TSC Latest Update On Recruitment Of Teachers, Requirements, How To Apply And Deadline

by Business Watch Team

Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is mandated by the Government of Kenya to employ primary and secondary school teachers.

In all learning institutions, the commission employs thousands of qualified teachers. The body recently announced it will be recruiting more teachers soon, so all qualified persons should keep up with the latest TSC recruitment news and procedures

The newly announced TSC recruitment has sparked much interest. Thousands of job openings were announced by the government. All qualified candidates should be familiar with the recruitment procedure, and they should take the required steps to get ready

TSC Recruitment 2023

In October 2022, President William Ruto announced the government will hire at least 30,000 teachers beginning January 2023. The move is aimed at closing the prevailing teacher shortage in primary and secondary schools

The current shortage is partly attributed to natural attrition. The soon-to-be TSC replacement process will bridge the gap and improve the quality of education in the country. Recruitment will be done by the TSC

Although the president has alerted qualified persons to be ready for TSC employment in 2023, the body is yet to announce open vacancies. This means that the recruitment portal is still closed.

The number of TSC vacancies per county also remains unknown. Once the body is ready, it will call for applications and open the application portal to the public
