KCPE Knec Contracted Professionals 2021
Knec has been contracting various professionals to help in national exam management and marking.
This year, the Kcpe exam was conducted and marking is 35% complete according to the CS of education Professor George Knec contracted about 7000 teachers to mark Kiswahili Insha and English Composition.
In secondary section, Kcse is still underway. Today marks the third week since the exam started.
Teachers to mark the exams have so far received marking invitation letters indicating the amount of money in Kshs they will be paid per paper and the venues for marking.
From the previous record on payment of contracted officers, Knec will still uphold their payment amount. The payment for 2021 officers will be as follows.
1. KCPE Supervisors will be paid a maximum of Ksh. 2,485 per day
2. KCPE Invigilators will be paid a maximum of Ksh. 1,615 per day
3. KCPE Security Officers: Ksh 1,050 per day
4. KCPE Drivers: Ksh. 1,050 per day
