Govt resumes registration of teachers
13 May 2014, 16:46
Nairobi - The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has announced that it is going to undertake a countrywide registration of teachers.
According to an advertisement by the commission, licensing of teachers has a constitutional backing in Kenya.
The registration, according to TSC is in conformity with the TSC Act No. 20 of 2012 which stipulates that “a person shall not engage in the teaching service unless such person is registered as a teacher under this Act.”
The exercise will involve teachers from both the public and private institutions including Early Childhood Development (ECD) teachers and is geared towards regularizing of teachers’ professional status.
The advert further cautions schools managements going forward not to hire teachers who are not registered. The registration of teachers will regulate the profession in the country and put in the ranks of other professions whose workers are registered. Among these are nurses and doctors.
Commission Secretary, Gabriel Lengoiboni, says that the exercise will serve to do away with individuals who have no qualifications but have been offering services.
He says that the 90-day exercise will be done online by obtaining the registration forms at the commission’s website (www.tsc.go.ke).
