The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is planning to register all teachers afresh in a countrywide process that kicks off next week. This comes after it emerged that thousands of teachers on the payroll cannot be accounted for.

Documents seen by the Sunday Standard indicate that all teachers in the country will undergo fresh head count from school level.

“Identification and data collection from the teachers shall be done at the zonal level with the smallest centre of data collection being the school,” reads the TSC document.

The TSC concept note says the pilot phase of the biometric registration will be done between May 11 and 15 across seven counties, before it is rolled out across the country. The plans for the process however start next week.

The exercise will cover all public primary, secondary and tertiary institutions, Curriculum Support Officers and special programs in all the 47 counties.

This means teachers who are currently earning salaries without proper documentation will be sent home. And those who irregularly acquired TSC registration numbers without following due process will also be identified and de-listed. This can also give crucial information for prosecution by th Teachers Service Commission.
