They include centre managers, supervisors, invigilators, drivers and security personnel.

Vetting of teachers identified as supervisors and invigilators will be communicated in July.


“All the officers to be engaged will be expected to register online in the newly developed Online Contracted Professionals Application System,” she said.

Ms Karogo also said head teachers will have a personal responsibility to ensure that examinations in their centres are managed according to the  laid-down regulations.

Knec will also start briefing and sensitising all the centre managers, invigilators and supervisors in the sub-counties.

The sensitisation forums will be done in when schools have closed in line with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) policy that teachers should be engaged only when schools are closed.

Sub county directors have also been directed to file assessment reports on school floods. Ms Karogo said, so far, 66 Sub Counties have filed reports.

The reports show that there was destruction of school facilities, roads, flooding of classrooms and school compounds.

The Ministry of Education has since promised to repair all schools ahead of the national exams.
