According to the TSC act, a teacher can be de-registered for either the following reasons: When he/ she;

  1. Dies
  2. Obtains registration fraudulently
  3. Has been convicted of a sexual offence or an offence against a learner
  4. Has been convicted of a criminal offence which renders the person unfit to be a teacher
  5. Is found unfit to teach following disciplinary proceedings
  6. Suffers from physical or mental illness or infirmity which renders the person incapable of performing the duties of a teacher.

Whenever a teacher is deregistered his/her name will be published in the Kenya Gazette and will not be allowed to offer teaching services until reinstated. The code of conduct for teachers can be downloaded from the official TSC website at: TSCdownloads/Codeofconduct
