KNUT Cites Inflation in Appeal to KNEC to Increase Examiners’ Pay
Teachers who are examiners are contracted under the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) and are also paid by the same body.
Collins Oyuu urged KNEC to increase the remunerations that are allocated to centre managers, invigilators supervisors and markers involved in the whole process of conducting and marking the national examinations.
There are two national examinations done in Kenya that KNEC oversees. This comprises the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) and the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).
Collins Oyuu appreciated the work done that heads of institutions have done in their respective institutions as well as the excellent work they did in the management of the recently completed KCSE examinations.
In addition, he thanked markers for their efforts in ensuring examinations are marked on time. He also reminded teachers and delegates countrywide that this year will have three national examinations, that is, the KCSE and KCPE 2021 and 2022 and the final primary school CBC Class.
In politics, Oyuu said that he believes teachers will make the right decision in the upcoming elections and elect the right leader and implored teachers’ leaders to set the tone and be role models for other teachers and all other workers.
Oyuu spoke while he attending a conference in Mombasa that was attended by more than 9,000 school principals.
In recent times, the conference had not been held due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 global pandemic in March 2020.
This year the conference was held at the Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan School and shall conclude on Friday.
The theme for the ongoing conference was re-examining education in the aftermath of the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).
