All available teaching vacancies in Kenyan public schools are usually announced by the Teachers Service Commission, TSC whenever the need arises.

The Commission uses formal channels to advertise available teaching positions including the TSC Website: www.tsc.go.ke.

The Commission also uses its official twitter handle and Facebook page to notify interested applicants to grab the job opportunities in time.

TSC usually provides a deadline for application for all available teaching slots across the 47 counties. It is, therefore, necessary that interested candidates adhere to the given deadline as part of compliance with the recruitment guidelines.

 

TSC Cautions Teachers about fake recruitment guidelines

The Teachers Service Commission, TSC in August warned teachers against fake recruitment guidelines that were being circulated on social media. The purported guidelines were used to recruit teachers in the year 2019/2020 but scammers had falsely changed the year to 2020/2021.

 

Taking on the Facebook official account, TSC Head of Corporate Affairs Betty Wababu wrote,

BEWARE OF FAKE TEACHER RECRUITMENT GUIDELINES
This is to draw your attention to teacher recruitment guidelines that are circulating on social media. Those guidelines are for the year 2019/2020 but the year has falsely been changed to 2020/2021. The Commission is yet to release the 2020/2021 recruitment guidelines and we urge teachers to be patient and to shun fake news.”

 

Available TSC recruitment positions/ vacancies for teachers

Currently, there are over 15, 000 available recruitment positions for teachers available at the Commission.

The Commission receives a budgetary allocation from taxpayers’ money every year for all recurrent and new expenditures.

For the past few years, the Commission has been hiring 5, 000 teachers on permanent and pensionable terms to plug the glaring teaching gaps in the education sector.

In December 2019, the Commission also started hiring teachers on internship/ contract terms to fill the teaching gaps.

Now that the Commission has already received the budgetary allocation for this year, it is only a matter of time before the Commission advertises the available teaching vacancies in Kenyan public schools.

TSC Internship news; News on Teacher Interns in Kenya

As earlier stated, the Commission employs qualified teachers on internship terms to fill the glaring teaching gaps in public schools.

This year, the Commission has announced its plans of recruiting at least 10, 000 teacher interns for one year.

Latest TSC Internship vacancies

According to TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia, approximately Kshs 1.2 billion has been set aside to hire TSC teacher interns this year.

All TSC internship vacancies are also made public through formal channels such as the official TSC website, TSC twitter handle, or Facebook page.

TSC Internship Quick Facts

INTERNSHIP: QUICK FACTS

  1. 1. Teachers on internship are likely to serve anywhere in Kenya where their services will be required. However, they are free from the highly dreaded delocalization threat.
  2. All graduates are advised to apply.
  3. TSC has not clarified whether those who shall take up the intern positions will be given priority in mass permanent recruitment. The commission has just confirmed that those who will be on internship may get absorbed on permanent terms based on the availability of funds and their performance.
  4. You do not have to serve as an intern. An internship is optional, therefore you have the option of applying or not.
  5. The schools (as good practices dictate) should support the interns by providing accommodation and food where possible. This will go a long way in motivating them to be effective given the meager pay (stipend)
  6. Certificates will be offered to all interns. This is a plus for teachers especially those aspiring to be promoted for it is a kind gesture towards the Teachers Service Commission.
  7. The payment of salaries for teachers on an internship is prompt. This is a better option compared to being employed on BOM terms where payment of salaries depends on the “principal’s mood.”
  8. An internship is a long-term contract. Once the contract has been signed, it cannot be terminated. This means that the interns MUST serve in a given station for one year, period.
  9. Interns will be paid Kshs 15, 000- secondary and Kshs 10, 000- primary. However, this is subject to statutory deductions.
  10. 4,300 posts are available for primary school and 6, 000 for secondary schools.

Confirmation of Intern teachers on Permanent and Pensionable Terms by TSC

The commission sometimes confirms teachers serving on internship terms and places them on the same payroll as those employed on permanent and pensionable terms based on the availability of funds and teaching vacancies.

Sometimes, the Commission gives intern teachers an upper hand during interviews by awarding them more marks for their service and dedication now that they receive very low salaries.
