“All vacant positions are advertised and filled competitively. All teachers are given equal opportunities through interviews sessions.” TSC says.

Secondly, performance at the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations for the last three years played a key role in determining whether you would be promoted or not.
