Collection Of PTE 2022 KNEC Certificates In TTC’s Kick Off. Candidates who took the Primary Teacher Education (PTE) exams in 2022 can now visit their respective colleges to pick up their certificates, according to the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec).
The Teacher Training College (TTC) Principals were instructed by Knec to come to their offices and collect the documents before giving them to the applicants.
“PTE examination certificates for July 2022 are available for pickup. Principals may pick them up personally or designate a designated college representative, who must present an authorized letter from the college as identification before picking them up from the KNEC offices, according to information posted on Knec’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.
However, in order to upgrade their certifications and align them with the new curriculum, teachers will now need to take another step.

The TSC intends to stop hiring PTE teachers because there won’t be any 8.4.4 classes left in elementary schools by the next year, according to the TSC.
Grades 1 through 6 will be offered in primary institutions.
Both P1 and ECDE instructors should take required training in order to meet the requirements of the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC), according to a taskforce’s recommendation.
The teaching staff desires that the teachers improve their certification to the most recent DPTE (Diploma Primary Teacher Education).
TSC teachers who wish to continue teaching in primary and secondary schools will also have to undergo a one-year mandatory retraining to align them with the demand of the new curriculum.
This is part of the of recommendations of a draft report by the Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms (PWPER).
The training of the first cohorts started in October last year.
The second cohorts started in September this year. According to a circular dated 6th October 2022 sent to TTC Principals, only eight TTCs are to be used to train the teachers this year due to the low enrollment.
Due to the low number of P1 teachers who applied for upgrading the Ministry of Education, Principal Secretary, ordered placement of students to be merged into eight colleges.
The PS asked the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) to redistribute the students in the eight colleges as follows;
- Murang’a TTC for Meru, Egoji and Kigari TTCs
- Machakos TTC for Kitui, Kilimambogo and Garissa TTCs
- Kericho TTC for Tambach, Baringo and Mosoriot TTCs
- Asumbi TTC for Migori and Kenyenya TTCs
- Kaimosi TTC for Eregi, Seme, Bondo, Ugenya, Bunyore, Bishop Mahon and Chesta TTCs
- Shanzu TTC for Galana and Kwale TTCs
- Aberdare TTC for Narok TTC
- Thogoto TTC for Kamwenja TTC
In accordance with TSC’s Framework, PTE teacher recruitment will come to an end in 2024, and DPTE will take its place as the prerequisite for entering the teaching profession.
Many P1 teachers have not yet enrolled in the program due to the hefty training costs. Despite not upgrading, the teachers are still hoping to find work.
