TSC Changes JSS Recruitment Requirements For 2023/2024. With the adoption of the competency-based curriculum, Kenyan junior secondary school (JSS) teachers now need to meet several requirements.
Because of this change, primary schools now have less work to do because secondary schools are receiving a larger portion of the academic emphasis.
Students presently enrolled in classes under the 8-4-4 system will move to Form 1 in 2024 upon passing the Kenya Certificate of Basic Education (KCPE) exam.
After the sixth-grade national exam, junior high schools will function as the primary educational institution for pupils in grades 7, 8, and 9, helping them get ready for the new Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) 2-6-3-3-3 system.
TSC Changes JSS Recruitment Requirements For 2023/2024
The Ministry of Education and Culture has selected specific primary schools to adjust to these changes.
to transform these Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) into secondary schools and upgrade their facilities.
In reaction to the lack of primary and secondary school teachers,Primary teachers will be assigned by the Department of Teachers and the Ministry of Education to keep an eye on secondary school pupils in their senior year.
Elementary school instructors who wish to be eligible must fulfill certain requirements, such as having credentials in early childhood development education, special education,
diplomas or degrees with an optional secondary school component, or relevant subject qualifications, even without a C+ grade in KCSE.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) plans to place P1 teachers with these qualifications in secondary schools,
which encompass diplomas, advanced degrees, graduate degrees, and even master’s and doctoral degrees for teaching in secondary schools (JSS).
To sum up, these updated TSC qualifications for P1 teachers designated to teach JSS reflect the changing educational scenario in Kenya,aligning with a competency-based curriculum to enhance the quality of education at both primary and secondary levels.
