Schools Ordered To Submit The Following Students’ Data To KUCCPs

by Business Watch Team

Secondary School Principals have been ordered to provide Kenya University and College Central Placement Services (KUCCPS) with valid and up-to-date contact information for all Form Four candidates

According to a circular from the Ministry of Education, on August 24, 2022, signed by Dr. Julius Jwan, who is the Principal Secretary in the State Department of Early Learning and Basic Education, this data and support will allow KUCCPS to create a database with contact information for all candidates for easier communication.

Dr. Jwan issued a circular that said KUCCPS intends to develop a database with contact information details of all the candidates. This will facilitate communication to the candidates and their parents and guardians, regarding school and center application, revision, and any other relevant information, regarding government sponsorship.

Under the government policy on the transition from basic to higher education, to be able to expand placement opportunities to all the candidates, the KUCCPS normally requests schools to submit the candidates’ applications for placement to colleges and universities before they sit for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).

Under this notification, all the schools are required to create an account where principals apply for students’ placement in universities or colleges. Only the principal can submit the school applications and not individual students.

Despite this being a mandatory requirement, all candidates sitting the KCSE exam to apply to KUCCPS for courses they wish to study in universities and middle-level colleges, a big number of principals do not send their students’ applications to the KUCCPS hence killing the dreams of many of the students.

The selection process for courses at colleges and universities typically starts at the high school level, when teachers, particularly those in charge of career departments, are typically expected to advise their students to make wise selections among degree, diploma, certificate, and artisan programs based on their preferences and academic ability.
