TSC Academic Qualifications for Post Primary Teacher Positions
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is in charge of ensuring that only qualified personnel are entrusted with the critical responsibility of educating the country’s youth.
To that end, the TSC has developed stringent criteria for various types of Kenyan post-primary teachers.

They must also have a C+ or above in each of their two teaching courses, or two Principles and one Subsidiary pass at ‘A’ Level.
Furthermore, Graduate Teacher candidates can meet these requirements by having a Bachelor of Education Degree with two teaching subjects, a Bachelor of Science or Arts Degree with a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) in two teaching subjects, or a Bachelor of Science/Arts with Education in two teaching subjects.
