TSC Set to Recruit Additional 12,000 Intern Teachers

The teachers service commission recently advertised 6,000 intern teachers, 4,000 in post primary and 2,000 in primary. The interviews were recently concluded in various counties this month on on 8th and successful candidates were deployed in different schools and they reported to their respective stations on 11th January 2021.

This exercise saw an influx of candidates presenting themselves for interviews in various parts of the country. From the exercise it was observed that it was not impartial as some candidates were denied a chance to face the panelists. some candidates were chased away by the community if they did not belong to those counties something that our team termed as barbaric and recommended that the commission should look into the matter and stop this act as soon as possible. Those who also attended the interview and happened to have tied, the panel directed that to break the tie, they were to look at the teaching practice grade something that disadvantaged many candidates. This is because the norm has always been that once there is a tie, they straight look at the KCSE mean grade something that changed this time round making so many candidates to miss chances in schools they attended interviews.

Despite the fact that TSC employed 6,000 intern teachers both in primary and secondary, the teacher learner ratio is still of high concern as the number of classes have been added in schools to cater for social distancing during this COVID-19 period. Going by what the CEO in the teachers service commission Nancy Macharia said, its clear that they have a plan that is underway of recruiting 8,900 teachers in post primary section and 3,100 teachers in primary in order to solve the crisis that is now witnessed in various schools across the country.

Therefore the teachers service commission is set to release an advert for the vacant positions in various schools that needs to be filled in two weeks time. Therefore those who did not secure vacancies in the previous internship positions, here comes another opportunity to see you score the ten marks awarded during interviews for those who have completed their internship.
