TSC Interns: The Teachers Service Commission is set to hire 5,000 teachers on permanent and pensionable basis. The commission is also set to hire 10,000 intern teachers starting this July.

This is after National Assembly’s Budget and Appropriation committee failed to grant the the commission’s request for Sh. 15.4 billion to recruit 25,000 tutors. Instead, the commission granted the TSC Sh. 2 billion for the recruitment of 5,000 teachers on permanent and pensionable terms.

This means that unless the National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani increases the TSC budgetary request, the hiring will kick off in July.

In its strategic plan, 2019-2023, the teachers’ commission had indicated that it requires Sh. 82 billion to recruit teachers over the next five years.
