Change of plan as TSC reverts the old scoresheet of awarding teachers in the recently advertised vacancies based on one’s qualifications

In the new recruitment guidelines released by TSC, qualified teachers who have evidence of internship will stand high chances of securing TSC jobs.

However, the commission has reduced marks for suitable applicants who will provide evidence for internship. Previously, applicants who produced evidence for internship secured 30 marks. Surprisingly, the commission has now reduced those marks to 15.

It is important to note that teachers who are serving in internship programme will have headstart over others. This will automatically give them an upper hand.

Here is how internship marks will be awarded:

Evidence of internship service

Served for three (3) years – 15 marks

Served for two (2) years – 10 marks

Served for (1) year -5 marks

MAXIMUM SCORE – 15 marks

Another factor that will increase chances of one to get employed is the quality of certificate. However, tutors teaching subjects combinations like Physics/Chemistry, Biology/Agriculture and Chemistry/Biology are easily absorbed by TSC since they are few.

Applicants must present original and legible photocopies of the following documents:-

National identification cards;

National Council of Persons with Disability (NCPWD) Card (where applicable);

KCPE Certificates;

KCSE Certificates (include first attempt certificate if repeated exams);

Diploma/Degree Certificates and official transcripts;

Primary and Secondary Schools leaving certificates.

NB: Provisional transcript shall not be accepted.

Where names on the submitted documents differ, the applicant will be required to submit a sworn affidavit.
