TSC News Today: TSC To Hire 75,000 Teachers on P&P And 36,000 Interns

 

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is seeking funds to recruit 75,000 teachers by 2025 to help ease the curriculum burden in both primary and secondary schools as well as plug existing staff shortage.

In addition the Commission plans to hire 36,000 intern teachers for both primary and secondary schools over the same period.

These are some of the proposals contained in the Education Sector Report: Medium Term Expenditure Framework 2022/2023 – 2024/2025 which was sent to parliament for consideration ahead of the 2022 budget allocation.

The Commission’s bold strategy seeks to enhance resource management, professional development, equity and access to quality teaching standards over the next three years from well-staffed schools with better facilities virtually share their classes with other institutions.

TSC Chief Executive Nancy Macharia said the prolonged disruption of learning due to the Covid-19 pandemic brought to the fore the need to continuously empower teachers to respond to emerging trends and challenges.

During Covid 19, most schools were unable to access online lessons due to inadequate facilities and poor internet connectivity.

Macharia said the commission has now accelerated its online teaching and learning, citing the Secondary Education Quality Improvement Project.

The programme is in piloting stage targeting 12 schools in 10 counties.

Under the pilot programme, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and English will be live streamed from the host schools.

During the two-month pilot phase, live streaming will focus on sciences, mathematics and English lessons, delivered from two principal schools.

Alliance Girls High School and Machakos Boys, well-staffed institutions with better facilities, will have their teachers share lessons with students in satellite schools across the 10 counties.

The two national schools have been paired with the satellite schools drawn from Isiolo, Kilifi, Bomet, Taita Taveta, Makueni and Kisii.

Macharia said the lessons will be interactive and collaborative through video and sound and learners will have a whole learning experience.

The programme targets Form Two students. Kenya Secondary School Heads Association chairman Kahi Indimuli termed the project a game changer.

β€œIt provides an opportunity to share knowledge, equipment and apparatus. It is a shared opportunity in learning and teaching approaches,” said Indimuli.

He, however, said schools will require high speed internet connectivity. But even as TSC launched the online lessons programme, teachers unions maintained quality teaching also requires proper staffing.

β€œCounties are not the same. Schools are not the same. We have gaps. Technology cannot replace teachers,” said Knut boss Collins Oyuu.
