TSC will no longer Recruit P1 teachers
The teachers service commission (TSC) will no longer Recruit P1 teachers for the Competence Based Curriculum (CBC).
The Commission has told the truth and indicated the plans to get rid of the PTE certificate that have been in the past been a the base requirement to become a teacher .
In a new plan tagged “Framework on Entry Requirements in the Teaching Service” paper that came out, the above information was shared with the public.
The teachers employer has said that there are options to that. This will now be replaced by a diploma that follows the newly implemented competency-based curriculum (CBC).
The teachers employed has recently tightened up on issues related to the teaching profession. The move has been taken to ensure that new teachers are qualified and smart enough to lead the education business.
For the CBC Plan, TSC stops recruitment P1 teachers.
TSC has set the minimum requirements for all teachers working with children in grades 1 through 6.
According to the commission to ensure working with these children the teacher must have a Diploma in Primary Teacher Education (DPTE).
The teachers service commission TSC currently sets a diploma in education as the minimum qualification for anyone who wants to teach at any level. According to the panel, this will improve the quality of schooling in the country.
Then teachers will be certified and able to teach children in grades 1-3 and 4-6, with a focus on foreign and native languages.
Since the commission is switching to competency-based education, teachers will get 10 more points than the other teachers to show that they have a CBC upgrade certificate.
The commission will stop hiring P1 teachers completely in 2024. For the teachers who haven’t updated yet , they will be able to do so now.
