TSC Permanent Teachers Vacancies: Interviews for the recruitment of over 11,000 teachers countrywide will start next week.
During the interviews, teachers serving under the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) internship program have been favoured in the new hiring of permanent teachers that is set to take place this September.
According to the TSC, the interns will get a head start over other applicants. The interns will be awarded an automatic 10 per cent mark.
The guideline sheet will also favour teachers who have been unemployed for long. For example, those who graduated in 2012 or before will have a score of 50 per cent in the length of stay section, while last year’s graduates will get a score of 15 per cent.
The selection and interviews will take place between September 16 and 22 while complaints will be handled from September 23 to 25.
The teachers serving under the internship programme get a monthly pay of Sh. 10,000 for a primary school and Sh. 15,000 for secondary school. “TSC county directors must ensure heads of institutions confirm online registration status of the applicants to avoid engaging unregistered and deregistered teachers,” the guidelines signed by TSC chief executive Nancy Macharia read.
Primary and secondary school teachers have already been recalled back to work. According to a resumption program from the Ministry of Education, teachers are supposed to report to school early to make arrangements for candidates who were due to sit for their national examinations. It is expected that the candidates will be the first cohort to resume learning in October.
“Two to three weeks after candidates return to school, the other learners would be recalled for a crash learning programme that will see second term work covered before end of December. Third term would be covered between January and March, with examinations done in April next year,” says a report on the reopening of learning institutions in Kenya.
