TSC Stops Recruitment Of Teachers As Interns. The recruiting of teachers as interns has now been halted and directed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
The Education Committee of the National Assembly has now requested that the Board put the internship program on hold and concentrate instead on employing teachers with long-term, pensionable contracts.
During a hearing before the Commission, TSC Director Dr. Nancy Macharia stated that the Commission intends to hire an additional 10,000 intern teachers.
Dr. Macharia promptly defended the decision, saying that the Commission’s hiring of regular instructors would be challenging due to the National Treasury’s financial allocation being constrained.
Dr. Macharia claims that the commission has only Sh2 billion available for hiring out of a total budget of Sh15.4 billion.
To close the initial staffing shortage and add additional instructors to junior high schools, TSC wants to hire 5,000 full-time and retired teachers.
Macharia added that the country’s teaching staff is under stress as a result of the 100% conversion program, necessitating the hiring of additional educators.
TSC’s CEO came before the committee to propose the budget for the current fiscal year.
A program for internships was started by the employer of teachers, TSC, with roughly 10,000 registered teachers .
Primary school instructors earn Sh15,000 per month, whereas secondary school teachers with training earn Sh20,000. The stipend is subject to some statutory deductions.
