TSC is a government body mandated to register, deploy, and discipline teachers in Kenyan public schools. In this guide, I will take you step by step on how to apply for a TSC number and TSC certificate, and the requirements required before getting approved by the TSC.
If you supply all the documents required and you meet all the minimum requirements, you could get your TSC number approved within 30 days.
The TSC normally publishes the list of registered and approved teachers annually on their website.
TSC does not accept paper applications, so everything is done online nowadays.
Depending on your education level, you will need to have at least the following grades in KCSE:
Certificate: C Plain in KCSE
Diploma: C+ (plus) at KCSE
Degree: C+ (plus) at KCSE
Primary teachers require a minimum of P1 before applying for the TSC number or certificate.
On the other hand, secondary school teachers are required to have a diploma or degree in education with two teaching subjects. You must have scored at least C+ in the two subjects and a mean grade of C+ in KCSE.
