Nursery school teachers to register with TSC
It will now be mandatory for all nursery schools teachers to register with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) before being allowed to teach.
In the TSC code of regulations for teachers (Amendment) 2016, submitted to Parliament on Thursday, the nursery teachers must be holders of certificate in early childhood Education.
It states that a person will also be eligible to register as an ECD teacher if he has good moral character.
Teachers with qualification from outside Kenya will also be registered as teachers provided the institution they studied in are recognized.
“Where a person holds a certificate from a foreign learning institution accredited by recognized accreditation body, the commission may register such a person as a teacher,” states the regulations.
However, the certificate must be equated by the Kenya National Examination Council.
Male teachers will also enjoy 14 days paternity leave in the new regulations.
