How to Apply for a TSC Number Online, What You’ll Need, and How to Check Your Status

Before any educated teacher can be assigned duties in any school in Kenya, whether private or public, the TSC Act of 2012 mandates that they be registered with the Teachers Service Commission.

To support the TSC Act, the Ministry of Education issued a directive to all county commissioners in late 2016 directing them to ensure that only qualified teachers enter schools beginning in 2017. A qualified teacher is one who has received a certificate of registration from the Teacher Service Commission.

There’s no need to be concerned if you’re a qualified teacher who lacks a TSC number. I’ll walk you through the process of obtaining one.

It is important to know that TSC does not recognize any manual applications. This implies that everything is done through the internet.
