Panic as TSC Boss Directs BoM and Private Schools’ Teachers to Update Profiles Before the November 30 Deadline; This is How to Update your TSC Profile Online
The TSC Portal for profile update is a beehive of activities this evening. This follows the latest directive by the TSC Chief Executive Officer, Dr Nancy Macharia that all TSC registered teachers including those working on BOM terms and those employed in private school should update their profiles immediately before the set deadline.
Consequently, panic-stricken teachers are currently rushing tonight to hit the November 30 Deadline since the Commission does not plan to extend the deadline.
Chief Executive Nancy Macharia asked all registered teachers–teaching in public or private schools–to update their profiles.
The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, Nancy Macharia, has cleared the air on which teacher should update their profile ahead of 30th November.
This is after confusion surrounded the exercise where BOM, ECDE, unemployed, and intern teachers were unsure on whether they should take part in the exercise scheduled to end on Tuesday midnight.
Macharia asked all registered teachers–teaching in public or private schools–to update their profiles.
“The Commission has opened the online portal to allow individual teachers to update their details. A link has been developed in the TSC website where all registered teachers are required to access and update their details by November 30,” said Dr. Macharia.
The deadline lapses Wednesday this week. This means that the 501, 760 registered teachers have a few days left to complete the exercise.
There are some 341, 760 teachers working in public schools and 160,000 in private institutions. Macharia said the exercise is crucial, making reference to provisions of the constitution and TSC Act that mandates it to keep all teachers registered.
Registration 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 a detail we capture because we are required to do so every so often,” said Macharia.
She said that sometimes teachers give their details but forget certain particulars. The basic details required by teachers for the exercise include their national identification cards, name, Kenya Revenue Authority numbers, religion, the fate 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.
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.
