According to the Career Progression Guidelines, the Teachers Service Commission has issued an invitation for competent teachers to apply for a variety of roles.

The Audit Committee, a body that examines financial statements and reports, has also issued an invitation for applications for the positions of chairperson and member.

The commission posted an advertisement in local dailies asking competent individuals to apply for four top principal-Teacher Training College positions.

In addition, 13,713 positions for secondary and primary school principals, deputy principals, senior masters, secondary teachers, head teachers, and deputy head teachers were advertised.

Additionally, the commission said that 1,021 teaching positions in hard-to-staff counties and arid and semi-arid regions would need candidates to serve as principals, deputy principals, head teachers, or deputy head teachers.

Baringo, Garissa, Homa Bay, Isiolo, Kajiado, Kilifi Kitui, Kwale, Lamu, Madera, Marsabit, Narok, Samburu, Taita Taveta, Tana River, Turkana, Wajir, and West Pokot were included as the Asals and Hard-to-Staff counties.

The commission stated that applicants for positions in Asal and Hard-to-Staff counties would need to upload the letter of deployment to the present duty during the application process.

The CPG for teachers was launched by TSC in 2017.

The CPG sets the minimal standards for hiring and promoting teachers.

Additionally, it outlines the new teacher evaluation systems and associated pay scales.

The pattern of service for teachers was replaced by the document.

Before the start of the new school year in January, the commission plans to hire 30,000 instructors, as it has already stated.

The hiring process is anticipated to solve the teacher shortage in primary and secondary schools.

Nationwide, the commission is lacking 116,000 employees. Of the 116,000 students, there are 68,000 fewer in secondary schools.

The hiring of 30,000 instructors is anticipated to enhance the education industry because TSC has been hiring 5,000 teachers annually.

Priority will be given to tutors who have been unemployed the longest, while those already working as interns in secondary schools will be absorbed.

According to TSC’s announcement, candidates who earned their teaching credentials in 2010 or earlier and who have not yet been hired by the commission will receive an automatic 60%.
