The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is the only commission in Kenya responsible for recruiting, promoting and transferring teachers from one work center to another.
The commission which is currently headed by Dr. Nancy Macharia is also responsible for training teachers with relevant and appropriate training. In the recent directive given by the commission, all teachers are expected to undergo the Teacher Professional Development (TPD) module.
The modules will be for a duration of 30 years where a module will take at least 5 years totaling 6 modules.
However now it is good news for the group of teachers who have been excluded to participate in the training.
According to Dr Nancy Macharia, teachers who are on study leave and have cases of indiscipline will not be allowed to enroll in refresher courses.
The directive has met several hurdles with some education stakeholders being against training.
