Teachers who will fail to update their profile will suffer consequences Teachers Service Commission (TSC) agents have said.
According to TSC Director of Quality Assurance and Standards, Dr. Mugwuku Nthamburi, all teachers must update their profile by 30th November 2021 to help the Commission maintain a valid register of teachers.
“To this end, the Commission has opened the online register to allow individual teachers to update their details. A link has been developed in the TSC website where all registered teachers are required to access and update their details by 30 November 2021,” said Nthamburi in a circular dated 28th July sent to all TSC Regional and County Directors.
However the exercise to update profile has dragged with many teachers yet to update their profiles.
According to TSC the exercise is purely meant to update teacher registration details and issue them with a Certificate of Registration.
This means teachers who will fail to update their profile will not receive their Registration Certificates which is a key requirement in the upcoming Biometric Registration exercise for teachers.
The teachers will also have insufficient details in the TSC registration database which may hamper quality services.
Consequently a show cause letter maybe issued to teachers who fail to adhere to TSC policies and instructions.
According to the Commission the Registration Certificate will be sent to the postal address provided during the profile updating exercise.
