TSC Clarifies On Teachers Who Must Update Their Profile

TSC Boss Dr.Macharia Clarifies On Teachers Who Must Update Their Profile Before 30th November 2021 Deadline.*

Following a circular dated 28th July 2021, the TSC Director Quality Assurance and Standards Dr. Nthamburi directed all teachers to update their profile by 30th November 2021 to help the Commission maintain an updated register of teachers.

Dr. Nthamburi said that a  link is already developed in the TSC website where all registered teachers are required to access and update their details by 30 November 2021.

Tsc boss Dr. Nancy Macharia emphasized All registered teachers whether in public or private schools should update their profiles.

Following this update, therefore, means that any teacher whether BOM, ECDE, unemployed, or intern should update profile as long as he/she has a TSC number.


The records with the commission indicate that  341,760 teachers are working in public schools and 160,000 in private institutions.

Dr. Macharia said the exercise is crucial, making reference to provisions of the constitution and TSC Act that mandates it to keep all teachers registered.

The teacher's employment body is in charge of maintaining the register of all teachers and issuing them with the Certificate of Registration.

The registration process of teachers is a mandate accorded to TSC through Article 237 of the constitution.

“It is also under Regulation 29 that we must continuously update teacher records and this is the register so that if we have left out any details, we capture because we are required to do so ever so often,” said Macharia.

Macharia also added that sometimes teachers give their details but forget certain particulars.

The most important details required by teachers for the exercise include their national identification cards, name, Kenya Revenue Authority numbers, religion, date of birth, gender, mobile phone numbers, and nationality.

Also needed are details on the home county, sub-county, division, zone, constituency, impairment type, permanent postal address, postcode, permanent town, current postal address, postcode, and town.

“After the basic details have been updated, one will be required to upload documents and certificates that prove academic qualifications,” said Macharia.

As per Section 23 of the TSC Act also stipulates that the registration of teachers must contain the qualifications and such other particulars as may from time be prescribed by the Commission, in respect of which the registration is granted.

Macharia said the update of teachers’ profiles is a different exercise from the biometric registration of teachers but the two will be merged.
