The Competency Based Curriculum(CBC) Diploma programmes will be offered in contracted public universities and will last for three years.By the end of three years,the teachers will have the necessary CBC pedagogies per subject, classroom management skills and CBC assessment skills.The teachers will also be taken through CBC instructional strategies, identification of learners competencies,CBC classroom activities among other units.
The Ministry of Education is planning to equip 175,000 P1 teachers with Diploma degrees in CBC.The Ministry,which has already implemented the Competency Based Curriculum in lower grades, revealed that it is working on school-based programmes for teachers with P1 certificate to upgrade to diploma programs with competency based pedagogies.
If the plans are implemented,P1 teachers will be equipped with necessary skills required to handle CBC classes.Even though CBC workshops have been there for quite sometime,they have not been effective since they struggle to handle so much within a very short period of time.
There are high chances that the government might sponsor the teachers to pursue the diploma programme.
