TSC boss noted that the plan was to ensure that the teaching fraternity emulates other esteemed careers such as Law and Engineering – in keeping up with trends in the profession.

 

 

Dr.Macharia noted that negotiating for teachers had become a daunting task over the years as tutors were often deemed as grouped generally based on the area of specialialization.

 

 

Macharia noted that with the new training programme, the teaching profession would be accorded respect.These News comes as TSC had also proposed to scrap off the Bachelor of Education degree as a requirement to join the workforce.

 

 

To effect this, teachers would pursue a Bachelor of Arts course or a Bachelor of Science for a period of three years and later enrol for a postgraduate course for a period of one year in order to acquire a TSC number.

 

 

“To professionalise the teaching service and improve the quality of education, the commission needs to review entry grades to the teaching service and advice the national government.

 

 

“The move will raise the standards of the teaching profession and attract more quality grades,” TSC Quality Assurance Director Reuben Nthamburi stated
