TSC Changes Deadline For Job Applications, Reviews December 2022 Recruitment Roadmap
Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has now been forced to revise its roadmap for the recruitment of teachers and interns who are expected to report in January 2023 after an outcry from its field officers.
This is as a result of pressure from its field officers in particular TSC Sub-County Directors and after a media house ran a story where the officers decried a congested timeline that would see them have squeezed time with their families during this festive season.
The officers now have a reason to smile after the Commission reviewed it’s initially released roadmap which had given them 4 days of Christmas holiday and increased them to 5.
“The Teachers Service Commission has reviewed the roadmap for the recruitment of teachers and teacher interns. The deadline for submission of applications has been extended from December 16 to 23,” a tweet on the commissions account read.
Further, the Commission has also allowed them to fully focus on administration and supervision of the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE)which is expected to end on December 23,2022.
Initially, TSC had indicated that the officers were supposed to generate the applicant’s lists and carry out shortlisting by the Sub-County Selection Panel and invitation for interviews from December 19,2022 to December 23,2022; a process that has now been shifted to start from December 29,2022 to January 5, 2023.
In the reviewed roadmap, Submission of Lists of Shortlisted Candidates to the TSC Regional Director by County Director will be on January 6,2023 for onward submission to TSC headquarters by the TSC Regional Director on January 10,2022.
Thereafter there will be publishing of lists of shortlisted candidates on January 13,2023; followed by County recruitment process which will kick off on January 13,2023 to January 23,2023.
After completion of the county recruitment process; vetting at County Level, handling of complaints, signing of internship agreements, offer of internship letters and signing of offer of employment letters will follow, a process that will take 6 days from January 24,2023 to January 31,2023.
The recruited teachers are then expected to report to their respective schools on February 1,2023 with TSC directing that the officers will have 4 days to submit the recruitment documents to the headquarters from February 6,2023 to February 9,2023.
However, the submission of the reporting status of the newly employed teachers by TSC County Directors remains unchanged which is by February 28,2023.
