According to a TSC proposal,Teachers who teach in secondary schools in Kenya will be compelled to teach a third subject on top of the two subjects that each teacher is currently teaching .
The commission further suggests that the current education degree programs that are offered in various universities are supposed to be scrabbled.
This happens to be among the reason as to why tsc is seriously pushing for teachers upgrading Program, this means that all highschool teachers employed and those who are yet to be employed by the Teachers Service Commission will have to enroll for a mandatory Post Training Course which is expected to last for 9 months.
In the upgrading program , it will be required that the teachers are taken through pedagogical approaches alongside other course units.
This therefore means that teachers should be ready to get the third subject which they will use to train inorder to teach together with the current two subjects in the competency based curriculum that is highly taking roots in Kenya.
Highlighted TSC requirements for a teacher to teach in senior secondary school according to the proposal in the policy document include:
1. The teacher must have a minimum KCSE mean grade score of C+ or its equivalent.
2. The teacher must have a minimum of B- (minus) in the three teaching subjects.
3. The teacher must have a three year bachelor of arts /science degree followed by a post graduate diploma.
However, the commission is soon expected to clarify on whether the employed teachers more especially those who scored below a B- (minus) in any of the teaching subjects will be allowed to teach in senior secondary schools .
