TSC CEO Requests Educators Without Jobs to Apply Fairly.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) CEO Dr Nancy Macharia has urged all unemployed teachers to apply for advertised jobs in any part of the country without considering those in their home counties.
“I urge all unemployed teachers to always do their homework and apply for advertised jobs in any part of the country, and shun the practice of only seeking advertised jobs in their home counties,” She stated.
Speaking during the 20th KEPSHA Annual Delegates Conference, Macharia thanked the government for allocating funds that has enabled the recruitment of more than 56,000 teachers.
“I wish to thank the Kenya Kwanza Government, under the stewardship of H.E. President William Ruto for allocating us funds to recruit 56,000 teachers in the past one year, majority of whom were posted to the Junior School,” Macharia Stated.
“This annual event gives the TSC an opportunity to meet with wonderful professionals who have been entrusted with the management of more than 10 million learners enrolled in our 22,935 Public Primary and Junior schools,”
Speaking at the event Education Cabinet Secretary, Ezekiel Machogu, announced the commencement of a process aimed at promoting teachers who have remained in the same grade for a long period of time.
He highlighted that this promotion initiative encompasses primary school headteachers, particularly recognizing their pivotal role in the Junior Secondary schools (JSS) currently housed within their institutions.
“All P1 teachers heading primary schools will be promoted from grade C3 and above as principals of Junior Secondary Schools,” he affirmed.
Machogu expressed his belief that many primary school head teachers are highly qualified graduates deserving promotions .
Machogu commended head teachers who possess PhDs in various educational fields and urged the TSC to facilitate their promotion, underscoring their competence to undertake other professional responsibilities.
