Academic and Professional Requirements for Registration of Teachers

Academic and Professional Requirements for Registration of Teachers.

Pursuant to Article 237 (2) of the Kenya Constitution 2010, the Teachers Service Commission 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).
