TSC Discontinues the Primary Teachers Certificate Training Program.

The Primary Teachers Certificate Training Course, often known as P1, has been discontinued by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) as part of a continuous reform of the laws governing the teaching profession in Kenya.

One of the proposed regulations sets the admission criteria for teacher training, with the diploma level currently serving as the beginning point.

As per the recently released recommendations, TSC recommends that an educator should receive at least a C plain overall, with a minimum of D+ in Mathematics and a C minus in English.

“To discuss the requirements for registration, we convened the caucus of all deans of universities that offer teaching education last week. When the education sector unites, we want to address Parliament, said Nancy Macharia, CEO of TSC.

The TSC has also proposed a number of measures to improve the level of professionalism in the field, such as procedures for deregistration or disciplinary actions—especially in relation to sexual misbehavior and other similar offenses.

In addition, the committee wants to create and formalize ongoing professional development for educators.

The modifications are being implemented at a time when many instructors are in line for promotions.

More than 30,000 teachers will be promoted by TSC, spanning chief principals to senior instructors.

“We are in the midst of promoting 36 teachers in this fiscal year, and we have been granted Ksh1 billion for promotions in the fiscal year 24/45. We promoted 14,000 teachers in the fiscal year 2023/2024. Thus, she underlined, “the problem of teachers’ stagnation will be resolved fairly soon.”

Concerning several of the proposed amendments to the laws, stakeholders have sharply criticized TSC, accusing it of overreaching and granting itself powers that it does not possess.

The presidential working party’s proposals on education reforms and the constitution’s requirements, according to the TSC, are what are driving the reforms in the field.
