APPROVED CHANGES TO THE TSC ADVERTISED POSTS.

Meanwhile, some schools have been allowed to change the advertised subject combinations to suit the current staff demands. These changes have been occasioned by: The Commission erroneously advertising same posts twice and in some cases the schools missing teachers in some subjects. For an advertised subject combination to be changed, the Principal of the affected school must make a formal application to the TSC County Director; who in turns approves the changes.
