Approved Enhancement course for teachers and educators

If you really want to boost your chances of being hired by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), you should enrol in a teacher and educator enhancement course in Kenya. 

The course is designed for teachers who have previously completed one teaching subject and are now required to complete two teaching subjects.

If you really want to boost your chances of being hired by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), you should enrol in a teacher and educator enhancement course in Kenya. 

The course is designed for teachers who have previously completed one teaching subject and are now required to complete two teaching subjects.

The Ministry of Education has repeatedly emphasized the importance of teachers and educators attending enhancement courses at approved institutions. 

An enhancement certificate is one of the requirements that a teacher must meet in order to be hired permanently by TSC, and it provides a competitive advantage during TSC interviews. 

Teachers and educators can benefit from a professional development course in Kenya. 

Enhancement courses require teachers to return to the university and enrol in units offered under the subject. 

The course is appropriate for graduate teachers who have previously completed one teaching subject and are now required to complete two teaching subjects.

TSC considers graduate teachers who improve the content of their second teaching subject for employment.

For example, if you majored in Education Arts and chose Mathematics and Business as your subjects, you can enhance either Chemistry or Physics. 

After completing the enhancement course, you will be able to teach Mathematics and Physics or Mathematics and Chemistry. 

Requirements for teacher education courses 

There are some prerequisites for enhancement courses that you must meet. You must have received a C+ on average in your KCSE exams. 

You must also have a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from a recognized university.

To enhance a subject, you must have at least a C+ in the two teaching subjects in which you wish to specialize. In addition, you must have completed the subject up to form 4 level. 

The best part is that those who want to improve in subjects like agriculture, business studies, home science, and computer science can do so even if they did not study these subjects in form 4 level.

If you want to enhance in Business Studies and Computer, you must have at least a C+ in Mathematics in KCSE. 

A minimum of C+ in Biology in KCSE is required for Agriculture and Home Science course enhancement. 

The minimum number of course units that must be enhanced is nine, which includes teaching methods for each of the two subjects that a teacher is authorized to teach. 

Failure to complete the enhancement course modules on time is a violation of the TSC code of conduct.

Where To Enrol For Enhancement Courses

If you meet the above requirements, you must enrol in a recognized university to pursue the teacher enhancement course. 

The Ministry of Education issued a circular in March 2020 outlining the approved enhancement courses, their duration, and the institutions that offer them. 

The course is available at the following institutions.

  • Kenyatta University (KU) 
  • Mount Kenya University
  •  KEMI 
  • Riara University 

The teacher receives an enhancement certificate upon completion of the course, which is renewable every five years. 

After completing all of the course modules, the teacher is eligible for re-certification and TSC advancement.

Enhancement courses at Kenyatta University

Kenyatta University is one of the institutions that offer this course. It provides enhancement programs for teachers who began with one teaching subject but are now required by TSC to have two teaching subjects. 

You can apply for the enhancement course by going to the university’s website. 

A teacher enhancement course in Kenya is a step in the right direction for a teacher to easily secure employment. 

It improves your chances of getting hired whether you are a recent graduate or have been in the industry for many years. 

What are you still waiting for? Enrol in the course right away to advance your teaching career.
