TSC Cautions Principals against locking out applicants in The Ongoing Internship Recruitment
The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has sternly warned school Principals against locking out some applicants in the ongoing recruitment exercise for intern teachers. The commission has advocated for a free and fair exercise, which favors no applicant and discriminates against no applicant.
TSC gave this warning after it emerged that some applicants who had been shortlisted failed to receive invitations to the interviews.
Some school heads have invited less than five applicants for the interviews against a total of more than 20 as per the TSC merit lists released to the regional directors of education. The lists of shortlisted candidates for some schools are also conspicuously missing.
“It has been realized that some school heads, in collaboration with some Directors, have converted the whole process (of recruitment) into personal business. The Commission has received complaints from applicants for not accessing the merit lists for a number of schools,” reads a note from the Commission.
The Commission has ordered the school heads, County and Sub County Directors to make the lists public and ensure that all shortlisted applicants are invited for interviews.
The county selection exercise is scheduled to begin next week.
