers who were involved in invigilation, supervision and marking of the exams.
Previously, only the center managers or the Principals were recognized and awarded when their schools did well in the Kenya National Examination. The new reward scheme is therefore good news to supervisors, invigilators and examiners as they are going to be recognized for job well done.
In 2020 KCSE, Kapsabet Boys’ principal Kipchumba Maiyo was rewarded after his school topped with mean score of 10.51. Kenya High principal Florah Mulatya was also rewarded. The school was number two nationally after posting a mean score of 10.30.
TSC also rewarded Mang’u High head teacher John Munyua, whose school was third. William Mwangi of Alliance High was rewarded too after was ranked fourth nationally.
Mary Hill Girls’ Principal Jacinter Waweru closed the top five secondary school heads rewarded by TSC, which also also rewarded five primary school head teachers.
