Teachers who are on internship have a reason to smile as the commission decided to reward them with a whopping 30 marks in the upcoming interview.
This has come as a regret to those teachers who did not manage to secure internship jobs and those who did not bother to apply for internship interviews.
Both the senior and junior interns will smile all the way to the interview venues as the commission allocated them similar marks. As part of the interview, presenting supporting documents as evidence for internship is highly regarded. Otherwise, you won’t be awarded the 30 marks. The following are the required evidence by the teachers service commission required during the interview eve.
Evidence Required by Senior interns
Senior interns were contracted in December 2019 and started working in 2020 January. After the disruption of their contract by the Covid-19, the commission decided to extend their contract this year by one year which is likely to end in December 2021.
The commission had promised to award them with certificates of internship but till date, they have not received any.
During the interview, they will present the following that will serve as evidence for the award of the 30 marks.
1. Three Payslips for 2020 and three for 2021.
2. A letter from the institution where you were interned.
3. A letter from the County Director of Education detailing when you were contracted.
Evidence required by Junior interns
1. Three payslips for 2020, ( all original)
2. Letter from institution where you were interned
3. Letter from county Director of Education detailing when you were contracted.
The above documents will serve as evidence for internship and anybody who will miss any of the above, will find it as a stumbling block that will hinder him/her from securing a permanent job in this year’s July recruitment.
Therefore, on top of the academic and professional documents, let’s also remember to carry with is the above documents so that we don’t miss on this year’s recruitment.
