The Teachers Service Commission was incorporated under Article 237(1) and (2) of the Kenyan Constitution (2010) and is responsible for carrying out Teacher Management functions in the country, including the registration of trained and qualified teachers.
The Commission is mandated to carry out the following responsibilities under Article 237(2) of the Constitution:
a) register trained teachers;
b) recruit and hire registered teachers;
c) assign teachers for duty in any public school or institution;
d) promote and transfer teachers;
e) exercise disciplinary control over teachers;
f) terminate teachers’ employment.
The Commission is also charged with:
- monitoring the standards of education and training for those entering the teaching profession;
- reviewing the demand for and supply of teachers; and
- advising the national government on subjects relevant to the teaching profession according to the Constitution.
The Teachers Service Commission must register trained and qualified teachers before they can work in both public and private institutions, according to Kenya’s 2010 constitution.
Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in science or arts, as well as a postgraduate diploma in education (PGDE) and two teaching subjects.
Applicants for registration who have received training in disciplines that are now not on the curriculum, regardless of whether they have finished a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and/or Enhancement, will not be accepted.
Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Arts degrees in the following fields are included in this category, but are not limited to them:
S/NO TRAINING AREA/COURSE
1. Natural resources
4. Animal husbandry
6. Farm machinery
11 . Journalism
12. Kiswahili and Communication
13. Business Management/administration
14. Banking and Finance
16. Actuarial science
17. Environmental science
20. All courses related to engineering
21. Industrial chemistry
23. Hospitality and tourism
24. Foods, nutrition and dietetics
25. Technology and applied biology
Those who have completed a PGDE with these courses are ineligible for teacher registration.
Because these courses do not give sufficient subject content, mastery of the content in two teaching subjects is insufficient.
TSC Act 2012 Section 24(1) requires the Commission to keep a Register of Teachers, which must be made public.
The Teachers Service Commission seeks to make the details of registered teachers public.
