Several TTCs Resurrect Following Ministry Revision of Entry Grades

Normalcy has restored in over thirty-two colleges that have seen a large enrolment of teacher trainees since the government plan to revise entry grades to Teacher Training Colleges (TTC) was implemented.

The problem had actually gotten worse about two years earlier, when there were more tutors than teacher candidates in these schools.

Since then, things had gotten worse: in order to be admitted, candidates had to have at least a C plain in the KCSE and have comparable grades in English, Kiswahili, one humanities topic, and one science subject.

Under these circumstances, the Institutions had admitted 6935 students in a two-year span.

The situation has subsequently improved, though, since there were 20,845 teacher candidates admitted as of September of last year; this year’s intake is expected to see an even higher number of candidates accepted.

The Ministry of Education, acting through Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, influenced the lowering of the entry grade requirements to these schools, which has resulted in an increase in the number of teacher trainees.

At the moment, there are no minimum subject cluster requirements and a C plain as the minimal admission grade in KCSE.

As a result, students who achieved a C plain on the KCSE and are interested in becoming teachers should submit an application through KUCCPS by April 4th, 2024, in order to be considered.

It should be noted that, similar to other students in different institutions, students who meet the minimal entry grades and are granted admission to Teacher Training Colleges (TTC) also benefit from government subsidized funding.
