KUCCPS Reopens Online Application Portal for Diploma Teacher Training Courses; How to Apply

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) reopened the online application portal for placement to diploma teacher training courses on Saturday, July 15.

Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu addressed students at Kangaru School in Embu, where he presided over an education and career guidance day, and announced that applicants will be seeking to fill 13,439 positions in the Diploma in Primary Teacher Education (DPTE) and Diploma in Early Childhood Teacher Education (DECTE) programmes.

The minimum qualification requirement is an average grade of C (plain) on the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam.

According to the Education CS, no additional subject requirements will be implemented.

“For the second year, the placement of trainees to the 32 public teacher training colleges will be handled by the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS), which has opened its online portal for the application,” he noted.

KUCCPS Chief Executive Officer Agnes Mercy Wahome stated in her address at the same forum that the portal would remain accessible until July 28, 2023.

“This opportunity is available to qualified KCSE certificate holders, including non-Kenyan citizens who took the exam between 2022 and 2000,” Wahome explained.

There are 11,358 available positions in the DPTE program, while 2,081 are available in the DECTE course.

While addressing the students at Kangaru School, the CEO of KUCCPS advised students to align their subject choices in Forms One and Two with prospective career goals.

In addition, she advised those in Forms Three and Four to consider four important factors when choosing courses at universities and colleges: their strengths, their passions, the job market, and their salary expectations.

Wahome also advised the students to determine their career paths based on their subject-specific strengths and performance.

Cyrus Gituai, the chairman of the KUCCPS Board, echoed her sentiment, stating that all pupils, regardless of their performance, should have access to higher education.

How to Apply

Candidates have to log in at students.kuccps.net.

Use the KCSE index number, KCSE year, and password to log in.
