How to Update Your TSC Profile Online
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is a statutory body that regulates the teaching profession in Kenya. It is responsible for registering, employing, promoting, and disciplining teachers in the country. One of the requirements for teachers who are registered with TSC is to update their profile online regularly. This helps the commission to have accurate and up-to-date information about the teachers and their qualifications.
Updating your TSC profile online is a simple and straightforward process that can be done from any device with an internet connection. You only need to have your ID number, TSC number, surname, phone number, and some documents to support your academic qualifications.
Here are the steps that you need to follow to update your TSC profile online:
Visit the TSC online portal
The first step is to visit the TSC online portal by using this link [here]. This will take you to the homepage of the portal where you will see various options such as registration status, payslips, wealth declaration, etc. You need to click on the option that says “Update Profile” to proceed.
Fill in your details
The next step is to fill in your details such as ID number, TSC number, surname, and phone number. These are the details that you used when you registered with TSC. Make sure that you enter them correctly and then click on the next page button to continue.
Enter the verification code
The third step is to enter the 4-digit verification code that will be sent by TSC via SMS to your phone number. This is a security measure to ensure that you are the owner of the profile that you are updating. If you do not receive the code within a few minutes, you can request to send it again by clicking on the resend button. Once you receive the code, enter it in the space provided and then click on next.
Edit your basic details
The fourth step is to edit your basic details such as name, date of birth, gender, nationality, etc. These are the details that appear on your ID card and your TSC certificate. You can change them if they are incorrect or outdated. However, you cannot change your ID number or your TSC number as they are unique identifiers for your profile. Click on next once you are done editing your basic details.
Update your academic qualifications
The fifth step is to update your academic qualifications details such as institution name, level, specialization, etc. These are the details that show your educational background and your area of expertise. You can add new qualifications or edit existing ones if they have changed or improved. You also need to upload a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 documents to support your qualifications. These documents include certificates, transcripts, diplomas, degrees, etc. You need to scan them or take clear photos of them and then upload them in PDF or JPG format. The maximum size for each document is 1 MB. Click on save documents after each upload and then click on next.
