TSC to Start Retraining 30,000 Newly Recruited Teachers
Commission chief executive Nancy Macharia said that they are determined to retool all teachers who have been be hired during the ongoing recruitment exercise.
The teachers will be retooled within their subcounty levels through a cascade model. The retooling process has been scheduled for this month, once all the grade seven learners settle in schools, and the commission gets done with the deployment of the newly recruited teachers.
She said the government is set to train 30,550 teachers in addition to the 60,000 teachers who were trained last year.
‘‘All the teachers who will be recruited in the ongoing exercise will be put on a retooling regime that will ensure they adequately attend to our junior secondary school learners,’’ Macharia said and added that the 2,376 master trainers have been prepared.
The exercise started early this month and will run till April this year.
‘‘Already, we have trained 2,376 master trainers ahead of the retooling exercise of all the new teachers and others currently teaching in secondary schools. We target to train 90,000 teachers between now and April 2023,’’ Macharia said.
She also assured teachers of the commission’s intention to better their health service as it is a key component for them to deliver.
“On Teachers Medical Health Scheme, I wish to inform teachers that we have enhanced their benefits under the medical insurance scheme and made it better for our teachers,’’ Macharia said.
