A huge blow to teachers again after the Teachers service commission released a list of banned Bachelor of Arts and Science degree teaching courses. The commission will no longer be registering any teachers whose subjects have been wiped off from the curriculum.
TSC is an independent body in Kenya that is required by law to register, deregister punish and employ teachers. In the recent past, TSC has been rolling out new changes in the education sector which has raised mixed reaction among teachers across the country.
The latest circular posted by the Teachers Service Commision, contains all the information regarding INELIGIBILITY of the courses and reasons for their delisting.
All the graduate teachers whose training fall in the bracket of delisted courses will not be registered with the Teachers Service Commission and have been advised to look for work in other sectors.
However, the commission assured teachers that the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts holders qualify for registration as long as they possess a Post Graduate Diploma in Education and any other two teaching subjects.
Below is the list of courses that have been BANNED by TSC.
- Technology and applied biology
