Current TSC requirements for education (teaching) courses/programmes in Kenya

Are you intending to become a teacher in Kenya? Well. Before you intend to undertake any education related training (like teaching) it is necessary that you know the current requirements by the Teachers Service Commission, TSC.

It will be needless for you to undertake a teacher training course only for you to be rejected by TSC upon graduation. The TSC requirements for teachers keep on being revised from time to time. Be sure to see any future changes in this site.
