Procedure for Online TSC Transfer Application
Kenya’s Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has taken significant strides to digitize its services in order to improve efficiency and convenience for teachers across the country.
The Online Teacher Transfer Application method is one notable digital breakthrough established in February 2021. Transfer requests are normally reviewed by the Appointment Board at the end of each year. The Commission, however, retains the authority to transfer instructors based on specific criteria.
A teacher must complete a transfer application through their institution’s head to be considered for a transfer, which may be accessed from TSC offices or the website. The completed application forms must then be sent to TSC or its agents by the institution’s head. Transfers of primary school teachers within a county are administered by the TSC County Director, whereas transfers beyond the county, including transfers to tertiary schools, are handled by TSC headquarters.
Requests for transfers are swiftly acknowledged, and Appointment Board decisions are notified to instructors in due time. Transfers are contingent on the availability of vacancies and replacements.
