TSC to close recruitment portal by midnight today (July 2021 advert)

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will close recruitment portal by today July 12th midnight according to its recruitment roadmap.

TSC had advertised recruitment vacancies for primary and secondary schools last month.

In the advert TSC advertised a total of 3,914 replacements for primary and secondary schools to replace teachers who exited service.

TSC said 2,987 posts will go to primary schools while 927 will go to secondary schools.

TSC also advertised 5,000 teaching posts for secondary schools, however 1,000 posts will go to practicing P1 teachers who have bachelors degree with C+ in KCSE and C+ in the two teaching subjects.

Successful P1 teacher applicants will be deployed to teach in high school.

The deployed P1 teachers will start at Job Grade C2 and later move to Job Grade C3 after serving for three years as guided by Career Progression Guidelines (CPG).

TSC directed 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.

TSC county directors have also started to issue the date and venues for recruitment interviews.

Kakamega county is the latest county to release interview dates and venues for its thirteen sub counties.

The recruitment has not gone without complains. This is after a section complained that TSC has discriminated them by releasing a score sheet that favors only a section of teachers.

Some applicants faulted TSC for awarding intern teachers 30 marks saying it wasn’t their fault not to work under intership cause the chances were limited.

In the 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”.

Graduated teachers faulted TSC for putting them in the same basket with Diploma teachers.

Some Graduate teachers who scored Second Class Upper Division said TSC was wrong to award them same marks with those who scored Second Class Lower Division.

However TSC insisted the score sheet it released is final and will be used to guide the upcoming recruitment interviews.
