The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) plans to train 60,000 tutors on the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) ahead of the junior secondary school rollout in January.
In a circular issued by TSC Chief Executive Nancy Macharia on Friday, the target group is teachers handling Grades 7, 8 and 9 from public regular and special needs schools, and private institutions.
The first level of training will target teachers of languages, pure sciences, applied Sciences, mathematics, humanities and technical subjects.“The cascade model requires that the master trainers to train the trainers of trainers (ToTs)and thereafter offer professional support during the face-to-face teachers training at county and sub-county levels,” Mrs Macharia said.
She added that the training would begin on April 25 and end on May 13. The master trainers will train the ToTs physically for four days.
The ToTs will then train teachers face-to-face with strict adherence to the Ministry of Health Covid-19 prevention guidelines for another four days, the TSC circular says.
