Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has urged teachers in West Pokot to embrace the School-Based Teacher Support System (SBTSS) training, which is being implemented by the Centre for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education in Africa (CEMASTEA).
Speaking during the official opening of the training in West Pokot recently, West Pokot TSC Sub-county Deputy Director Jane Nyakoe noted that the training was very important for retooling the teachers.
“As time changes, teaching methodologies also change,” said Nyakoe, who singled out the inclusion of Information Communication Technology (ICT) in lessons.
The training was held across the whole county, and subsequently at the sub-county levels. North Pokot Sub-county teachers assembled at Kacheliba Girls Primary School while those from Central Pokot held theirs at Chesta Teachers Training College.
In South Pokot Subcounty, the training was held at Propoi Girls Secondary School while in West Pokot Sub-county, it was held at Chewoyet Boys National School. The training involved teachers of Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and Physics, each subject carrying 20 teachers.
English had 18 in every sub-county. In the primary school section, Science and Mathematics had 80 teachers each and 95 teachers of English participated.
