The teachers’ employer says the move is aimed at addressing the huge capacity gaps being experienced following the rolling out of the new Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) system of education.

TSC says that the CBC system has shifted most of the education work to secondary schools, leaving primary schools with many teachers but with less work.
