The Ministry of education in conjunction with the Teachers Service Commission has declared a plan to employ  4,523 teachers to succeed or fill the deficit left after the teachers exited the service through natural attrition like retirement. The last recruitment the TSC did apart from contracting teachers was in 2014.

TSC Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia said 3,922 trained tutors will be assigned to primary schools next year while 601 will go to post-primary.The suitable candidates must be listed from the TSC database and must have a number, He or she should be at least 45 years old and below. During the interviews, the candidates must present their original professional and academic certificates to the interviewing panel.


Mrs Macharia said, “Applicants who were contracted as relief teachers should attach a copy of the contract letter and a report casualty return.” Those who have an interest in being selected as primary school teachers must be holders of P1 certificate and they will need to be selected from the county merit lists gathered during the August 2016 selection exercise.

“Successful candidates will be stationed in any part of the country and not necessarily the county they were recruited,” she added.

Applicants for vacancies in post-primary institutions must be holders of a minimum of Diploma in Education certificate.

She added, “The Interested candidates should apply to the secretary, board of management of the school or institution where the vacancy has been advertised and submit a copy to the TSC county director.” Those interested have until December 30 to submit their applications.

The National government saw the deficit of teachers in the public schools according to the assessment done in July by the Ministry of Education. The cabinet secretary for the Ministry of Education Fred Matiang urged the Kenyans to take that opportunity because next year, the counties will be allocated some funds to hire more teachers to the really needy schools in their respective counties. So the ones who will miss this coming selection should not worry.
