What is This 2-6-3-3-3 system KNEC is talking About
The new education system will replace the current 8-4-4 which has been criticised for long by experts for not being skill oriented.
The new scheme was recommended by a task-force headed by former Moi University Vice Chancellor Douglas Odhiambo which is set to start its testing Next Month
According to the new system (2-6-3-3-3),
primary education will be split into two categories,
which is Pre-primary and Primary education, taking two (2) and six (6) years respectively.
Students will then advance to Junior Secondary School a stage that would take them three (3) years before joining the Senior Secondary level.
At the senior level, they would spend another three (3) years focusing on their areas of specialization depending on their abilities and interests. For instance, if one prefers Science subjects of the Arts, at this stage is when he/she has the privilege to choose.
After the senior secondary stage, students would go ahead to either enroll at vocational training centres or pursue university education.
The evaluation would be through continuous assessment tests (CAT), offered by the respective schools to enable the learners transition by gauging the students skills, competencies and abilities. This model aims at scrapping off the national examinations.
The implementation will affect class one, four, five and six respectively, to prepare them for Junior High School.
This means that the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) will end in 2018, while secondary certificate under KCSE will be wiped out in 2021.
