TSC academic and professional requirements for registration for all teachers

Academic and Professional Requirements for Registration of Teachers

Pursuant to Article 237 (2)  of  the Kenya Constitution  2010, the Teachers  Service Commission (TSC) has a Constitutional mandate  to among other functions, register qualified teachers and review the quality of  education and training of  persons entering the teaching service.

Further,  section 23  (2)  of  the Teachers Service Commission Act, 2012 provides that; “A  person shall not engage in  the teaching service unless such person is registered as a teacher under the Act”. This  requirement applies to both public and private learning institutions.

It is, therefore, notified for public information that requirements for registration as a teacher are provided for in Legal Notice No.  50 of  2016 (The Teachers Service Commission Code of Regulations for Teachers (Amendments), 2016).
