reasons why teachers do not want another term for Nancy Macharia

TSC Hires new teachers, Awards Teachers During World Teachers’ Day 2022

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has deployed 14,460 newly employed teachers to curb staffing shortage and to replace retired teachers who left due to natural attrition.

TSC Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia confirmed that all the newly employed teachers were recruited in September 2022.

Addressing an audience  at the Kenya School of Government on October 5 during the World Teachers’ Day Celebrations 2022, Macharia said she  celebrates the teachers for continuing to shoulder a bigger burden arising from the increased enrolment occasioned by the noble 100 per cent transition programme in our schools.

“The TSC has posted 14,460 new teachers who were recruited last month arising from the fresh recruitment, and replacement of teachers who left service through natural attrition,” revealed Macharia.

According to Macharia, the normal three-term schools’ academic calendar will resume in January 2023 after two years of compressed studies to make up for time lost following the outbreak of Covid-19 in March 2020.

During the Teachers’ Day celebrations, 246 teachers were recognised for their performance in teaching and effective delivery of the curriculum. Fifty-one (51) of these teachers were awarded.

“We are also honouring 51 teachers who have won national honours over the last two years, 21 of whom were awarded in 2022. As is our tradition, the process of identifying the teachers to be rewarded today has been done in adherence with the TSC Performance Recognition, Reward and Sanction Policy Framework,” said Dr Macharia.

The TSC boss also welcomed President William Ruto’s decision to form a 49-member taskforce (42 members and seven secretariat members) to review the competency-based-curriculum progress.

“I wish to thank the president for appointing eight classroom teachers to the team and also ensuring that the TSC secretariat is well represented in the Working Party. These teachers include Anthony Cheruiyot Sitienei, Margaret W. Chege, Peter Tabichi, Jane Kimiti, Jacinta Ngure, Bernard Kariuki Njoroge, Virginia Wahome and Salome Eyangan,” said Dr Macharia.

“We commend and welcome this bold step to engage Kenyans on the implementation of the CBC in line with the Constitution. I urge all teachers and officials of the teacher associations and unions to make presentations as would be required of the team to ensure that our country’s education sector remains on the right trajectory. The commission is fully prepared to comply with the recommendations of the Working Party as would be directed by the Head of State.”
