TSC Ends Teacher Promotion Application Nightmare.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has chosen to extend the application deadline for the positions that have been advertised.
Due to high internet traffic earlier this week, applying for these positions presented substantial challenges.
This was mostly brought on by an IT problem that was brought on by the large number of visitors. The TSC has decided to extend the application deadline till September 15th after speaking with teachers’ unions.
Unfortunately, this ongoing technical issue prevents access to the TSC portal. Due to this problem, teachers were worried that they might not be able to apply for the 36,275 listed positions.
The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) and the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) have both urged the TSC to extend the application deadlines. The ICT director has additionally asked for a prolongation so that more teachers can access the website.
Teachers have thought about switching to a manual application approach in reaction to the slow website.
The Teachers Service Commission is urged to extend the application deadlines by Omboko Milemba, the chair of KUPPET and the member of parliament for Emuhaya. Milemba emphasizes the importance of increasing the number of teaching positions.
Teachers complain that the TSC is to blame for their careers’ stagnation. Positions like Senior Master IV in regular secondary schools, Senior Teacher II in normal primary schools,
Headteachers and Deputy Headteachers in regular primary schools, as well as Secondary Teachers in regular schools, are in high demand, as seen by the posted job openings. This suggests that basic public schools are lacking in administrators.
By examining the credentials needed for each position through the linked TSC link, interested teachers can apply for these roles.
