TSC: Why Primary School Replacement Applications are Not Going Through
The teachers service commission, TSC, has explained why those applying for replacement in primary schools are missing the application portal, despite numerous attempts to access it.
“In the January 2022 advertisement on natural attrition, primary school teachers will be selected from the merit list compiled during the recruitment of additional teachers -July 2021,” reads a statement posted by TSC in its fakebook page and twitter handle.
What this means is that TSC already has a database of primary school applicants, from which it will select successful applicants, rather than subjecting the applicants to fresh applications.
Prior to this information, potential applicants unsuccessfully made their applications. Sources from TSC have also revealed that primary school applicants who will be successful might not be interviewed as it has been in the past but rather, they will be called for verification of documents. The previous lists have arranged the teachers in order of merit per county, and therefore selecting the best will not be so hard for the commission.
The Teachers Service Commission mid this month declared 2,945 vacancies to replace teachers exiting service through natural attrition i.e. 2,053 posts for primary schools and 892 posts for secondary schools. The teachers recruited will serve on Permanent and Pensionable terms of service.
To qualify for recruitment, a candidate should meet the following basic requirements:
- i) Be a Kenyan citizen;
- ii) Must be a holder of a P1 certificate in the case of primary schools and a minimum of a diploma in education in the case of secondary schools;
iii) Must be a registered teacher with Teachers Service Commission.
Mode of Application
Interested and qualified candidates should submit their applications online thrugh the Commission’s website, www.tsc.go.ke under ‘Careers’ or teachersonline.tsc.go.ke not later than 1st February, 2022.
Specific information on available vacancies per county/or schools is in the Commission’s website: www.tsc.go.ke.
