Online TSC Transfer Applications Procedure

Online TSC Transfer Applications Procedure 

Kenya’s Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has made significant progress in  digitizing its services to increase productivity and convenience for teachers  across the country.

The Online Teacher Transfer Application method is one notable digital innovation  that was established in February 2021.

At the conclusion of the year, the Appointment Board normally considers transfer  requests. However, the Commission still has the authority to transfer teachers in accordance  with particular standards.

A teacher must submit a transfer application  through  their institution’s head, which  may be obtained at TSC offices or the website,  in  order to be considered for a  transfer.

The completed application forms must subsequently be delivered to TSC or its  representatives by the institution’s administrator. Primary school teacher transfers within a county are handled by the TSC County  Director, whereas transfers beyond the county, such as those to tertiary schools,  are handled by TSC headquarters.

Transfers are subject to vacancy availability and replacements, requests for  transfers are immediately acknowledged, and decisions from the Appointment  Board .
