Senior intern eligibility for September replacement
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has provided some encouraging news for student teachers by announcing that they will now be able to apply for permanent or replacement teaching positions. TSC just recently announced 2,120 job postings in an effort to replace vacancies caused by natural attrition, which results in instructors quitting their positions.
These posts are broken down as follows: 1,591 are for elementary schools, and 529 are for secondary schools. Once the openings have been made accessible, potential candidates are required to submit their applications through the website’s online portal.
This new information provides clarification for more than 10,000 interns who were initially recruited in November 2019, and who were unsure about their opportunities for permanent employment before this development.
Initially, intern instructors are hired on one-year contracts so that they can obtain experience in the field. According to the conditions of the internship, after they have secured permanent employment, they are permitted to terminate their contracts by providing a written notice of thirty days.
Those individuals who are interested in pursuing long-term careers in education should take note of the fact that TSC has made the decision to open permanent and replacement vacancies to intern instructors.
This action is beneficial to both interns and the school system because it helps to fill essential teaching jobs, which in turn ensures stability and quality in Kenya’s educational institutions.
Intern teachers are now able to plan their futures in the teaching profession, and Kenya’s education system is able to enjoy a consistent supply of qualified educators. This contributes to the overall goal of enhancing the quality of education in the country.
This adjustment represents a substantial shift in the employment landscape for intern teachers, and it reflects TSC’s determination to cultivating and keeping teaching talent, which will eventually assist the growth and development of Kenya’s education sector.
