The process of hiring, paying, and promoting qualified teachers across the country falls under the purview of the independent institution known as the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
In January, TSC plans to hire around 30,000 teachers. Most of these teachers will go to primary schools to fill the vacuum left by upgrading teachers who were sent to secondary school.
The TSC has already made the scoresheet for the employment exercise available to the public. Some sections of the unemployed teachers will stand to gain handsomely, according to the recently released scoresheet.
The Ministry of Education has been receiving funding from the government to ensure that TSC employs enough staff to help address the teacher shortage that has been affecting most schools.
The Commission, which is now led by Dr. Nancy Macharia as CEO, has worked very hard to make sure that schools have a sufficient number of skilled staff members.
More than 6,000 permanent positions for teachers to serve in primary and secondary schools were promised by TSC in its most recent advertisement.
The teachers on internship contracts are the main beneficiaries of the program. Once more, the TSC awarded them an astounding 30 marks in 2021.In 2022 the awarding of the marks was based years in the contract.

Additionally taken into consideration were the primary school teachers who undertook CBC upgrading. They will be more advantageously situated than the rest.
PTE teachers who are upgrading in various TTCs will also have an edge during the impending TSC mass recruitment. A master’s degree will give its holder a 5-point lead over the opposition. People with disabilities were also featured.
The participants will be assigned to their new workstations once the activity is complete.
