KEY TAKEAWAYS


TSC has lined up 844 permanent positions for schools in the north. Through affirmative action, the jobs are earmarked for teachers from the region.

This is a re-advertisement after the commission failed to get enough teachers in a previous recruitment drive. Primary schools will get 764 teachers while 80 will be posted to secondary institutions.


The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, seeks to employ 14,460 teachers, the highest number in recent times as it grapples with fixing the acute shortage of tutors in public primary and secondary schools.

Employing, compensating, and promoting qualified teachers across the country are the responsibilities of the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).

TSC has declared 5,000 teaching vacancies to support the government policy on 100 percent transition of learners from primary to secondary schools and to address the existing teacher shortage.

TSC also advertised 8,230 vacancies to replace teachers exiting service through natural attrition. Of the advertised vacancies 6,539 posts for primary schools and 1,691 posts for secondary schools.

According to TSC, 3,972 of the recruited teachers will be posted to different secondary schools to assist in the 100 percent transition policy which was initiated by President Uhuru Kenyatta. 1,000 teachers will be posted to primary institutions while teacher training colleges will get 28 tutors.

The majority of these educators will work in primary schools to fill the gap left by teachers who were transferred to secondary institutions.
