The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has released new requirements for registration of Secondary School Teachers. The Commission wants the Bachelor of Education Science and Arts degrees (currently offered at universities) be scrapped.

In preparation for the full roll out of the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) TSC proposes that the teachers be trained in Bachelor of Science and Arts areas for three years. They will then undertake a post graduate diploma in education for one year.

Further, TSC wants a Diploma in Secondary Education training course be introduced which will cater for defined learning areas/Subjects required in Junior and Senior Secondary level which have shortages.

Additionally, all the 8-4-4 and CBC students must now undertake first the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science Courses for a period 3 years majoring on the key subjects and thereafter undertake a Postgraduate Diploma in Education for a period of one year for teaching at Junior and Senior school and SNE .

There shall also be a Postgraduate Diploma in Teacher Education to cater for Teacher Education learning areas. This will be for preparing Teacher Educators who will be training the pre-service Teachers at the Teacher training colleges.

Categories of teachers to teach at Secondary Schools

The following categories of teachers will now be allowed to teach in secondary schools; under the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC):

  • Diploma in Secondary Teacher Education (Junior (7-9) and Senior (10-12) Secondary Level)
  • BA/BSC with Postgraduate Diploma in Education (Junior and Senior Secondary, SNE)
  • BA/BSC with Postgraduate Diploma in Teacher Education (Teacher Educator)
  • Diploma in Special Needs Teacher Education (Specialized Curriculum areas-  Autism, Deaf, blind, multiple disabilities and Multiple cerebral palsy for foundation, intermediate, Pre-vocational and vocational levels)
  • Diploma in Technical Teacher Education (Appropriate Technical subjects in Junior and Senior Secondary).

Post Training Certificate

Additionally, the TSC will require teachers to have the Post Training Certificate for In- Service Teachers not currently Employed by TSC.

This training will be undertaken by teachers who have completed ECDE , PTE ,DTE BED ; DIP ED and SNE training courses.

It will be offered within a duration of 9 Months During School Holidays (Distance learning elements during school time and online mode). Teachers will also do micro teaching during this training.
