Intern Teachers To BE Permanent And Pensionable After Serving For Two Years
Intern instructors around the country will be happy to hear this. After two years of service, all of the 46,000 intern teachers in the country will be immediately integrated onto permanent and pensionable terms, as promised by the Teachers Service Commission TSC.
This was said during a meeting between the Teachers Service Commission TSC and Education Parliamentary Committee yesterday.
My opinion is that intern teachers should be hired full-time. This is due to the fact that they must overcome several challenges in order to succeed as educators. The lack of enough funding and supplies in schools is a significant barrier. Schools in Kenya, especially those in rural regions, sometimes lack basic resources like computers, textbooks, and even physical buildings. Intern teachers are hampered by this shortcoming in their ability to impart useful knowledge and skills to their students.
Intern instructors may not be adequately prepared for the classroom due to inadequate training programs. Inconsistencies between what they learn in college and what they need to know in the classroom might make the transfer challenging.
Disparities in wages and payment delays are also a cause for concern. Intern instructors may suffer financial challenges due to small salary and unpredictable payment schedules, which can influence their motivation and job satisfaction.
In conclusion, intern teachers in Kenya face obstacles such as lack of funding, poor classroom management skills, and inadequate preparation. This highlights the need for improvements to the education system and support for these early-career educators, as these challenges can have an impact on the quality of education they give and on their overall job satisfaction.
