TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia warns teachers with low entry grades wont be registered

Teacher service commission TSC has warned teachers with low grades will not be registered.

Kenya National Qualifications Authority (KNQA) had proposed that students seeking to study for a diploma in education would have a C plain or C- in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam, down from the previous C+. Its increasingly clear that TSC did not welcome this announcement warmly.

“Should persons with lower qualifications opt to train as teachers, they face the danger of not being registered by the commission on account of non-compliance with the Commission’s standards,” said TSC Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia in a letter

In order to renew hopes of many students who were ready to enroll for teacher training, Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed has invited TSC, KNQA and Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) for a crisis meeting on Thursday October 4, 2018 in Nairobi.

According to TSC CEO, lowering of entry grades to teacher training college will compromise the quality of education.

Though tsc has no mandate to decide the entry grade for teacher training, Dr. Macharia has warned that lowering of entry grade will adversely affect the future economy

“The commission takes a serious view of the attempt by the authority to arrogate itself the powers to review the standards of education and training of persons entering the teaching service; and proposing to lower the minimum entry requirements. Lowering of minimum entry standards for teachers is a serious affront to national development and may be a recipe for failed future economy,” reads the letter.

However in order to ensure sustainability of teacher training in the country, which is under threat from reforms being undertaken in the technical vocational education training (TVET) sector those seeking a certificate in education (popularly known as P1), needed to have a D+, down from a C plain.
