Big Blow To Recently Graduated Unemployed Teachers As TSC Gives Internship Priority To 2017 graduates and before

TSC has never failed to disappoint teachers in various occasions. TSC being an indepent body responsible in employing, transferring and firing teachers, it has stamped its authority and doe the unthinkable leaving teachers in pain and agony.

Considering the interviews which are slated this month on 22nd 2021, teachers service commission released a scoresheet that will see the intern teachers, both senior and junior interns secure jobs easily than any other teachers who might have graduated earlier than them.

This is after the commission altered the scheme to favour and confirm these intern teachers in their respective stations by allocating them 30 marks for internship evidence. This move by the commission has been resisted by the teacher who have stayed for long after graduation and did not secure internship positions as they are set to remain jobless till they secure internahip positions.

But on the same note, the commission know how to play its cards well and has moved to award all teachers who graduated in 2017 and before more marks that will favour them secure internship roles in the upcoming internship employment by the commission.

This move by the commission is meant to ensure that, all those teachers who have overstayed out for a long time are given priority so that they also feel appreciated.

This move on the other side will see the recently graduated teachers take a longer time to secure jobs on permanent basis.

It has been ascertained that the education sector is transforming itself in a maneerbthat it needs to work like any other sector in the economy and now internship is mandatory since no single teacher is likely to secure a permanent job by the TSC without going through the internship.

On the same note, the commission has decided to give those who will successfully secure internship positions stipends of Ksh. 25,000. This is after the human right activist Okiya Omtata took the commission head on and advised the commission to treat and pay internship teachers monthly stipends of 25000/= like any other sector in the economy.

Since the activist moved to court over the same, we have seen the commission increase the stipends gradually every time they are employing internship teachers. They started with Ksh. 15,000 then increased them this year to Ksh. 20,000. Those who will secure this internship positions will reap big from the commission’s move to remunerate them with Ksh. 25,000.

Stay tuned as the commission will advertise these positions as from 4th of August 2021.
