Teachers in Kenya to undergo fresh training

Kenyan Teachers will undergo fresh training in order to improve their capacities in curriculum delivery, Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang has said.

“We shall ensure that the capacity of teachers is enhanced since the quality of education is as good as the quality of the teachers,” said Dr Kipsang.

He was speaking during the launch of Education for sustainable development policy for the education sector at Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).

The country has a shortage of 87,000 teachers but Knut has put it at 90,000 and the government is expected to hire 5,000 teachers in August.

Dr Kipsang said the Ministry had embarked on identifying and addressing gaps in policy planning, management and monitoring and evaluation and address challenges that impede the provision of quality education to learners.

He said the Ministry seeks to address these challenges through national curriculum reforms to make it competency-based, flexible and synchronized with the job market and introduction of a strong pathway.

The Sustainable Development Goals, are a global framework to coordinate efforts around ending poverty and hunger, combating inequality and disease and building a just and stable world.

There are 17 goals in all and nations represented at the UN agreed to them. One goal — Goal 4 — specifically aims to ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is about enabling countries to constructively and creatively address present and future global challenges and create more sustainable and resilient societies.
