The Teachers Service Commission has announced 20,000 job vacancies for intern teachers in Public Primary and Junior Secondary Schools.
In an advertisement, 18,000 teachers are needed in Junior Secondary Schools and 2,000 in Public Primary Schools, to support the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum.
“The Teacher Internship Programme is a one-year programme meant to equip and sustain competencies of persons entering the teaching service,” noted the Commission.
“The Internship period will be for 12 months.”
On successful completion of the internship programme, teacher interns will be awarded a certificate.
The deadline for application is on July 10, 2023.
Teacher interns attached to primary schools will be eligible for a monthly stipend of Sh15,000, while those attached to JSS will be eligible for a monthly stipend of Sh20,000.
“The stipend will be paid subject to statutory deductions, where applicable,” the commission noted.
To qualify as a JSS intern teacher, a candidate must be a Kenyan citizen and a registered teacher with TSC.
He or She must also be a holder of at least a diploma in education with a minimum mean grade of C+ and C+ in two teaching subjects in KCSE or its equivalent.
Persons with disabilities (PWDs) and teachers from TVET institutions have also been encouraged to apply.
To qualify as a Public Primary Teacher, a candidate must be a holder of a PI certificate, be a Kenyan citizen and be registered with TSC.
“Teachers with upgrade diplomas in primary teacher education (CBC) will have an added advantage,” the Commission noted.
According to TSC, the applicant should be unemployed and not previously employed by the Commission as an intern or on permanent and pensionable terms.
Candidates will be required to present original academic and professional certificates and manual applications will not be considered.
In addition, successful candidates will be required to have personal accident insurance to cover personal risks during the internship period.
“Selection of candidates will strictly be on merit and based on the number of vacancies per county. Successful candidates must not fill more than one offer of internship,” the Commission noted.
“Successful candidates will be posted to serve to any primary or junior secondary school in the county where they were interviewed or in any part of the country where the vacancy exists.”
Further, successful candidates for JSS shall be required to teach various learning areas under Junior Secondary Curriculum.
Candidates have been advised to carry a copy of the teacher registration certificate or print-out from the TSC online portal as evidence of registration as a teacher.
A copy of the National Council for Persons with Disability (NCPWD) card where applicable, a copy of the National Identity Card (ID) or Passport, two colour passport size photographs, a copy of the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) card and a copy of Kenya Revenue Authority Personal Identification Number (KRA PIN).
“Interested and qualified candidates should submit their applications online through the Commission’s website, www.tsc.go.ke under careers or teachersonline.tsc.go.ke,” the commission noted.
