Teaching vacancies have become very competitive nowadays. Better your grades in college and also during teaching practice as this will give you an edge over your competitors.

The Teacher Service Commission TSC has continued to release deployment letters for practicing P1 teachers to teach in secondary school.

In the month of October, TSC released more letters for PTE teachers who graduated with a Bachelor’s in Education to start teaching their new subject areas. Some teachers have started receiving their letters of promotion after waiting for a long time.

Despite teachers meeting, the most requirements for deployment, TSC has emphasized teachers meeting the minimum units required for one to be eligible to teach in high school.

TSC has also maintained that over 300,000 unemployed teachers should go through the ongoing upgrading program in order to be CBC compliant, revealing that the Commission will not automatically absorb them even when they complete the nine monthly upgrading program.

TSC Director of Quality Assurance and Standards (QAS) Dr. Reuben Nthamburi has revealed that the Commission has been receiving cases of teachers who are posted to schools and are unable to teach the CBC classes hence the need for unemployed teachers going for the upgrading training program.

“As a Commission as indicated, when we post a teacher now who is not CBC compliant, we have a lot of cases that are coming up because the teacher is not able to teach Grade 1 to 5 because is not CBC compliant. So, what has been decided is that these teachers who are out there need to go through this training,” said Dr. Nthamburi.

For you to be considered for employment as a primary teacher in Kenya, TSC has come up with new requirements.

One should be a Kenyan citizen, hold a PTE Certificate (P1 certificate) from KNEC, Or a Bachelor of Education degree (Primary education) from a university recognized by the government of Kenya (with 2 teaching subjects.)

You must be registered with the TSC and have a TSC number according to the specifications of the TSC Act Cap 212, Section 23(1) at the time of application

If you lack the physical TSC registration certificate (perhaps you’re yet to receive it), make sure that you attach a printout of your TSC number application (as made online) showing the verified status.

This is taken to be evidence that you have met the basic requirements to be registered as a primary teacher in Kenya.
