Pursuant to Article 237 (2) of the Kenya Constitution 2010, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has a Constitutional mandate to among other functions, register qualified teachers and review the quality of education and training of persons entering the teaching service.

Further, section 23 (2) of the Teachers Service Commission Act, 2012 provides that; “A person shall not engage in the teaching service unless such person is registered as a teacher under the Act”

This requirement applies to both public and private learning institutions. It is, therefore, notified for public information that requirements for registration as a teacher are provided for in Legal Notice No. 50 of 2016 (The Teachers Service Commission Code of Regulations for Teachers (Amendments), 2016)

Basic facts Teachers and Trainee Teachers should follow;

Mathematics will no longer be a mandatory requirement for university admission for students pursuing a diploma or degree in education. This means that in the next KUCCP placement, the D+ requirement in mathematics rule shall not apply

Those who will not teach Mathematics in secondary schools will not be locked out of education training courses for not passing the subject in high school.

Those who will teach nursery schools will not be required to have passed mathematics to gain admission to diploma and degree teaching courses.

KUCCPS is under an advisory to use guidelines presented by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) on academic and professional requirements.
