Teachers’ Training Colleges (TTC) across the country are in limbo following a conflict between TSC and Ministry of Education.
TTCs are unsure of which grade to use in admitting new students as the Ministry and TSC released conflicting directives.
Several private TTCs across the country have already started admitting students with grade D as advised by Kenya National Qualifications Authority (KNQA).
However, their public counterparts are only admitting students with grade C while waiting further direction from the ministry.
However, private TTCs risk losing their money if TSC wins the war as the trainees will not be allowed to sit for examinations.
TTC exams are usually adminstered by the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC).
Additionally, TSC has hinted that it will not register teachers with lower qualifications after their graduation insisting that the minimum entry grade is C.
KNQA in June this year recommended that the minimum admission requirement for a diploma course is grade C minus while that of a certificate course is grade D.
