The rate of unemployment in Kenya is extremely high.

You can stand a better chance of being recruited as a teacher if you choose a marketable combination of subjects to specialize in.

One way of choosing the best subject combination approved by TSC is by doing research on the vacancies that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and Boards of Management (BOM) are having difficulties filling.

Some of the subjects that are facing a big shortage of teachers at the secondary school level in Kenya as per data gotten from recent TSC recruitment are as follows:

Drawing and Design
Home Science
Art and Design
Agriculture
Physics
Chemistry
Music
Computer Studies


Other subjects that experience teachers shortages include:

Bachelor of education science Course structure
Of course, the Bed. (Science) program is tailored to make you a professionally qualified teacher who can competently handle STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects in Kenyan Secondary Schools as well as middle-level colleges.

Now, in universities like Moi, students must take chemistry and mathematics, plus any other content subjects (for example, physics, botany/zoology etc.) in the first year.

You drop one of the content units and take up your two specialized subjects, one being a major and the remaining a minor from the second year.

You are supposed to get the skills required to teach the major subject up to the KCSE (form 4) level so you’ll spend most of the time covering the content for this subject.

The rest of the time is dedicated to the minor subject in your preferred bachelor of education science subject combination – you teach this up to the form 2 level- meaning that the content to be covered is relatively less.

You normally complete it by the time the third year comes to a close. However, the professional methodology is given equal emphasis for both the major and minor subjects.

Requirements to do a bachelor of education (science).
Of course, before you even think about the best combination in teaching, you need to have met the minimum entry requirements for the degree in science education program.

Here is a summary of the requirements to pursue a Bachelor of Education (Science) degree at leading Universities like Egerton.

KCSE mean grade of C+ with the following minimum grades for each subject:
C+ in Mathematics
C+ in one of the following:
(i) Physics or
(ii) Chemistry or
(iii) Biology or
(iv) Geography
OR
Have a B- in one of:
– Physical Sciences
– Biological sciences


Alternatively, you may be granted admission if you hold a Diploma or an S1 certificate in science(Education) from recognized Institutions.
Note that it’s a must for you to have scored a C+ in each of your selected teaching subjects to qualify.
