AET Terms of Reference: ASEG Training on KCSE Exams Preparation Jobs in Kenya


  • Africa Educational Trust started an accelerated secondary education for girls in Laikipia North in line with its inclusive and equitable strategies in education with the key focus to offer them an opportunity to complete secondary education that would increase their chances of competing and attaining life-long opportunities within their social, economical and political space.

  • The model had been crafted around key strategies for an accelerated curriculum including a close collaboration with the ministry of education to advise on quality of the accelerated curriculum, teacher training to align their practice with the collapsed curriculum, consistent community engagement for ownership and contribution to the model, enhanced monitoring with curriculum support officers for fidelity of implementation and to create the grounding of learning and adoption and an established pastoral care for the girls with the centre management to create a balancing lever between family responsibility and learning while at school and to ensure all the girls are retained

  • To ensure that we remained focus in supporting the girls to realize their dreams, we strengthened a language component which is key in conceptual development across all subjects and a reading program that targeted individualized reading skills. This was crafted and implemented for the last 2 years. Through such an initiative, the learners who could not read with understanding were reduced and this supported teachers to hasten the curriculum coverage. The girls’ self-study was promoted, and teachers got a chance to leverage home assignments expanding opportunities the of supporting girls outside classroom.

  • We are currently on our last months to the National Examination and our focus has shifted to strategies that would enable the learners to attain their best learning achievements and to enable them to grasp opportunities post KCSE including transitioning to tertiary education or engagement with other technical skills that would give them an equal chance to compete in the job market just like learners in the mainstream system.

  • To ensure that we address gaps on exam preparation at both teachers and learners’ level, we wish to have training that aligns teaching to the KNEC principles of setting exams and how learners are expected to prepare for the National Examinations.

  • Teachers develop skills on peer teaching and engage learners to support each other at group work level with a key focus on enhancing peer learning at group level when learners are engaged in group work and when they are doing revision for exams

  • Teachers have a clear strategy on guiding learners on how to manage burnout during the KCSE period and to facilitate learners in giving equal attention to all subjects
