If you’re looking for the TSC current news in Kenya, you have come to the right place.

And today we begin our TSC current news in Kenya update with good news for unemployed tutors….

TSC to hire teachers on internship

TSC will hire 10,300 intern teachers for primary as well as secondary schools in November.

This aims at easing the biting teachers shortage in Kenya estimated at more than 100,000 tutors.

Interested applicants are expected to apply by 23rd October and will be posted anywhere in Kenya.

How many vacancies exist?

A total of 4,300 intern teachers will be hired in primary schools and 6,000 in secondary schools.

You can access the advertisement in Kenyan dailies on 8th October 2019.


What are the qualifications?

According to the advertisement, you must be 35 years (or younger), have a TSC number, be currently jobless, and have at least a P1 certificate (primary posts) and a Diploma in Education (secondary school postings).

Plus, you must have an accident insurance policy (personal) covering the 12-month teaching internship period.

How much is the remuneration?

Interns selected for secondary school teaching vacancies will earn Sh15,000 monthly while primary schools recruits will pocket Sh10,000.

Like regular TSC teachers pay, the stipend is subject to the usual statutory deductions.


I know that can be a turn off but TSC has stated that the hired interns will most likely be absorbed permanently subject to successful performance during the internship and funds availability.

The genesis

The commission was awarded Sh3.2 billion to help plug the shortage in this financial year.

They have employed 5000 tutors on permanent and pensionable terms during the just ended TSC recruitment 2019/2020 against the annual demand of at least 12,626 tutors.

TSC internship recruitment will cost about Sh1.2 billion.

MPs had approved the recruitment of 87,393 interns to reduce the shortage.

Here now are other TSC current news in Kenya in brief…..


TSC deregisters 36 teachers

According to a statement published on the commission’s website, the commission has fired 36 tutors for various professional misconduct and offenses.

These include having sexual relationships with learners.

Also affected are teachers who failed to attend the CBC (competency based curriculum) training and those guilty of exam rules violations.

You can access the list of the sacked group from the TSC website.

New teachers medical cover coming

The teachers employer is nearing the tendering process of the all-inclusive multibillion shilling medical cover for its 318,000 teachers.

The new cover will cover TSC tutors up to 2022 and will replace the current AON minet insurance for teachers.

Teachers have been clamoring for an improved medical cover.

That’s all for today….
