TSC Declares a Mandatory Registration for Teachers
TSC Declares a Mandatory Registration for Teachers. In a significant development, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has introduced a mandatory registration process for all teachers under its authority. The commission, which is constitutionally charged with responsibility from the registration and recruitment of teachers to their promotion, discipline and salaries, now emphasizes the need for all teachers to register as teachers under the Teachers Act.
This requirement is essential for teachers to maintain their roles within the primary and secondary schools within the TSC remit.
TSC emphasizes that only teachers registered under the Teachers Act will be authorized to provide teaching services within Kenya. This decisive measure aims to address the growing number of unregistered teachers in primary and secondary schools. By introducing mandatory registration, the commission is trying to bring order and responsibility to the teaching profession.
The move signifies TSC’s proactive stance towards streamlining the education sector and ensuring that only qualified and officially recognized teachers are entrusted with the pivotal task of molding young minds. The registration process is not a mere formality; it is a strategic measure to maintain standards and increase the quality of education provided in Kenyan schools.
These developments are likely to have far-reaching consequences, affecting current and future teachers. For those already practicing the profession, mandatory registration underlines the importance of compliance with regulatory frameworks and reaffirms their commitment to maintaining professional standards.
