How to update TSC Teacher profile  

Teachers who are registered with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) must update their profiles through the TSC online portal.

TSC on updating profiles

A circular issued by TSC on 28th July 2021 indicates that it has been established that some teachers’ details are not available in the TSC register.  

TSC has given all teachers in both public and private practice up to Tuesday to update their profiles.

The teachers’ four-month window will expire this week.

In a circular, Chief Executive Nancy Macharia requested that all registered teachers, whether in public or private schools, update their profiles.

“The Commission has opened the online portal to allow individual teachers to update their details. A link has been developed in the TSC website where all registered teachers are required to access and update their details by November 30,” said Dr. Macharia.

Details about the home county, sub-county, division, zone, constituency, impairment type, permanent postal address, postcode, permanent town, current postal address, postcode, and town are required.

“Once the basic details have been updated, one will be required to upload documents and certificates that prove academic qualifications,” said Macharia.

The deadline expires on Tuesday. This means that there are only a few days for the 501,760 registered teachers to complete the exercise.

There are 341 760 public school teachers and 160,000 private school teachers.

Macharia stressed the importance of the exercise, citing provisions in the constitution and the TSC Act that require the registration of all teachers.

The Commission is in charge of keeping track of all teachers and issuing Certificates of Registration to them.

TSC has the mandate of registering teachers under Article 237 of the constitution.

“It is also under Regulation 29 that we must continuously update teacher records and this is the register. So that if we have left out a detail we capture because we are required to do so ever so often,” said Macharia.

She stated that teachers sometimes provide details but forget to include certain details.

Teachers must provide basic information such as their national identification cards, name, and Kenya Revenue Authority numbers.

Details on religion, date of birth, gender, mobile phone numbers, and nationality will also be required for the exercise.

Section 23 of the TSC Act also states that the registration of teachers must include the qualifications and any other information prescribed by the Commission at the time the registration is granted.

5. Click Verify 

6. You will be required to upload all your certificates 

7. For the newly employed teachers, you will find that the certificates are already uploaded to the system. 

According to Macharia, the update of teachers’ profiles is distinct from the biometric registration of teachers, which will target all tutors on its payroll.

“This is a different exercise from the biometric which was successfully piloted and will be rolled out nationally in March next year. We shall finally merge the two,” said Macharia.

She stated that the biometric registration is about collecting teachers’ biodata, for example, TSC will know if the teacher has returned to school to further their education.

“We shall also know if there is anything about the teacher that we do not know about. For example, in the register, we do not know how many children a teacher has and this biometric process will inform us better,” said Macharia.

Registration Errors 

If you get this error “wrong code. Please try again” or “internal server error occurred then go back to the same page.” Click send code again and make sure that you have received the 4-digit verification code sent via SMS to the phone number you used to register for the TSC account.
