TSC to Hire and Post 35,000 Teachers to Junior Secondary School.

The government will assign 30,550 new teachers to junior secondary schools (JSS) prior to the start of the first school year in January 2023.

Next month, according to Teachers Service Commission (TSC) chief executive officer Dr. Nancy Macharia, they will end the largest teacher recruiting drive since 1997.

She informed Kenyans that they have till Friday, December 23, 2022 to submit their employment applications.

The head of the TSC pledged that the process would be conducted openly and in accordance with the Constitution’s requirements of fairness and meritocracy.

9000 of the new hires will be permanent and eligible for a pension, while the bulk will be teacher interns.

Ms. Macharia announced on Wednesday, following the release of the 2022 KCPE results, that beginning next month, TSC will begin retraining current teachers who will be assigned to junior secondary schools (JSS).

She remarked that this is part of a capacity-building initiative to retrain instructors to manage JSS.

She stated that 60 thousand secondary school teachers have already been trained.

Dr. Macharia stated, “I wish to reassure the country that the retooling of teachers will continue to cover all secondary school teachers and those who will be joining the teaching service during the implementation of CBC.”

In addition, TSC has moved swiftly to draft instructions for staff on how to handle the students who would be entering Grade 7 as a result of President William Ruto’s directive that JSS be housed in primary schools. The instructions will be distributed to interested parties in January 2023.

“Apart from the 30,000 we will be recruiting we shall also be developing guidelines for others we shall be deploying to help in Grade 7,” she said.
