Possible 2020 TSC Internship Interview Questions

Non-Interns May Not Be Invited For July 2022 TSC Recruitment Interviews

The Teacher service commission (TSC) is preparing to recruit an additional 5,000 new teachers and replace 8,230 other teachers who quit service due to natural attrition.

Judging from the July 2022 merit lists released by the TSC and are already in circulation, most applicants who appear in the top five in each school have served as intern teachers, either at senior level or junior level.

In the advertised vacancies 6,539 posts were for primary schools and 1,691 posts were for secondary schools.

Without a doubt, the intern teachers are will be favoured during the interviews and might clinch most of the vacancies.

It’s unfortunate for applicants who didn’t secure internship contract in the latest changes on TSC score sheet. This category of teachers will not be considered during invitation of applicants for the interviews if the latest Score sheet is adopted.

This should however not discourage applicants since luck also has a role to play bearing that the slots are so many. Should you be invited, don’t fail to attend any interview.

According to earlier information from the teachers’ commission, only top five applicants will be invited by schools in every slot advertised, yet the first five in most slots are teachers who have served as interns. Case study from previous employment clearly show that no teacher without this marks will come any close to top five.  This move has completely isolated these group of teachers without the internship marks.

However, some subject combinations will not rely on internship. Among them are; Phyc-chem, Bio- Agric, Home science, Computer.

Numerous changes have been made in this year’s marking scheme. Maximum internship marks has been slashed from 30 to 15 marks.

This will only serve those who have worked for 3 years.
