In the recent recruitment exercise, TSC managed to employ a total number of 10,000 teachers in a bid to curb teacher shortages in Kenyan schools. The  employment exercise began on July  22nd and came to an end on 28th of the same month.

The commission has already confirmed that the remaining slot of the newly employed teachers will  continue receiving their posting letters from Sub county directors for the whole of this week before reporting to their new stations to start working immediately.

The commission has also reported  that it is working up  on plans to recruit more  teachers plus other interns in December so as to curb the teacher shortage experienced in the country.
