TSC Announces 14,460 Teaching jobs To fill Teething Staffing Gaps
TSC Online Recruitment 2022; The Teachers Service Commission TSC has honoured its pledge to unemployed teachers especially teachers serving on internship contract terms and advertised 14,460 teaching posts to be filled in July/August 2022.
A total of 5000 teaching posts are a special preserve of teachers currently serving on internship terms who will soon be absorbed on permanent and pensionable terms especially now that the Commission awards them a whooping 20 marks giving them an edge when it comes to competing for limited TSC teaching vacancies.
The July 2022 TSC Recruitment will definitely attract thousands of applicants seeking TSC internship and mass Recruitment Vacancies owing to the hard economic times ushered by the covid 19 pandemic and the skyrocketing living standards.
The most recent TSC recruitment conducted last year saw over three hundred thousand applicants apply for the limited TSC Recruitment Vacancies.
The good news however is that the Commission will only absorb teachers with immeasurable working experience especially those currently serving on internship terms who have borne the blunt of harsh economic times by working for a pittance, a stipend not exceeding Kshs 20,000.
TSC To Release new Scoresheet for July 2022 Mass Recruitment
As per the norm, the Commission will definitely release a new score sheet for the upcoming July/August 2022 recruitment.
According to the latest TSC recruitment Scoresheet at our disposal, intern teachers still have an upper hand as opposed to their counterparts who have never been employed on contract terms.
Degree holders on the other hand are still disadvantaged since their mark is the same as diploma holders. Following the numerous comaints raised by applicants in the previous TSC recruitment exercise, the Commission promised to review it’s recruitment Scoresheet this year to favour degree holders.
According to the response given by the Commission on the equalization of marks for length of stay for both degree and diploma holders, the Commission had tied the marks to clear the backlog of diploma teacher graduates who has tarmacked for over five years without bagging TSC teaching jobs.
