Beginning in August 2022, KNEC, the Kenya National Examinations Council, will train teachers to become assessors for the Diploma in Primary Teacher Education (DPTE) and Diploma in Early Childhood Teacher Education (DECTE) programs.
The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC), which was formed by the Kenyan government in 1980, has taken the lead in managing national exams, educating examiners, and awarding certificates to successful applicants.
This Council is committed to providing top-notch services.
The following requirements must be met by all qualified teachers who want to enroll in the training.
- Be registered with the TSC (or employed) and not serving any disciplinary term
- Have teaching experience of relevant subject exceeding three years having attained a degree in education or a Post-graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE)
- Be below 55 years of age and recommended by their head of institution
All subjects referenced in 2 above are listed in the KNEC portal highlighted below.
All the applicants are expected to upload their details after creating an account on the Kenya National Examinations Council website https://examinersapp.knec.ac.ke on or before July 31, 2022.
This free residential training will commence on August 14, 2022 to close on August 20, 2022 at venues to be communicated to successful applicants.
At the same time teachers who are already trained as KNEC examiners are no exceptions as they must undergo the training if they wish to be DPTE/DECTE assessors.
