Full List of Bachelor’s Degree Teaching Courses Banned By TSC, Avoid Them

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has banned over 20 Bachelor of Science and Arts Degree Teaching Courses on the grounds they do not provide sufficient subject content.

The commission made it clear that it will not register graduates who undertook training in those courses.

The said courses are currently not in the curriculum, and hence TSC cannot register teachers whose training is in subjects that are not in the 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”

“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,” read part of the guidelines for registration of new teachers
