KNEC Opens CP2 Teacher Registration; Check Out
Teachers who are registered with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) are urged to sign up for the Contracted Professionals platform, often known as CP2. The Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) manages this platform, which is used to deploy contracted professionals during national exams.
Teachers, security guards, and drivers are among the contractual workers. Teachers in nursery, primary, and secondary schools will be critical in delivering this year’s exams.
Knec can effectively deploy these teachers and facilitate payments once the tests are completed and the results are made public by registering their details on CP2. Knec has finalized plans to monitor national exams for around 2.3 million pupils, including those taking the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE). There will be approximately 1,415,315 candidates for the KCPE exam, and 903,260 candidates for the KCSE exam.
The Kenya National Examination Council’s Chief Executive, David Njengere, has stated that preparations for the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) for 1,282,574 Grade Six students are also underway.
Furthermore, Knec has set remuneration rates for contractual experts in 2022 based on their tasks and the region in which they work. These rates differ according to position and location.
Knec has implemented new methods to improve exam security. Rather than collecting all of the day’s examination papers in the morning, center managers, who are usually school principals, will simply collect the morning papers. More containers have been purchased in order to move examination storage facilities closer to schools, minimizing the time it takes to collect and return examination papers.
This adjustment is intended to avoid early exposure to afternoon papers. School or examination center officials will be forced to acquire question papers from the nearest container, removing the need for them to go to sub-county containers.
According to the Knec 2023 examination schedule, KCPE and KPSEA exam candidates will rehearse on Friday, October 27. The three-day exams will be held concurrently, beginning Monday, October 30, and ending Wednesday, November 1. The KCSE exam will take place from November 2 to November 24.
Exam malpractice is still a concern, with many government organizations debating and attributing blame. These debates and blame games have engaged the police, investigators, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP), the Judiciary, and the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA).
Despite these obstacles, preparations for the upcoming exams are in full motion, with test administrators closely monitoring the printing facilities’ preparation processes.
