TSC To Conduct Biometric Enrolment Of Teachers To Curb Exam Malpractice

TSC Proposes Scrapping Bachelor Of Education Degree

Bachelor of Education degree course (B. Ed) will no longer be offered in Kenyan universities beginning September 2021, as proposed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) now wants Kenyan universities to scrap the B.Ed course as part of reforms intended to usher in the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

Students who wish to pursue a career in teaching will instead take regular ARTS or SCIENCE degrees and a ONE-year POST-GRADUATE diploma in education to qualify for registration as teachers.

The B.Ed degree has existed as the basic training course for teachers in Kenya since 1972.

The teachers’ employer has proposed C+ (plus) as the minimum entry grade for those who want to train as teachers and a minimum of B-(minus) in three teaching subjects.

KNUT and KUPPET have however maintained that the proposal is ill informed and accuses TSC of making decisions single handedly without consulting stake holders.

This sudden decision will rudely shock thousands of teachers who were aspiring to pursue this much coveted profession.

According to TSC, teachers, like other educated elites, should undergo a professional training of at least a year, just like their counter parts in other fields like law.

“for bachelor of education, the course takes four years without any additional professional course,” argues TSC.

This new move has also faced opposition from lecturers and university administrations.
