10,000 out of the 35,550 vacancies advertised by the Teachers Service Commission are to be filled by January 2023 on permanent and pensionable terms whereas 25,550 posts will be filled on internship terms.
The advert which is already open to the public has invited all qualified and duly registered unemployed teachers to tender their application once the website dubbed TSC recruitment portal is activated to receive applications.
Unlike in previous years where the Commission received manual applications and teachers were obliged to traverse counties in order to drop their application letters, all TSC recruitment applications will be done online.
Moreover, up to July 2022, online TSC recruitment application limited a teacher to only three schools in each category.
The ongoing December 2022-January 2023 TSC mass recruitment is seeking to increase the number of application per each category to five. This therefore means that teachers can apply for a total of 10 schools, five on internship and five on permanent and pensionable terms.
If the old criteria is applied the two categories-internship and permanent and pensionable will have a teacher apply for a maximum of six schools.
If the new development is adopted then a single teacher will apply ten schools in the two open categories I.e the intern and permanent and pensionable.
Besides, applicants will be open to apply for vacancies all over the country and not limited to one’s own county.
Interviews for post primary and junior secondary categories shall be conducted by January 2023 before schools reopen. Specific TSC interview dates and venues to be communicated later by the specific sub county timelines.
