The training that is slated for the 22nd to the 31st of January, 2019 will see all Secondary schools heads and teachers handling group IV subjects getting skills on how to assess the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education, KCSE, project based examinations. The training shall be executed in conjunction with the Kenya National Examinations Council, KNEC, officers; who will give details on the newly introduced interventions in assessing the projects.
