Blow As TSC Bans 26 Bachelor Of Science And Arts Degree Teaching Courses

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has proclaimed that it will not register teachers who train in subjects that are not in their current curriculum.

 

“Applicants for registration whose training is in subjects that are currently NOT in the curriculum do not qualify irrespective of having undertaken a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and/or Enhancement” read part of the guidelines for registration of new teachers.

 

“Those who have undertaken a PGDE with these courses are NOT eligible for registration as teachers. These courses do not provide sufficient subject content and therefore the mastery of the content in two teaching subjects is not adequate as required,” reads the guidelines.

 

However, the commission explains that those with ‘Bachelor of Science or Arts Degree, with a post-Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and 2 teaching subjects are qualified for registration.
