Training Trainers for Teacher Education and Management in Kenya

The aim of the TOTEMK project is to strengthen the capacity of teacher education and institutional management in Kenya and get more teachers for the labour market that is competent to deliver Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) in the Kenyan schools. The TOTEMK project strongly contributes to well-functioning, relevant and accessible higher education to the students by modernizing partner country’s higher education institutions’ (HEIs) teacher education, responding to the learning and teaching crisis and developing students’ learning to correspond current education needs. This will be done with the help of new pedagogical tools, application of modern pedagogical technology and by empowering lecturers and their students on socio-cultural issues to respond effectively to Kenyan CBC under The Basic Education Curriculum Framework (BECF). In the short term, the project contributes to improving institutional management and teaching capacity in partner country HEIs. The learning/teaching crisis will be jointly addressed among Kenyan and Finnish partners in socially and culturally sensitive ways. The aim of TOTEMK is to be able to provide the labor market with more teachers that are competent in applying CBC at different levels of the educational sector in Kenya.
