TSC Internship Contract Renewal 2021/2022; How many Times Can TSC Intern Teachers Renew Their Contract? Commission Provides Answers, Check out the Fate of Internship Teachers 2021-2022 Below
TSC Internship is a newly introduced Pre-service teacher training aimed at addressing the ever widening teacher: learner ratio.
In 2020, the Teachers Service Commission, TSC renewed the TSC Internship Contract for teacher interns recruited in December 2019. What these teacher interns are unaware of however is the maximum number of times that they can refresh their TSC Internship Contract.
The good news is that TSC has announced the fate of Internship teachers whose contract will end this year December both for senior and junior interns. This is after the teachers service Commission announced 6674 vacant positions in December last year which saw registered teachers fill those vacant positions.
What was funny is that some senior interns were barred from submitting their applications through the teachers service Commission portal. This posed a challenge and left senior interns wondering what will be their next move. What’s now mind blowing the senior interns teachers is what will happen when their contract comes to an end after it was extended for another one year.
From reliable sources, it’s clear that the senior interns and other intern teachers will not get a direct ticket into TSC permanent and Pensionable jobs without going through the due process. This has been done to bring equity and equality amongst all the graduates since there are intern teachers who might have graduated recently and secured an internship job and another graduate did not secure an internship position but graduated earlier. They argued that if they confirm these intern teachers it will disadvantage those who have stayed out for a long time.
Therefore, all the intern teachers who are in various institutions should understand that the only thing they can get as an added advantage is the ten marks awarded to them after completion of the contract. Otherwise, they will have to go through the due process of interviews.
Further information from reliable sources says that those who are in internship can renew their contract up to a maximum of five years, that’s if one would not have secured a TSC permanent job.
