The Kenya Primary Schools Head teachers Association (KEPSHA) Western region has urged the government to provide adequate resources to schools in order to realize the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).
Speaking during the close of a three day conference for Western region head teachers in Busia on Thursday, KEPSHA National Treasurer, Josephat Otiende said the association supports the programs being initiated by Teachers service commission (TSC) and the ministry of education.
“The government has a good programme but it should bring required materials to schools and train teachers to spearhead the curriculum implementation,” he said.
Otiende added that teachers will be recognized and awarded in three categories of head teacher of the year, teacher of the year and IT teacher of the year by TSC to compete from the zonal level to the national level.
“There will be a recruitment of teachers from the zonals, Sub County, county and regional who will scoop awards in the national level by TSC so I urge teachers to compete intensively,” he told teachers.
The western region KEPSHA association resolved to review their constitution for it to remain relevant to the current education system in order to bring other heads on board before the national election set to be held next year.
