In the counties of Garissa, Wajir, and Mandera, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has announced the opening of 1000 teaching positions.
The commission is looking to hire 80 high school instructors and 764 elementary school teachers, according to the advertisement this author saw.
The positions are long-term and pensionable.
To fill openings in the counties of Garissa, Wajir, and Mandera, TSC simultaneously re advertised 386 teaching positions (114 for elementary schools and 272 for secondary schools) on a contractual basis.
“To qualify for recruitment, a candidate should be a Kenyan citizen, be hailing from Garissa, Mandera or Wajir Counties, be teaching under Board of Management in Garissa, Mandera or Wajir Counties,” read part of the notice
The commission requires all interested candidates who are not natives of the three counties to be registered teachers, P1 certificate holders for primary schools, and holders of a minimum of a Diploma in Education for secondary schools.
“Interested and qualified candidates should submit their applications online through the Teachers Service Commission’s website, www.tsc.go.ke under ‘Careers’ or teachersonline.tsc.go.ke not later than 7th July, 2022,” TSC added.
The government has been giving financial resources, according to TSC CEO Nancy Macharia, so that we may hire 5,000 new teachers for our public schools on average each year.
However, there are still 114,581 instructors needed in primary and post-primary institutions.
The TSC director ascribed the shortage in part to the government’s 100% transition program, which aims to guarantee that every pupil who completes primary school is enrolled in secondary school to the fullest extent possible.
