Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) Homa bay branch is set to partner with Tom Mboya University College to enable teachers further their education in the university.
Union branch Executive Secretary Steven Yogo said this was in line with the union’s objective to encourage secondary school teachers under the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to attain higher education levels.
In a meeting between KUPPET and top administrators of Tom Mboya the two bodies agreed on a plan that will allow TSC teachers with Diploma certificates to enroll for graduate studies.
“The contract we are looking to sign in the near future will allow secondary school teachers within Homa Bay County under TSC to join the university college for their Degree studies at second year levels rather than first year,” said Yogo.
Yogo explained that the university will also generate a website that will enable secondary school teachers within the county to access online classes in line with Covid-19 protocols.
The secretary urged teachers to take extra precautions against the virus.
