Over 7000 Teachers Miss Out On The New Curriculum Training

More than 7,000 teachers did not take part in the teacher training exercise ahead of the implementation of the new lower secondary school curriculum. 

According to preliminary results from the Ministry of Education, many teachers were denied to take part in the training because their schools do not have Uganda National Examinations Board-UNEB centre numbers. 

According to UNEB records from 2019, there are 2,205 UNEB centres at secondary school level.

Officials from the education ministry say that only 8,820 teachers are estimated to have been trained.

Fred Kyaka, the assistant commissioner for secondary education says that during site visits, they discovered that in some parts of the country, teachers who did not come from schools with UNEB centre numbers were left out of the exercise.

Dr Jane Egau the Commissioner in Charge of Teacher Instructor, Education and Training-TIET says that it was unfortunate that some teachers missed the training.

 She, however, says that during the second year of implementation of the curriculum, they plan to fill the gap.
