TSC Announces Over 35,000 Job Vacancies; How to Apply
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has released a statement announcing 35,550 teaching vacancies in primary and secondary schools.
The nationwide teacher shortage will be alleviated, according to the announcement made public on Friday, December 9.
“TSC invites applications from qualified candidates to fill the vacancies to support the implementation of Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC),” read part of the notice.
There were 9,000 secondary school teaching positions available on permanent and pensionable terms of service, and 1,000 primary school teaching positions available on the same terms of service.
Along with these openings, TSC also announced a total of 21,550 internship positions for teachers in elementary and primary schools and 4,000 positions for junior secondary schools.
The declaration made by TSC came shortly after the government made a commitment to hire an additional 30,000 teachers for the school year beginning in 2023.
To ensure that there are enough teachers in the country who are compliant with CBC, the Ministry of Education, the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), and the TSC will work on modalities of fast-tracking retooling, according to a statement released by the State House Spokesperson, Hussein Mohamed.
