The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has issued a clarification on the 2022 Teacher Recruitment, Replacement vacancies. This comes as prospective teachers remain hopeful of capturing the advertised vacancies in public schools countrywide.
The Commission is carrying out periodic recruitment of teachers in order to address the large staffing gaps in secondary and primary schools in the country.
To apply for the vacancies, one is expected to apply via the TSC Online Portal; as there is no provision for manual application.
After applications, the Commission lists successful applicants who then attend interviews at designated County locations.
The procedure above is though for secondary and tertiary school teachers. Primary school teachers have had difficulties filling their applications, online. This prompted the Commission to issue a statement. In the statement released on Wednesday, January 26, the commission clarified on the selection of primary school teachers to fill the vacancies advertised.
The Dr Nancy Macharia-led agency stated that teachers will be selected from a list of a past recruitment process conducted in July 2021.
“In the January 2022 advertisement on natural attrition, primary school teachers will be selected from the merit list compiled during the recruitment of additional teachers-July 2021,” read the statement in part.
On January 19, the commission, announced that the recruitment of 2,945 teachers to replace those who had exited the service through natural attrition.
