Macharia Gives Clarification on Teachers Required To Update Online Profiles Ahead Of 30th November Deadline
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Chief Executive Office Nancy Macharia has given clarifications concerning the teachers who should update their online teacher profiles ahead of the 30th November 2021 deadline.
Earlier, there were confusions concerning the exercise since BOM teachers, ECDE teachers, unemployed teachers and intern teachers were unsure on whether they on whether to participate in the exercise ending on the midnight of Tuesday or not.
In July 2021, TSC directed all registered teachers to update their profile. Through a 28th July 2021 circular, Dr. Reuben Nthamburi, the TSC Director Quality Assurance and Standards, ordered teachers to update their profile by 30th November 2021 to help the Commission maintain an updated register of teachers.
“It has been established that the teachers’ details in the Register is not updated. To this end, the Commission has opened the online register 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 30 November 2021,” said Reuben Nthamburi.

This information was however misinterpreted by a section of teachers who thought that only TSC employed teachers should update profiles.
On Friday TSC CEO, Nancy Macharia emphasized all registered teachers whether in public or private schools should update their profiles. What this implies is that any teacher whether under BOM, ECDE, unemployed, or intern should participate in the profile update exercise as long as he/she has a TSC number.
There are some 341,760 teachers working in public schools and 160,000 in private institutions, who are all expected to update their profiles, alongside those employed by the commission or serving under internship.
Macharia said the exercise is crucial, making reference to provisions of the constitution and TSC Act that mandates it to keep all teachers register.
The Commission is in charge of maintaining the register of all teachers and issue them with the Certificate of Registration. 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 record 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, fate of birth, gender, mobile phone numbers and nationality.
Also needed are details on home county, sub county, division, zone, constituency, impairment type, permanent postal address, post code, permanent town, current postal address, post code and town.
“Once the basic details have been updated, one will be required to upload documents and certificates that prove academic qualifications,” said Macharia.

Are teachers expecting a salary increment next month?
HELLO CHRIS. thanks for your concern and much gratitude for visiting elimupedia.com. Please note that there is no salary increment next year since increments occur as per a CBA. The CBA we have currently does not factor salary increment. However, there will be leave allowance which will be earned at the end of January. Additionally, teachers who are due next year and have not reached the bar within their job groups will also get an annual increment.
