Newly Recruited Intern Teachers To Receive Posting Letters On This Date

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC), which appoints teachers, has started the process of recruiting freshly appointed intern teachers at various work centers across the country.

 

The panel was constituted to address the acute shortage of teachers in schools. In September 2021, a total of 1995 teacher internship positions were posted, with 1,038 for primary schools and 957 for high schools.

 

According to TSC, the government’s effort to establish a pool of young talent for the country’s labor market was supported by the recruitment of teacher intern teachers.

 

The one-year program seeks to support the efforts of teacher training institutions to equip and maintain the capabilities of tutors integrated into the service.

 

The hired interns will be paid a monthly stipend of Rs 15,000 for primary school students and Rs 20,000 for secondary school students.

 

The commission recently extended the terms of 4,005 interns whose contracts were due to expire in December 2021. It also intends to hire at least 6,000 interns before the end of the year.

 

According to TSC CEO Nancy Makaria, the new staff will help teachers cope with the increased workload as enrollment increases, especially given the government’s policy of 100% transition from primary to secondary school.

 

“It is a commendable government effort to ensure that our public schools have high quality education and teaching,” said Makaria.

 

According to Macharia, the commission will spend Rs 1.2 billion on internship recruitment of 6,000 teachers.

 

TSC is more concerned about the increasing burden imposed by the 100% transition policy, he said, and praised the government for investing additional cash for teacher recruitment.

 

“Since the 100 percent transition program started, the government has allocated TSC funding annually to recruit additional trainers,” said Nancy Macharia.

 

However, out of the 6,000 internship positions, only 2,000 will be allotted to primary schools, the remaining 4,000 to be earmarked for secondary institutions.
