New TSC Chair Promises To Implement Post College Training Of Teachers

The just vetted new TSC chairperson, Jamleck Muturi, has promised to ensure that teachers undergo post college training prior to their employment by the teachers’ service commission. Muturi defends the post college training as a move to improve the quality of teaching.

According to Muturi, Teachers who are already in service will not be left behind as teacher proficiency development courses, TPDs, will be arranged for them, which will guide their licensing and renewal of their licenses.

Plans by TSC for post graduate training of teachers and subsequent licensing have been hinted before, even before the retirement of Lydia Nzomo. In what seems like a taking over assignment, Jamleck Muturi seems committed to fulfill all the projects that were initiated by his predecessor.

Muturi said just like other professionals such as lawyers, teachers must also undergo post-graduate training to improve the quality of their services, which currently have a lot of gaps.

Upon completion of the post college training, the teachers will be issued with renewable licenses, without which, they will not teach in any primary school or secondary school in Kenya.

“This is important for us to bring dignity back to the teaching profession,” Muturi said during his vetting occasion.

Muturi holds a Bachelor of Education (Science), a Master in Business Administration, another Master in Science and Agricultural Entomology and a PhD in Agricultural Entomology.

He is currently the Agriculture, Fisheries and Cooperative executive in Embu County.

The vetting was led by Education Committee chair Florence Mutua and also attended by Nominated MP and Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) secretary general Wilson Sossion.

Sossion sought to know how Muturi will handle the issue of delocalisation of teachers spearheaded by CEO Nancy Macharia and outgoing TSC chair Lydia Nzomo.

“I will engage all parties involved and address the contentious issues,” Muturi responded.
