P1 Teachers Who Took The Upgrading Diploma To Be Favoured In The Upcoming Teacher Recruitment
The Primary school teachers who heeded the TSC’S call for Diploma in primary teacher education (DIPTE) will successfully graduate with the diploma will be favored during the next and subsequent recruitment interviews by Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
Currently, approximately 229,000 teachers are pursuing DIPTE in various accredited Teacher Training Colleges (TTC) across the country.
TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia, expressed her happiness the cohort, who will soon graduate, during the release of KCSE results. Macharia confirmed that the upon graduation, the freshly graduated DIPTE cohort will help in implementing the new curriculum.
A good number of Commission officials have joined Nancy Macharia in praising the P1 teachers who opted to upgrade their teaching skills and are soon graduating with DIPTE this year.
Last week, TSC Coast Regional Director in charge of Quality Assurance and Standards, Mr.David Nganyi, assured the trainee teachers who are undergoing the program that they will be offered first hand employment upon successful graduation.
Nganyi who was speaking during the Kenya Teachers Colleges Sports Association (KTCA) Coast Region Athletics Championship held at Shanzu TTC, said there is no way TSC could employ the unskilled when there are skilled ones out there.
“We are eagerly waiting for you, as soon as you graduate, we will directly absorb you so long as you have passed all the units,” said Nganyi.
During the end of last year,TSC Director for Quality Assurance and Standards,Dr.Reuben Nthamburi also hinted on giving first priority to teachers with CBC skills.
Nthamburi urged those teachers who have not enrolled for the upgrade programme to do so to avoid future regrets.
