The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) now hiring 11,574 teachers and will promote 1,000 others in a move that aims at relieving the persistent staffing pressure in public schools.

Secondary schools will be the main beneficiaries of the new teachers, with a focus placed on maintaining the 100 per cent shift from primary to secondary school.

Primary schools will have the highest representation of teachers hired to substitute those who have exited the service.

Of the total number, 5,000 will be fresh vacancies, which will be computed to the current teaching team of 337,432, according to the newest data.

Another strategy to the teachers in primary schools, TSC will promote and redeploy to secondary schools 1,000 tutors who have achieved higher qualifications while in service but have rotted in their job grades.

Those who qualify for promotion must hold a P1 certificate in addition to a bachelor’s degree in education with two teaching subjects.

They are required to have at least a C+ (plus) mean grade at the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam or its equivalent, and C+ (plus) or its equivalent in their chosen two teaching subjects.
