In Kenya, a secondary school teacher earns an average of 35,000 shillings per month while a primary school teacher earns an average of 25,000 per month.
Most of these schools strive to provide the best education possible for their students and as a result, they frequently charge annual tuition of at least one million Kenyan shillings.
The majority of them follow the well-known British education system as IGCSE which is more advanced than both KCSE and KCPE.
For you to work as a teacher at one of these institutions, you must have a certain set of skills such as fluency in Chinese, German, French or Italian. A great fitness instructor or music teacher is highly considered at these institutions
According to a report, only 40 percent of the teaching staff at these institutions have a degree from a nearby university or have successfully navigated the Kenyan education system.
If you are hired as a teacher in any of these schools, your starting salary must be at least 100,000 Kenyan shillings regardless of whether you are a recent college graduate.
