NEMIS Portal: How to Register and Login in 2022

This article is about NEMIS Portal in Kenya, what it is all about, and how to register and log in to the platform. I will also share how to go about performing the different functions on the platform.

What is NEMIS?

When the government of Kenya changed the education system to 2-6-3-3-3, they also launched NEMIS Portal.

NEMIS, the National Education Management System, is a web-based data management tool that collects and reports educational institutions.

It also tracks learners’ performance, teaches staff to improve efficiency, and provides a ground for effective management.

All the stakeholders use NEMIS in the education sector:

  • The Ministry of Education
  • Kenya Primary School Head Teachers Association
  • The National Treasury
  • Kenya Secondary School Heads Association
  • Learners across Kenya
  • Kenya Private Schools Association
  • The Kenya National Examinations Council
  • Teachers, TSC
  • Parents or guardians
  • ICT professionals
  • And other development partners.

How do I register on NEMIS Portal?

To register on NEMIS Portal.

  1. Visit Nemis Website (better do this on a computer)
  2. Click on Register (if new) on the left of the page and fill out the form on the next page.
