Intern teachers stamp their authority as TSC awards 30 marks for the service

Intern teachers have a reason to smile after Teachers Service Commission (TSC) awarded 30 marks up from 10 last year that sets them apart in the upcoming recruitment interviews.

In the new score sheet released to guide recruitment of teachers in July 2021, TSC directed 30 marks to be awarded to applicants who will provide “evidence of internship service”.

Last year TSC failed to automatically confirm intern teachers instead it awarded them ten marks for serving under internship.

This led to some being locked out as they were unable to battle out other candidates who had superior qualities like year of graduation and quality of academic certificates.

This led to most of the interns work for another more year contract after failing to secure employment on permanent and pensionable terms.

However TSC renewed intership contract for the teachers who missed employment for twelve more months.

TSC also reviewed the salaries paid to the interns which saw primary school teachers pocket kshs 15,000 up from kshs 10,000 which they earned in 2019.

Secondary school intern teachers had their salaries raised to kshs 20,000 from kshs 15,000 they used to earn in the previous year.

TSC has so far only advertised employment on permanent and pensionable terms. Last month the Commission made public its plans of recruiting 5,000 teachers on permanent terms and 6,000 others on internship.

In the July 2021 recruitment advert, TSC will employ 5,000 secondary school teachers where 1,000 of these will be for deployment of p1 graduate teachers to high school.

In addition the Commission has also advertised 2,987 vacancies for Primary and 927 vacancies for Secondary Schools to replace teachers who exited service.

TSC directed interested and qualified candidates to submit their applications online through the Commission’s website, www.tsc. go.ke under ‘Careers’ or teacheronline.tsc.go.ke not later than 12th July, 2021.

There have been calls for TSC to automatically confirm intern teachers without subjecting them to further recruitment interviews.

Below is the TSC official recruitment advert for July 2021.
