CBC: Gov’t assures of smooth transition to senior school


The Ministry of Education has assured parents of a smooth transition of pupils from Junior Secondary School to Senior School.

Speaking Wednesday morning when he officiated a stakeholders engagement forum on senior school and teacher education at the Kenya Institute of  Curriculum Development (KICD) Basic Education Principal Secretary Dr. Belio Kipsang said his ministry will be introducing 12 legislations that will offer guidelines on the transition of pupils to senior school.

He added that the ministry is aware of the anxiety the parents are undergoing following the hectic implementation of the Junior Secondary School two years ago.

Belio said the ministry will soon present a sessional paper which seeks to review students’ operational costs to establish and provide minimum essential packages in schools for adequate delivery of Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).

He said the Sessional Paper draws from the Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms (PWPER) and provides a policy framework for transforming education, training and research for sustainable planning.

He also promised the government is doing everything to complete the current JSS cycle to allow parents to comfortably transition their children to senior secondary school.

Meanwhile, Kenya is set to host the 6th Partnership for Skills in Applied Science, Engineering and Technology (PASET) Forum and Regional Scholarship and Innovation Fund (RSIF) Annual Conference in Kenya.

The Conference will take place in Nairobi, Kenya from 23rd – 25th April 2024.

The Conference will be held under the theme: “Leveraging technical, Vocational Education and Training in the knowledge and skills ecosystem for Africa’s Industrialization.”
