Earlier this year, Teachers Service Commission,TSC, introduced an e-platform for official emails, virtual meetings and remote learning. The e-platform targets all teachers employed by the Commission and those undergoing internship programmes.
The commission directed that heads of institution, and teachers including those serving under internship programme to activate their email accounts on TSC portal. Activated emails will be used for all communications from the Commission.
According to TSC, official email will take the format of the teacher’s name, the last two digits of the TSC number @mwalimu.tsc.go.ke.
