TSC Releases Score sheet To Be Used In Intern Recruitment
20,000 positions for teacher interns have been made available by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). There are 2,000 places altogether for primary schools and 18,000 slots for junior secondary schools according to the most recent notification.
This comes amid concern from educators and current interns who had hoped to be hired permanently and eligible for pensions by the commission.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) announced 20,000 teaching posts on Wednesday, July 5, for junior secondary schools (18,000 openings) and primary schools (2,000 positions).
According to the commission’s job description, the interns will be spread out throughout 47 counties, with 758 intern teachers being allocated to Kitui County.
The score sheet that will be used to direct the hiring process is provided below:
Teachers in primary schools would be eligible for a monthly salary of Ksh15,000. Teachers in junior secondary schools would earn Ksh20,000.
During the fiscal year 2023–2024, the internship will last 12 months.
It seeks to place unemployed registered instructors in educational settings where they can receive coaching, mentoring, and exposure to actual teaching scenarios in order to enhance their teaching skills.
How to Apply
All applicants were advised by the commission that no manual submission would be taken into account.
Some requirements for JSS interns include the ones listed below:
1. The person must be a Kenyan citizen.
2. A diploma in education with a minimum mean grade of C+ (plus) and C+ (plus) in two teaching topics, or the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KSCE) or its equivalent, is necessary.
3. One must be a registered instructor with the Teachers Service Commission.
But the requirements for interns in primary education are as follows:
1. A Kenyan citizen is required.
It’s necessary to have a PI certificate holder.
3. The proprietor must be TSC-registered
All selected candidates will be required to have Personal Accident Insurance for the duration of the internship to cover personal risks.
The National Identity Card or passport, the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) card, the Kenya Revenue Authority Personal Identification Number (KRA PIN), and two coloured passport-size pictures are a few of the required papers.
If relevant, candidates should also submit a copy of the National Council for Persons with Disabilities (NCPWD).
TSC emphasised that the application process was open and fair and warned prospective applicants not to fall for con artists’ ploys.
It was also stated by the Teachers Service Commission, “Any fraudulent activity should be reported to the nearest TSC office, Teachers Service Commission headquarters, or the nearest police station.”
The current interns will shortly learn if they will serve until 2025 or if the commission will accept them into permanent positions with pension benefits.
