Schools have been cautioned by the Teachers Service Commission against hiring teachers who are not registered by the body.

No teacher who has been deregistered should engage in teaching or conduct training in co-curricular activities in schools.

TSC chief executive Nancy Macharia ordered schools to have all teachers' details displayed at the principals offices all the time.

Display

She further said that private schools will be monitored at least twice every term to ensure they abide by TSC's guidelines.

All teachers will be expected to have their TSC numbers and subjects they are teaching displayed in the staff rooms also.

Mrs Macharia stated that county directors will be expected to forward the names of schools which will not comply with the directive to TSC's head of quality assurance and standards.

Deregistration

Last year TSC deregistered teachers for misconduct and cautioned against the employment of the teachers in any public or private school. 

The teachers were accused of deserting duty, having sexual relations with their students – which makes up the majority of the cases – insubordination and negligence among others.

A teacher whose name has been removed from the register shall cease to be a teacher for purposes of this Act with effect from the date of such removal,” Ms Macharia had stated.

When TSC deregisters teachers their names are published in the Kenya Gazette over various issues which range from desertion of duty and having sexual relationships with students to insubordination and negligence.
