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 certificate, and the requirements required for you to be approved and registered by TSC.
If you supply all the documents required and you meet all the minimum requirements, you can get your TSC number approved within 30 days.
TSC normally publishes the list of registered and approved teachers annually on its website. TSC does not accept paper applications, so everything is done online nowadays.
Depending on your education level, you need to have attained at least the following grades in KCSE in order to be registered as a TSC teacher:
Certificate holders: C Plain in KCSE
Diploma graduates: C+ (plus) at KCSE
Degree graduates: 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.
