The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has announced vacancies for Secondary and Primary School teachers in their latest notice.
The Teachers Service Commission Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Nancy Macharia, in an advert published in daily papers, stated that they had vacancies for 4000 teachers for secondary schools and a further 1,000 teachers to primary schools.
100 percent transition
The move, Macharia said, was in response to having more educationists to pillar the government’s 100 percent passage of students from Primary to Secondary School.
“The recruited teachers will serve on a Permanent and Pensionable term of service,” Macharia said.
Additionally, the commission also declared an additional 2,987 vacancies in Primary and 927 in Secondary schools to replace teachers who have since retired from service.
“Qualified and interested candidates should submit their applications online, through the TSC’s website, www.tsc.go.ke under careers. Application should be not later than July 12th, 2021,” the commission said.
To qualify, one needs to be a Kenyan citizen, hold at least a diploma in education, and be a registered member of the Teachers Service Commission. Additionally, the candidate should have a P1 certificate and have a Bachelor’s Degree in Education with two teaching subjects.
The applicants would also need to have gotten at least a C+ or equivalent in their KCSE. They also need to have scored at least C+ or its equivalent in their two teaching subjects.
The announcement comes even as the commission invited the KNUT for a salary negotiation. The meeting will take place on Tuesday at Safari Park. The invitation comes just days after firebrand former Secretary-General Wilson Sossion announced his resignation from his position.
Sossion made his resignation after becoming increasingly isolated at the top after eight years as the Secretary-General.
The new CBA will cover 2021-25 and include a pay rise for the tutors, among other things.
The negotiations will occur with a new Secretary-General, Collins Oyuu, who was elected to the post a day after Sossion’s resignation. Oyuu has openly opposed Sossion’s abrasive leadership style.
