Government's plan to scrap off Diplomas

Thousands of students will be affected.

Kenya National Qualification Framework Authority chairman Bonventure Kere, said during stakeholders’ workshop to sensitise universities and technical and vocational education training institutions on new qualification framework policy that the decision was informed by the long duration students take in institutions of higher learning.

“A diploma takes three years then higher diploma two years. That means that someone is in school for five years and when he joins university for a degree programme, he or she starts in third year or second year, that is unfair to a student,” Mr Kere said.

The agency also revealed that there will be no credit transfer for courses, a move Education CS Amb Amina Mohamed sided with, adding that “a credit whose transfer is likely to give an advantage to a student in grade and score at the receiving institution, will not be approved.”

“Globally, National Qualification Frameworks are systems that record the credits assigned to each level of learning to ensure that skills, knowledge and prior-learning are uniformly recognised and accredited throughout their jurisdictions of application,” CS Amina added.

She added: “Unregulated systems also increase the prevalence of fraudulent and fake certification and cloud the capacity to collect complete and cohesive evidence on a country’s skills landscape.”
