The Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) is set to review the competency based curriculum CBC in the country. This is inline with requirements by the International Bureau of Education IBE which provides that curriculums are reviewed every five years.
According to KICD Chief Executive Officer, Professor Charles Ong’ondo, the review will involve looking at the content, policies, teaching and learning materials among other things. The curriculum has currently been executed until grade five.
The activity will also scrutinize gaps among the teachers who are the implementers of the the competency based curriculum CBC while noting available gaps. KICD is planning to involve parents and all stakeholders from around the country. The institute has also welcomed feedback from interested partners. The review on the curriculum will be done based on the outcomes from the assessment
KICD defines a competency based curriculum as a process that gives learners an opportunity to be actively involved in learning. It facilitates identification and development of learner’s unique talents and abilities through different career pathways after grade 9.
