2 mins read

The government has announced significant progress in the transition of Form One admission to secondary schools, with an impressive 91 percent.

Basic Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang said this represents an impressive number of the learners who sat for last year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) successfully enrolling in their respective secondary schools.

The PS assured that the Ministry of Education is committed to ensuring that all 131,854 students yet to join secondary school are admitted promptly.

While some learners may have chosen to pursue technical courses in local vocational training institutes, a notable number of parents have cited financial constraints as the primary obstacle preventing them from sending their children to school.

The admission process for Form One students commenced on January 15 and was conducted online through the National Education Management Information System (NEMIS).

NEMIS is a comprehensive online platform designed for managing and automating educational data and other related administrative functions.

The Ministry has introduced a reporting module to streamline the admission process further. Principals in both public and private schools will use this module to report the admission status of each learner online. This innovation aims to provide real-time data on admission trends and reporting, facilitating more informed decision-making.

Within this module, school principals are responsible for ensuring the accuracy, security, and integrity of their school’s data on the NEMIS platform.

The Ministry of Education says it is working diligently to address the challenges faced by parents who are struggling with financial constraints, intending to ensure that all eligible students have access to quality education in Kenya.
