TSC Teachers Named For Manning 2023 National Exams
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has screened 223,223 teachers who will serve as supervisors and invigilators in national exams. TSC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nancy Macharia revealed that an extra 37,731 teachers had been designated as examiners.
Macharia further stated that the Kenya National Examination Council expects all 71,760 center managers to attend sub-county briefing sessions in the first week of October 2023. Attendance at these sessions is required, and no delegates will be allowed.
She continued, “The center managers will participate in sub-county briefing meetings, which are set to be conducted nationwide by the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) during the first week of October 2023.”
Macharia issued a directive instructing all field officers on leave to return to work on October 16, underlining the crucial role they play in ensuring the success of the last phase of national examination preparations.
Macharia highlighted the TSC’s and its staff’s and instructors’ commitment to providing full assistance for the next national tests, with the goal of achieving great success.
She emphasized the TSC’s annual rotation policy, which prevents supervisors and invigilators from the previous year’s national examinations from being retained. Only center and deputy center managers will be required to be physically present in schools throughout the examination period.
Macharia also stated that the 8-4-4 method would be used for the final Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) due to the installation of a new curriculum. In addition, five more classes are planned to take the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).
To ensure the success of the next national tests, TSC CEO Nancy Macharia underlined the vetting process, required attendance at sub-county briefing meetings, the return of field officers, and the commitment to the annual rotation program.
