Teaching Courses: The Ministry of Education has scrapped the Primary Teacher Education (P1) and Early Childhood Development Education (ECDE) courses in Kenya.

The Ministry has been selecting students to join primary teacher training colleges for the ECDE and P1 from the month of April each year.

The move to scrap the courses is the latest in a series of education reforms that the Ministry of Education has been undertaking.

In September last year, the Ministry of Education stopped admission of students into primary teacher training colleges. However, admission into three diploma teachers’ colleges continued and students were expected to report this January.

Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang said that the Ministry had embarked on implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum at pre-primary and early grade levels in primary schools and this has an implication on the pre-service teacher.

Aspiring teachers will now take a diploma in Primary Education course, which will is expected to commence in September. The course will take students three years to complete as compared to the current two-year course.

“It is for this reason that the Ministry has decided there will be no intake for pre-primary 1 and P1 primary training this year. The teacher training colleges will be expected to start preparations for the diploma in primary education courses which will start in September 2020,” said the PS in a circular to regional and county directors of education across the country.

The institutions used to admit about 20,000 students annually while private colleges absorbed 4,000 teacher trainees.
