 TSC Sets New Criteria For Awarding Teachers Marks During Interviews

The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has started releasing merit lists for teachers who are seeking to replace more than 3,914 primary and secondary school teachers who exited services owing to natural attrition.

TSC is priming itself to employ over 14,000 teachers in the month of July. Most of these teachers will go to primary schools to fill the void left by upgrading teachers who were deployed to secondary schools. Below is a roadmap ahead of the recruitment exercise.

The Government through the Ministry of Education headed by professor George Magoha has been allocating money to ensure that TSC recruits enough staff to help solve the teacher challenge that has been facing most schools

The Commission led by Dr. Nancy Macharia as the current Chief Executive Officer (CEO) has also worked hard to see schools well equipped with relevant manpower.

In the recent advertisement, TSC declared that it will advertise positions to be filled by over 6,000teachers to serve on permanent terms in both primary and secondary schools which has now been officially Advertised.
