New Deductions On Intern Teachers Salary. The Teachers Service Commission has implemented a brand-new deduction. The groups of teachers who are likely to be impacted by these deductions are intern teachers in elementary and high schools.
The expected pay for intern teachers at the primary school level is Sh15,000 per month. Secondary school interns had to be paid at least Sh20,000 per month. This is in compliance with the guidelines given by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) at the beginning of the intern teacher recruiting process.
However, there are a few deductions that must be done before instructors receive their final share of these monthly profits.
Inter teachers at both elementary and secondary institutions had their access to the national health insurance fund (NHIF) previously restricted by the commission. Interns in primary school teaching must make a monthly deduction of sh500. Each intern teacher’s pay was deducted Sh750 for the fund.
The most recent payslip featured a new, required deduction that the teachers service commission had added; this deduction was to go to NSSF.

Currently, the commission deducts sh900 from intern primary teachers and sh1080 from intern secondary teachers.
The pay for educators was thus decreased on that payslip. This is due to the additional deductions.
Average pay for an intern teacher was Sh13,000 in elementary schools and Sh18,000 after deductions in senior schools.
To assist new instructors in becoming prepared for their jobs as teachers, a one-year program known as an internship program for educators is offered.
To qualify, one must be a citizen of Kenya. TSC also needs to register them. They must also hold a teaching degree from a national university that is approved. A grade of at least C plus in the two teaching subjects is also required.
