KNEC Changes Professional Contract Payment Rates
The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has implemented new payment systems for teachers registered with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) beginning in 2023. They are strongly advised to sign up for the Contracted Professionals platform, often known as CP2.
This portal, controlled by KNEC, is critical in deploying contracted professionals during national tests, including as teachers, security guards, and drivers.
Nursery, primary, and secondary school instructors will be key in this year’s assessments. KNEC can efficiently deploy and compensate these professors once the tests are done and the results are publicly revealed by putting their details on CP2.
The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has announced that it is ready to conduct national tests to about 2.3 million students taking the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams this year. The KCPE exam will feature around 1,415,315 candidates, while the KCSE exam will have an additional 903,260 participants.
In addition, KNEC Chief Executive David Njengere has announced that preparations for the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) for 1,282,574 Grade Six students have begun.
KNEC has proposed stronger security measures to combat cheating during this year’s national exams, in addition to payment modifications. Notably, examiners will no longer be given all examination papers in the morning; instead, center managers, who are frequently school principals, will choose only the morning exams.
KNEC has also increased its examination storage capacity by purchasing more containers, which will speed up the paper selection and distribution procedure.
These are some of the improvements that will be incorporated in national tests over the coming month. After completing their morning papers, candidates will return them to the container, and the afternoon papers will be distributed.
