Chief Executive Officer TSC Dr. Nancy Macharia said additional teachers will be deployed to secondary schools and the implementation of competency-based curriculum.
Knut’s acting secretary general, Collins Oyuu, said the deployment phase is still ongoing.
The deployment process started earlier. “Preparations for the second junior high school transition next year have been implemented,” he said
The commission issued five letters of deployment to Nairobi County, three letters each in Kilifi, Kiambu, Makueni, Embu and Kajiado counties. Both went to Nakuru District.
TSC requires teachers to meet certain objectives in order to be eligible to teach in secondary schools.
In addition, TSC said it will provide training for secondary school teachers appointed here.
This year, the teachers’ organization did not invite candidates for placement positions; Instead, they use a class list compiled from applications submitted in previous years to assign PTE teachers to classrooms.
TSC has published job vacancies for 1,000 posts in 2019 and 2020 to address the shortage of qualified teachers and facilitate the transition from primary to secondary schools.
TSC achieves high standards through placement practices for elementary school teachers.
Members of Parliament asked the TSC to promote teachers with a KCSE grade average of C or below, as well as a certificate, postgraduate or diploma from a recognized institution.
TSC, on the other hand, has increased availability for teachers who want to teach in secondary schools.
All applicants must be Kenyan citizens and this position requires a bachelor’s degree with specialization in two disciplines and a P1 certificate.
Recruited teachers must not only have a high school diploma, but must also earn a C+ or better in each subject they teach and meet TSC standards of conduct.
However, not everyone knows that some primary school teachers enroll in universities for secondary education despite having a C (flat) average in their Kenyan Certificate of Secondary Education.
At that time, students who achieved a C (easy) average in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) and PTE certificate could enroll in universities such as Nairobi, Kenyatta, Pwani and Mount Kenya.
Those posted start at job level C2 with a salary range of Sh34,955 and Sh43,694. Those living outside the municipality receive a housing allowance of $7,500 a year, in addition to a commuting allowance of Sh5,000 and a paid leave allowance of Sh6,000.
