Teaching Interns Salary: The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has announced that it will recruit up to 10,000 teaching interns in a bid to bridge a gap in the teaching sector.

The sum to be paid will be subject to statutory deductions. The commission is targeting to deploy 4,300 teachers in primary and 6,000 tutors in Secondary. The qualified candidates are expected to apply for these positions by 23 October, 2019 and should be ready for posting any part of the country.

The successful candidates are also expected to be ready to be posted to any part of the country.

Those applying must have a personal accident insurance to cover personal risks 12- month internship period.

Teachers who will be hired for Secondary schools will pocket a monthly salary of Sh. 15,000  while those in primary schools will earn Sh. 10,000 per month.

The good news is that those who will secure chance as interns are likely to be absorbed on permanent terms depending on performance and funds availability. In July this year, the TSC announced that Sh. 2 billion has been set aside to hire the teachers to supplement the over-stretched staff.

Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia told MPs it would require up to Sh. 2 billion to recruit the intern teachers. “We need these teachers so that they can help us in addressing the shortage on the teaching staff,” Macharia told MPs early this year.

Sources hinted that the contract teachers would be paid about Sh. 14, 000 and Sh. 10, 000 per month for secondary and primary school teachers respectively.

TSC already recruited 5,000 high school teachers at a cost of Sh. 2.5 billion to support the 100 per cent transition. Macharia told MPs that a total of 12, 626 teachers are required to fully actualize the 100 per cent transition. Teaching Interns Salary.
