TSC Has Posted 2023/2024 JSS Recruitment Requirements
In Kenya, the implementation of the competency-based curriculum has resulted in new requirements for P1 teachers to instruct in JSS. Because of this change, primary schools now have less work to do because secondary schools are now responsible for teaching most of the curriculum.
Sixth-formers under the 8-4-4 system will move on to Form 1 upon passing the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exam in 2023. After the sixth grade national exam, the new Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) 2-6-3-3-3 system will be implemented, making the role of junior high schools in the education of children in grades 7, 8, and 9 vital.
The Ministry of Education and Culture has chosen several elementary schools to transform into junior highs (known as Junior Secondary Schools, or JSS) and is working to improve the facilities there in order to keep up with the growing demand for secondary education.
As a result of a severe lack of secondary school instructors, the Ministry of Education and the Department of instructors have agreed to send primary school teachers to secondary schools to oversee high school students.
Qualifications in special education, early childhood development education, a certificate or degree with an optional secondary school component, or suitable subject qualifications (even without a C+ in KCSE) are among the requirements for elementary school teaching eligibility.
The P1 instructors with these credentials will be assigned to secondary schools by the instructors Service Commission (TSC). Diplomas, postgraduate degrees, master’s degrees, and even doctorates are all acceptable in addition to experience teaching in secondary schools (JSS).
In conclusion, the necessity to adapt to a competency-based curriculum is reflected in the new TSC requirements for P1 teachers who are allocated to teach JSS in Kenya. These alterations are made with the intention of bettering elementary and secondary education.
