CBC to develop learners’ abilities, says CAS Ruto


Education Chief Administrative Secretary Sara Ruto says that the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) focuses more on students’ capabilities.

“The access, equity, and relevance will continue to guide principles for education policy, curricula, and standards,” Ruto said.

She was speaking at Jogoo House on Monday during a courtesy visit from  Charles North, the Acting Chief Executive Officer of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE).

North said that the Global Partnership for Education was impressed with what the government of Kenya was doing in education.

He lauded President Uhuru Kenyatta for being a great champion of quality  Education and for jointly hosting the Global Education Summit with United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

“The summit helped to raise a record 4 billion dollars from donors for the GPE for Finance GPE 2021-2025 under the campaign  “Raise Your Hand” financing campaign,” North said.

Early Learning and Basic Education PS Julius Jwan said that the Government was enhancing the ability to assess learners digitally.
