Mandera County Government's department of Early Childhood Development (ECD) today commenced a two-day ECDE teachers training on the new basic education curriculum framework at the Riverside hotel in Mandera town, in an occasion presided over by the Deputy Governor H.E Mohamed Arai.

The rollout and implementation of the new curriculum is informed by; the outcome of extensive stakeholder engagement, a national need assessment study by the Kenya institute of curriculum development (KICD), National Curriculum Reforms conference and a number of bench marking studies carried out in a number of countries.

The framework is aligned to the constitution of Kenya, vision 2030 and the need to harmonise the curriculum with the East African countries' as well as several other policy documents that express the aspirations of the country.

The purpose of basic education curriculum reforms is to provide a comprehensive conceptualization of the basic education in pre primary, primary and secondary education.

Our role as county government is to fully implement the pre-primary education which is a devolved function. This is in addition to supporting other levels of education in line with our manifesto. We believe this will greatly contribute to educational performance through employment of ECDE teachers. This acts as a stop-gap measure to fill the gaps left by the non local teachers who fled the county during the height of terror attacks in 2015 and 2016.
