*Full updated list of Bachelor’s degree Teaching Courses Banned By TSC*

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has banned over 20 Bachelor’s degree teaching courses.

 

The Bachelor of Science and Arts Degree Teaching Courses graduates will not be registered by the Teacher Service Commission and this means they will have to seek employment in other sectors.

 

The banned bachelor’s degrees are currently not in the curriculum and hence TSC cannot register teachers whose training is in subjects that are not currently in the curriculum.

 

According to the commission, even those who have done a post-graduate diploma education (PGDE) and/ or enhancement do not qualify for registration by TSC.

 

TSC further explained that such graduates are not eligible for registration because these courses do not provide sufficient subject content and therefore the mastery of the content in two teaching subjects is not adequate as required.

 

Additionally, the TSC guidelines for new teachers clarified that Bachelor of Science or Arts Degree holders with a post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and two teaching subjects qualify for registration.
