TSC Provides Clarification Regarding Teacher Replacement
A nationwide pledge to replace all instructors who departed their employment in the fourth quarter of this year as a result of natural attrition has been made by the Teacher Service Commission (TSC).
More than 1,000 instructors who left the labor market in July and August will be replaced as part of this plan. In order to ensure that students’ education is uninterrupted, TSC intends to swiftly publicize these openings.
In response to persistent rumors about the procedure, the TSC CEO pleaded with instructors to exercise patience.
TSC will alert all teachers via their official social media outlets once the advertisement for these posts is concluded. The committee’s goal is to produce a comprehensive list of open positions, complete with information on the schools where the positions are available and the necessary subject combinations.
It should be noted that, as Macharia, the TSC spokesperson, clarified, successful candidates may be allocated to serve anywhere in the nation, not just in their recruitment area.
On the official website of TSC, all open teaching posts will be listed for simple access and reference during the application process.
Due in major part to the former president Uhuru Kenyatta’s 100% reform initiative, teacher shortages in Kenyan schools have hindered academic advancement and policy execution.
Due to the transition from primary school, there is now an estimated shortage of 58,291 instructors in post-primary institutions and roughly 38,054 teachers in primary schools.
TSC believes that roughly 96,000 additional instructors are needed in Kenyan schools overall.
Additionally, due to their size, higher vocational and technical schools require the addition of roughly 5,000 teachers.
The government is aggressively implementing a strategy to boost teacher enrollment in all public schools and improve working conditions for educators across the country.
