The following teachers have been selected to Attend 2 Day TUSOME Training Workshop This Week from this exact date

Teachers will attend a two day training workshop under the programme “Tusome Early Grade Reading Activity”.

Tusome will conduct a national teacher training targeting all grade 1 to 3 teachers in all public schools in the country.

In other counties the training will start on Monday 25th July 2022 and end on Tuesday. The programme targets teachers in lower primary level.

Tusome Early Grade Reading Activity is one of the Ministry of Education programme that supports English and Kiswahili literacy.

Primary school teachers teaching Grade 1, 2 and 3 will attend the workshop this week. Ministry said the training will include all teachers in public schools teaching lower Grades.

Tusome is a programme implemented through the Ministry of Education (MOE) in all 24,452 public primary schools and over 1,500 low-cost private primary schools across Kenya.

Tusome (“Let’s Read” in Kiswahili) is a flagship partnership between USAID and the Government of Kenya’s Ministry of Education.

The Tusome technical approach employs research-driven learning materials, proven teaching methodologies, and an innovative tablet-based feedback and monitoring system to improve the literacy outcomes of 7.8 million pupils by 2021.

The current primary school population is estimated at 11.4 million children in both public and private primary schools.

This rapid growth in primary school population is largely attributed to the introduction of Free Primary Education by the Government in 2002 and other interventions.

According to Ministry enrolment in schools indicate that Kenya is on track to achieve the Education For All (EFA) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Commitments by 2015.

MOE through Tusome pays teachers who attend their workshop amount ranging from 2300/- per day to 2865/- per day and takes at least two days workshop attendance for teachers.

However there is confusion after the coming of the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) which make implementation of Tusome program difficult.

CBC and Tusome make teaching clash as these are two teaching approaches with their own resources. Many teachers however prefer the Tusome programme to CBC.

Teachers were issued with Tusome schemes of work and lesson plans as well as teaching and learning materials when the program was first launched.

Early this year the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) in collaboration with the Ministry of Education (MoE) reviewed the English Language, Kiswahili Language, Indigenous Activities for Grade 1, 2 and 3 based on the recommendations from the Report on the implementation of Languages in Grades 1, 2 and 3.

The Ministry of Education approved the changes of name from Literacy Activities to Indigenous Language Activities.

Additionally, the MoE approved the review of the curriculum designs for English Language, Kiswahili Language and Indigenous Language Activities Grade 1, 2 and 3 in line with the revised time allocation as follows: English Language (5 lessons), Kiswahili Language (4 lessons) and Indigenous Language Activities (2 lessons).

All primary schools were ordered to comply and to start implementing the changes in term 1 that began on 25th April 2022.
