Exam Jobs Kenya: National exams in Kenya are set to begin next month. Subsequently, the national examinations body is hiring teachers who will stand in as centre managers, supervisors and invigilators, security agents and drivers during the exams. The exams will see up to 280,000 contracted professionals. This will be 15, 500 more jobs than were available in the 2019 exams.
During the previous exams, a total of 264,446 officials were hired to administer, manage and mark the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations.
According to a report that appeared in the Daily Nation, teachers who wish to be considered for jobs as centre managers, supervisors, invigilators, examiners (markers) as well as security personnel have until Friday to file their applications online on the Kenya National Examinations Council website.
1,187,517 candidates have been registered to sit the KCPE examination this year while 751,150 registered for the KCSE test. Both are an increase from the 1,088,986 and 699,745 who sat the examinations last year respectively.
“The successful applicants will be deployed by the sub-county directors of education and Teachers Service Commission (TSC) sub-county directors; while the security personnel will be under their respective superiors. Before the examinations begin, their details will be available on the schools portal on the Knec website, which is accessible by head teachers. In January, the TSC directed sub-county directors to identify, nominate and vet examination officials who will be engaged in the exercise,” the report that appeared in the Daily Nation said.
