The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has banned over 20 Bachelor of Science and Arts Degree Teaching Courses. Graduates who undertook training in the courses and were hoping to be registered by TSC will now have to look for employment opportunities elsewhere.

The Commission will not be registering teachers whose training is in subjects that are currently not in the curriculum.

“Applicants for registration whose training is in subjects that are currently NOT in the curriculum do not qualify irrespective of having undertaken a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and/ or Enhancement.” Says the Commission via the current Registration Guidelines for new teachers

“Those who have undertaken a PGDE with these courses are NOT eligible for registration as teachers. These courses do not provide sufficient subject content and therefore the mastery of the content in two teaching subjects is not adequate as required.” Adds the guidelines.

TSC however clarifies that ‘Bachelor of Science or Arts Degree holders with a post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and two teaching subjects qualify for registration’.
