LATEST TSC HARDSHIP AREAS FULL LIST; COUNTIES LISTED AS HARDSHIP AREAS BY THE TEACHERS SERVICE COMMISSION, TSC
TSC FULL LIST OF HARDSHIP AREAS PER COUNTY AND REGION
Change is an inevitable force and as times change, there are new factors such as insecurity which play a key role in determining areas listed by the Teachers Service Commission as hardship areas.
They are described as TSC hardship areas due to the rather strenuous working conditions that TSC employees such as teachers, education officers, quality assurance officers, county, and regional education directors are subjected to.
Some of the tough working conditions that they have to put up with include insecurity for instance in some parts of the North Eastern and Coastal regions, poor infrastructure, and poor social amenities.
Due to these deplorable working conditions, the TSC is fair enough for the Commission has seen to it that employees deployed to hardship areas earn more pay due to the potential risk they are exposed to.
They, therefore, have extra packages such as risk allowance and transport allowance which gives them an upper hand when it comes to their monthly salaries compared to their counterparts working in “normal” areas.
