TSC Teacher Registration Requirements Under the Teachers Service Commission Act 2012
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Act of 2012, Article 237, outlines the essential requirements and procedures for teacher registration in both public and private educational institutions.
The act mandates the registration of all qualified teachers, and those who meet the criteria are issued a certificate of registration bearing a TSC number within 30 days of their application.
Furthermore, the commission publishes the names of registered teachers on an annual basis. Here is an overview of the registration requirements and procedures:
Requirements for Teacher Registration:
Online Application: Applicants must complete the registration process online. A user guide is available to assist with the application process.
Document Upload: The following documents should be scanned and uploaded as part of the registration process:
- Certified copies of academic and professional certificates.
- National identity card.
- Bank slip.
- One passport-size photo.
- Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) pin.
- GP69 form.
- Certificate of good conduct.
- Entry and work permits for non-Kenyans (if applicable).
Payment of Fees:
For new teacher registrations, a non-refundable fee of Kshs. 1,050/- is required.
You can make this payment during the application process using a range of E-Citizen government payment methods, which include MPesa, Airtel Money, KCB Cash, Equity Cash, and E-Agent, among others.
Please ensure that payment is complete before submitting your application.
Duplicate Certificate Application:
When applying for a duplicate certificate of registration, you must provide a non-refundable fee of Kshs. 2,050.
Just like new registrations, applicants can pay this fee using E-Citizen government payment methods.
Please ensure that you scan and upload only original documents during the application process.
These comprehensive requirements and procedures ensure that the TSC Act properly registers all qualified teachers.
The act not only promotes accountability and professionalism in the teaching sector but also provides teachers with a formal recognition of their qualifications, allowing them to contribute effectively to the education system in Kenya.
