Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has issued a circular on the nomination of the centre managers, supervisors and invigilators who will be involved in the administration of the 2020 KCPE and KCSE examinations.
In a circular dated January 25, TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia says the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) requires details for these key field officers to man this year’s national examinations.
“In preparation for the administration of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) Examinations, the Kenya National Examinations Council would wish to have the details of all the Centre Managers, Supervisors and Invigilators who will be engaged in the activity.” Reads the circular in part.
According to the Council, about 286,000 field officers will be required this year; up from the 170,000 engaged in the 2019 national exams.
“An estimated 286,000 field officers will be engaged on agency basis to facilitate in the conduct of exams in the field.
The field officers contracted for administration of exams will be expected to register online using the contracted professional CP2 system by February 25,” says the Council through a five-page document detailing the preparations that have been put in place to ensure the exams run smoothly.
All the Centre Managers, Supervisors and Invigilators are required to register in the KNEC contracted professional system (CP2) and be deployed by the TSC Sub County Directors to various examination centres. The contracted professional system (CP2) is accessible through the following link/URL: http://cp2.knec.ac.ke.
Further, examination centres with less than fifteen (15) candidates will be entitled to only one invigilator, no centre manager or supervisor should be deployed in such centres. The centre will be hosted by another centre and therefore, Centre Manager and Supervisor of the hosting centre will serve the hosted centre.
Dr. Macharia now directs TSC Sub county directors to to identify, nominate and vet Centre Managers (who must be the head of the institution); Supervisors and Invigilators and deploy them to examination centres using the CP2 system by 26th February, 2021.
