The piloting of the 2-6-6-3 education curriculum will continue the third year to fix the current implementation row.

Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed on Saturday announced the national rollout of the Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) was pushed January 2020.

Ms Amina who on December 11 told a Senate Committee her ministry was not ready to roll-out, said the time will allow for the fixing of a few missing links.

She added that they have agreed with other education stakeholders to start training tutors in teaching colleges on the new curriculum in 2019.

“The directorate of quality assurance and standards will be tasked to vigorously track the implementation of the competency-based curriculum in all sub-counties across the country and the training of quality assurance officers that will commence in February 2019,” she said.

Amina added that a secretariat will be established within the Education Ministry to coordinate the priorities, activities, communication and implementation infrastructure to support the CBC.

“The curriculum focus at the Ministry of Education will be re-organised to secure supervision and evaluation of the CBC in all public, private and special needs institutions across the country,” she said.
