TSC Moves its Registry Online

The Teachers Service Commission has now digitized its registry bringing an end to delays and malpractice associated with fetching of physical files.

The Commission has been in the process of taking all of its operations online for some time. The Commission has now revealed that as from the 1st of November 2021, the release of physical files from the Teacher Registry for any action on them will cease as all operations are going to be done electronically.

The Director of Administrative Services Ibrahim Mumin revealed that the Commission is only remaining with files of teachers who are exiting the service via retiring, transfer of services, death of resignation which will be considered to be released on a case by case basis. However, his office or the Deputy Director’s will be charged with approving Records Management.

Besides the aforementioned files, those under the process of litigation upon request by the Directorate of Legal, Labor and Industrial Relations, teachers on new appointments and those of those that have not been added to the payroll or on internship also fall under this category.

In April, TSC revealed that they had 224,075 teachers in 22,821 public primary schools; 117,120 teachers in 9,043 secondary schools and Teacher Training Colleges. These teachers serve 8,071,662 pupils and 2,761,769 students in public secondary schools and colleges.

TSC advertised 1,038 internship vacancies for primary and secondary schools. 1,038 slots were allocated for primary schools and 957 for secondary schools. More than 300,000 teachers are unemployed and competed for the vacancies.

The Commission’s Secretariat has been blamed for years over allegations of corruption. It has been alleged that the TSC secretariat hide files of desperate teachers and then demand kickbacks in order to avail them of services like transfers, promotions, underpayment claims, appointment on payroll and payment of various allowances among other things.

The use of physical files for TSC services has caused delays over many years affecting the efficiency of operations at the Commission with records of more than 330,000 teachers being handled.

In July this year, the Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) revealed a group of officials who had been extorting teachers millions with lies that they could help them get employed with the Commission.
