Data at all education levels to be placed in one system for proper tracking of learners

Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu. KEMIS, a centralized education management system, will help track learners throughout their education journey.

The Ministry of Education (MoE) is planning to streamline and centralize data at all levels of the education system to be able to track learners right from primary to higher education.

The system, code-named Kenya Education Management System (KEMIS), will serve as a single source of truth and a one-stop-shop for all information about learners and other critical aspects of education.

Consequently, Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) Ezekiel Machogu held a stakeholder forum at Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) yesterday where the scope of the envisioned system was discussed.

Machogu said the system, which is web-based, will guarantee access to accurate data for planning and strategic decision-making on various aspects of education.

He said the system will harmonize the management of data on education from early grade levels to higher education.

“KEMIS will harmonize education data in the National Education Management System (NEMIS), Technical Vocational Education Management Information System (TVET-MIS), and Higher Education Management Information System (HEMIS),” he said.

Present during the occasion included University of Embu’s Vice Chancellor and Chairman of Vice Chancellors Committee Prof Daniel Mugendi Njiru, Chief Executive Officers of State corporations in the ministry, officials from the Kenya Primary School Heads Association (KEPSHA) and its secondary schools counterpart KESSHA.
