How to Apply for a TSC Number Online: Requirements and Status.
Every qualified teacher must register with the Teachers Service Commission in accordance with the TSC Act 2012 before being given a job in any school in Kenya, whether it be a public or private institution.
To support this TSC act, the Ministry of Education issued a directive to all county commissioners directing them to make sure that as of 2017, only qualified instructors are allowed to enter schools. The Teacher Service Commission has granted a certificate of registration to a qualified teacher and registered them.
You no longer need to worry if you are a certified teacher but lack a TSC number. It is important to know that TSC does not accept any manually created applications. All transactions are thus made online.
Teachers who want to work in secondary education must also have at least a C+ (plus) in each of the two topics they will be teaching.
To start the whole process, the following documents are scanned, to make them easier to upload;
- All academic certificates ( primary, secondary, university, or college)
- College/ university transcripts.
- Your photo (passport size)
- Banking slip of a non-refundable registration fee (Kshs 1055 and Kshs 2055 for Duplicate certificate) to be deposited in the following TSC Registration Accounts National Bank of Kenya (for Direct Banking, account number is 01001000905001, or for Simple Banking use this Pay Bill Business Number 625625).
Remember that without this payment, registration won’t be processed. After scanning all the required documents, follow the steps outlined below to start the TSC Number registration process.
