Kenya’s largest civil service employer, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), has banned teachers from attending seminars and workshops.

That’s the claim made in an article posted to a public Facebook group.

According to the article, in March 2023 the TSC issued a notice to all county directors, principals and secondary teachers banning attendance at seminars and workshops.

The subject line of the message, also posted directly to Facebook, reads: “UNAUTHORISED TEACHER CAPACITY BUILDING WORKSHOPS”.

“It has come to our attention that there are several invitations over social media for teachers to attend capacity building workshops and seminars organised by various publishers, schools, and universities not approved by the Teachers Service Commission to capacity build teachers,” the notice reads in part.
