This article is all about NEMIS Portal in Kenya, what it is all about, 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 and teaching staff to improve efficiency, and it provides a ground for effective management.
All the stakeholders use NEMIS in the education sector like 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.
