KUCCPS Gets Rid of School Course Application System
The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has stated that the school/center application mechanism for students seeking government financing will be discontinued. KUCCPS requires secondary school principals to upload the program preferences submitted by KCSE applicants in their individual schools using this application procedure.
KUCCPS CEO Agnes Wahome noted the end of the application process as a result of the new funding model in a letter dated October 9 and addressed to all secondary school principals statewide. In this novel technique, candidates choose programs based on a variety of criteria, including the cost per program as indicated in the placement agency’s online application system.
The obligation for arranging the placement of Government-Sponsored Students into universities and colleges falls to KUCCPS, a State Corporation. It also creates career advising programs for students, disseminates information about various programs, their costs, and the academic fields targeted by the government, among other things.
According to Wahome, applications for placement in universities and colleges will begin after the KCSE Examination results are released and training institutions disclose program specifics, capacity, and associated expenses. This data will help candidates and their parents/guardians make educated selections.
Wahome also emphasized KUCCPS’s dedication to giving students with ongoing career assistance while they are still in school and assisting them in selecting topics that match with their intended occupations. Furthermore, capacity building for Career Guidance Teachers will be improved so that they can successfully help students in their application for placement.
