TSC recruitment updates. The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has declared that it will replace all instructors who quit their employment owing to natural attrition across the country during the fourth quarter of this year.
This program will involve the replacement of approximately 1000 teachers who left the employment in July and August.
TSC intends to advertise these open posts both fresh and replacements as soon as possible in order to avoid disrupting students’ education.
This is after the commission yesterday published recruitment guidelines for primary and secondary Teachers 2023-2024.
TSC’s CEO addressed continued speculations about the process and advised instructors to be patient.
TSC will notify all teachers via their official social media outlets once the advertisement for these posts is finalized.
Replacement List for Available Slots
The commission intends to publish a full list of open posts, including information on the schools where these positions are located and the subject combinations necessary.
As emphasized by Macharia, the TSC spokesperson, successful applicants can serve anywhere in the country, not just in their region of recruitment.
The teacher shortage in Kenyan schools, mostly driven by former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s 100% transformation program, has hampered school advancement and policy implementation.
Currently, there is an estimated shortage of approximately 38,054 teachers in elementary schools and a more severe shortage of around 58,291 instructors in post-primary institutions due to the transition from primary schools.
TSC recruitment updates
Overall, the TSC believes there is a teacher deficit of roughly 96,000 in Kenyan schools.
Furthermore, due to their size, Technical and Vocational Education Training Colleges require around 5,000 additional teachers.
The administration is actively working on a strategy to raise the number of teachers in all public schools and to make the workplace more welcoming to educators across the country.
