The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) of Kenya was formed under Article 237(1)  and (2) of the Kenyan Constitution (2010) as a critical body responsible for  supervising teachers nationally. Among its principal tasks is the registration of competent teachers, which is critical  to sustaining educational quality in both public and private institutions. Individuals interested in becoming teachers typically earn a bachelor’s degree in  either science or the arts, followed by a postgraduate diploma in education (PGDE). However, the PGDE may not be properly aligned with the curriculum and subject  matter in some undergraduate programs.

Applicants with a bachelor’s degree and a specialized PGDE in two teaching subjects are generally eligible for TSC teacher registration through the PGDE route. However, an essential point to note is that candidates with academic backgrounds matching subjects not currently included in the curriculum are not eligible for teacher registration, regardless of their PGDE credentials or other qualifications.

TSC teacher registration through the PGDE route is normally open to applicants  with a bachelor’s degree and a specialized PGDE in two teaching subjects. However, regardless of their PGDE credentials or other qualifications, individuals  with academic backgrounds matching disciplines not currently included in the  curriculum are ineligible for teacher registration.

Now, let’s outline the courses that are excluded from TSC teacher registration due to their subject content misalignment:

1. Natural Resources

2. Meteorology

3. Forestry

4. Animal Husbandry

5. Horticulture

6. Farm Machinery

7. Fisheries

8. Anthropology

9. Sociology

10. Theology/Divinity

11. Journalism

12. Kiswahili and Communication

13. Business Management/Administration

14. Banking and Finance

15. Genomics

16. Actuarial Science

17. Environmental Science

18. Criminology

19. Biotechnology and Agriculture

20. All Engineering-related Courses

21. Industrial Chemistry

22. Biochemistry

23. Hospitality and Tourism

24. Foods, Nutrition, and Dietetics

25. Technology and Applied Biology

26. Microbiology, and more.

The reason for eliminating certain courses is because of their topic matter and  alignment with the required expertise for effective teaching. Ineligible courses frequently lack the broad subject breadth that educators need to  flourish in their teaching professions.
