Internship Score sheet for August 2021 Recruitment: Secondary School Teachers Recruitment

After revealing a controversial score sheet for 2021 permanent employment, Teachers Service Commission has yet again come with 2021 internship employment score sheet. In the new score sheet, TSC opt to revert to its traditional way of awarding marks to the candidates.


In the intern score sheet, applicants in Second class upper will now score 5 marks more than the one in lower class, unlike in the permanent employment score sheet where both would have scored the same marks.


However, Diploma and Degree candidates from same year of graduation and same academic qualifications will continue scoring same marks going into Internship employment.


The coming exercise will see about 6,000 teachers employed as intern for both primary and secondary schools. The qualified candidates will be required to apply for the vacancies online and wait for shortlisting. After the shortlisting exercise, the commission will then invite candidates for interviews.


Teachers Service Commission and Boards of Management are required to conduct the selection exercise for the advertised vacancies in their institutions.


The Selection Panel will be expected to exercise the highest degree of transparency and accountability, as stipulated in the Public Officers Ethics Act, and TSC Code of Conduct and Ethics 2015. The Head of Institution is required to induct the panel members on the relevant sections of the Act and CORT 2015 before the commencement of the selection exercise.


The TSC County Director MUST ensure that the recruitment process is done in strict adherence to the laid down protocols by the Ministry of Health on containment of COVID- 19 pandemic.


All applicants must be registered teachers as per Section 23 (1) of the Teachers Service Commission Act, 2012. Applicants who are not registered do not qualify to be recruited.
