TSC to Recruit 20,0000 Additional Teachers

The government will next week advertise the recruitment of 20,000 teachers across the country, a move that will raise the number of tutors hired by the Kenya Kwanza administration to 56,000 in less than one year.

Teachers Service Commission chairperson Jamleck Muturi made the announcement yesterday during the ongoing Kenya Secondary School Head Teachers Association (Kessha) conference at the Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Hall in Mombasa.

Dr Muturi said Sh4.6 billion has been set aside for recruitment, Sh 1 billion for promotions and Sh1.3 billion for capacity building of the teachers on the competency-based curriculum.

The education sector received the highest share of the national government’s budget for the financial year starting July 1 at Sh628.6 billion, up from Sh544.4 billion.

“TSC got a good amount of money…amounting to Sh323.7 billion …Sh4.6 billion has been set aside for the recruitment of 20,000 teachers on contract. By next week, we will put up an advert so that qualified people can apply for these jobs,” said Dr Muturi.

Secondary school teachers on contract are paid Sh20,000 per month while those deployed to primary schools get Sh15,000. TSC last month announced that the terms of these teachers will change to permanent and pensionable in 2025.

Despite a major staffing shortage in schools, there are over 300,000 teachers on the TSC register who are unemployed.
