TSC Employment Letters 2021
Following successful recruitment and confirmation of documents by the Teachers Service Commission, TSC, sends a letter of employment (Letter of probationary employment) to the newly recruited teacher after a specified period of time.
The letter is sent to the newly recruited teacher through the work station-school where the teacher has been posted to serve on TSC terms- internship or permanent and pensionable.
In the letter the Commission Secretary spells out the entry level of the teacher- grade which varies based on the teachers’ academic credentials such as Secondary School Teacher II for teachers entering the profession as degree holders at high school level.
The letter also indicates the station where the teacher has been posted to and the subjects that he or she should handle are also written on the employment letter.
Employment terms for TSC Teachers
A newly recruited teacher is expected to work on probation for a period of not less than six (6) months.
In some cases the probation period may be extended if the teacher’s performance is unsatisfactory; worse still, the teacher’s employment may be terminated before completion of the probation period.
To be confirmed on permanent terms, the head of institution fills a recommendation form for the teacher that is sent to TSC for approval.
The teacher is expected to proceed to the posted institution as indicated on the employment letter and has a grace period of 30 days from the effective date; as stated on the letter.
This year’s newly Recruited Teachers are required to report on January 4 2021 but not later than 30 days from the effective given date.
