  • Filling in a transfer  application form through the head of institution. Transfer forms are available at TSC offices countrywide or can be downloaded from TSC website.


  • Completed application forms should be sent to the TSC or its agents by the head of institution.


  • Transfers for primary school teachers within the county will be handled by the TSC County Director.


  • Transfers outside the county will be handled by the TSC headquarters. Applications for transfer for tertiary institutions are processed at the TSC headquarters.

TSC transfer rules

As was already indicated, the terms and regulations for TSC Kenya transfers are outlined in the Code of Regulation.




Teachers who are currently employed by the Commission on their first appointment or posting are not eligible to ask for a transfer until they have worked at the institution for five years.




However, the Teachers Service Commission may take into account applications from these teachers if and only if there are compelling medical (confirmed by a qualified physician) or other grounds.


The Code of Regulations states that a teacher who starts the transfer procedure is not eligible for the TSC transfer allowance. 


However, in cases where the Commission is in charge of moving a teacher from one sub-county to another, it will pay the transfer
