Knec Invitation for 2022 Training of KCPE and KCSE Examiners

- Advertisement -

The Kenya National Examinations Council, Knec recently invited interested and qualified teachers to apply for an upcoming training for examiners in the following papers:

2022/2023 KCPE Examiners Training

Knec will train examiners in English Composition and Kiswahili Insha only.

This is simply because the remaining multiple answer KCPE papers are electronically marked using Optical Marker Reader machines.

2022/2023 KCSE Examiners Training 

Unlike in the previous KCSE Knec Examiners’ training, this year Knec reduced the list of papers with inadequate examiners.

According to the 2022 August Knec Invitation for the training of KCSE examiners, the council will only train examiners in the following papers: Check the advert below;

Training Fee for 2022/2023 Knec Examiners

In spite of the rising cost of living, the Kenya National Examinations Council has not hiked the training fee for the August/September 2022 Knec examiners.

Both KCSE and KCPE Examiners will part with a standard fee amounting to Kshs 10,500 to facilitate the training.

Kindly note that this facilitation fee is non-refundable and it does not cater for fare/transport.

At the end of the training, teachers who would have surpassed the pass mark will get a certificate certifying them as trained examiners who are fit to mark any upcoming KCSE and KCPE national examinations.

Kindly note that training as a Knec examiner does not guarantee one a direct ticket to marking the examinations. Later this year, in December 2022, Knec will again invite trained examiners to apply for and fill approximately 42,000 slots for examiners that will be filled in a competitive basis.

Trained examiners will have to apply online via the official KNEC portal to be deployed as Knec examiners. Follow the procedure below to apply as a Knec examiner upon completion of training.

Important notes for 2022-2023 Knec Examiners

Vacancies for 2022/2023 KNEC KCPE/KCSE Examiners marking the 2022 KCPE/ KCSE at the knec-examiners-app

The 2022 KCPE and KCSE Knec examiners will be competitively selected from all 8 regions and the 47 counties in Kenya.

Qualified teachers are expected to apply for the available 42, 000 slots for KCSE examiners and 7, 000 slots for KCPE examiners this year before the given deadline via the https://examinersapp.knec.ac.ke/

The 2022-2023 KNEC Examiners vacancies will be competitively filled this year and only teachers who meet the minimum qualifications below will be granted access to apply.

Reporting Dates for 2022/2023 KNEC KCPE/KCSE Examiners marking the 2022 KCPE/ KCSE

Any teacher applying for the 2022/2023 KNEC Examiners Vacancies for KCPE/ KCSE marking must

  1. Be a Kenyan Citizen
  2. Possess a valid national identification card.
  3. Be TSC Registered
  4. Not be on TSC interdiction for any indiscipline cases
  5. Possess a valid KNEC registration Certificate for all examiners who have completed the KNEC training modules for all examiners.

Kindly note that only invited examiners only will be allowed to access the marking centers on the reporting dates indicated on the invitation letters.

Examiners who will not be able to access the examiners’ portal and download their invitation letters are therefore advised to keep off the marking venues since trying to access the marking centers is an errand of futility.

KNEC invites and selects examiners based on their performance during KNEC training. The top performers are given opportunities first since they are likely to deliver more credible results.


Given the throat-cutting competition for the limited Knec examiners’ vacancies, invited KCPE/ KCSE examiners are therefore advised to strictly adhere to the timelines indicated on the KNEC Examiners’ invitation letters 2022-2023.

The official reporting time is 2:00 P.M. for all KNEC examiners. Kindly note that the reporting dates differ from one KCSE script to the other since the papers have got different demands.

More demanding KCSE papers like English paper 3 Eng 101/3 require more time while marking since examiners have to peruse through at least three compositions per candidate. These examiners therefore will report to their designated marking centers a few days after the candidates sit for their last KCSE examination paper in early April.

Examiners who fail to turn up on the official reporting date and time indicated in the invitation letter will be disqualified.


The 2022-2023 KNEC Payment rates per day remain constant this year. Therefore 2022 KCPE and KCSE examiners will receive Kshs 150 per day for co-ordination of the marking schemes for the first few days.

The KNEC payment rates per script range from Kshs 51 to Kshs 77 depending on the length and demands of the paper. English paper three examiners are the highest-paid Knec examiners in the latest KNEC examiners’ payment rates per paper 2020-2021.

The 2022-2023 KNEC Examiners payment rates may be revised subject to the availability of funds at the council.
