I think we can all agree that the TSC online services are Godsent.
Today, the TSC registration process for new teachers is only a few clicks away via your smartphone.
It is no longer a 3 or 4 hours journey in a Matatu carrying 145,888 passengers.
Also, gone are days when teachers made meandering queues. All for simple services such making inquiries.
How awesome is that?
The purpose of this article is not to wear pompoms and start cheering the teachers’ commission.
