Kenya is in the process of implementing the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) and in the year 2023, learners will be transiting from Grade 6 to Grade 7 in Junior Secondary School.

In preparation for this transition, CEMASTEA organized training for secondary school principals drawn from the 47 counties. The theme of the training was ‘Enhancing pedagogical leadership for effective implementation of

Competency Based Curriculum and (SMASE) activities’ the Principals were taken through implementation of CBC in Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) and Senior Secondary Schools (SSS) with the expectation that they would describe the key features of Basic Education Curriculum Framework (BECF) for effective curriculum implementation, evaluate the schools’ readiness to implement the new learning areas under STEM and appreciate the role principals play in the implementation of CBC at JSS  and SSS.

For the Principals to explain pedagogical leadership in curriculum implementation, share ideas on how to provide pedagogical leadership in the implementation of SMASE activities at the school level, facilitate the application of knowledge and skills gained from SMASE activities to other subjects and appreciate their roles as pedagogical leaders for curriculum implementation, they were taken through the roles of the school principals in providing pedagogical leadership in the implementation of SMASE activities at the school level.
