TSC boss Nancy Macharia said the move brings to 12,000 the number of teachers recruited since last year, when the plan was rolled out.

“These teachers will come in handy in supporting this policy, which ensures that all children from primary join secondary schools,” said Mrs Macharia.

The recruitment is expected to cost Sh3 billion. Earlier, National Assembly Education Committee Chairman Julius Melly had indicated that 10,000 teachers would be hired at a cost of Sh5 billion.

On Tuesday, Mrs Macharia met ODM leader Raila Odinga to discuss issues affecting the education sector.

“The CEO of the Teachers Service Commission paid me a courtesy call at Capitol Hill Square, during which we had discussions on issues to do with education and the challenges teachers face,” tweeted Mr Odinga.

Last month, TSC warned of a possible education crisis, unless nearly 70,000 teachers were hired to support the growing student population. Already, more than 80,000 students have reported to secondary schools.

SH16 BILLION

Mrs Macharia said secondary schools require 57,380 teachers, not taking into consideration the shortage occasioned by the 100 per cent transition.

TSC had proposed that 12,626 teachers be recruited annually for four years from 2018, at a cost of Sh8.3 billion per year.

But last year, the commission was given funds to recruit 8,700 teachers this year. Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed has announced that the Ministry will provide Sh16 billion for infrastructural development from this month.

Meanwhile, Kenya National Union of Teachers secretary-general Wilson Sossion said: “We cannot talk of quality education when schools have a serious shortage of teachers,” he said.

Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers Secretary-General Akelo Misori regretted that teachers are overburdened, which can compromise the quality of education.

Currently, there are 312,000 teachers in the country, with another 290,000 trained but still unemployed.

for 5,000 Positions this month

Teachers have until February 12 to apply for TSC jobs

Teachers who wish to be employed by the government have until February 12 to submit their applications.

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is recruiting 5,000 teachers to support 100 percent transition from primary to secondary schools, a policy in its second phase.

TSC chief executive Nancy Macharia said those applying for the positions must be 45 years and below and must be registered with the commission.

“Applications for posts in secondary schools must be holder of a minimum of diploma in education and should apply  to the boards of management of the schools where a vacancy has been advertised and submit an application  to the TSC county director,” said Mrs Macharia.

She said the commission will only deal with TSC county directors and board of management in the exercise.

The recruitment of the teachers will bring to 12,000 the number of teachers recruited since last year, when the plan was rolled out.

“These teachers will come in handy in supporting this policy, which ensures that all children from primary join secondary schools,” said Mrs Macharia.

The recruitment is expected to cost Sh3 billion.

Last month, TSC warned of a possible education crisis, unless nearly 70,000 teachers were hired to support the growing student population.

Already, more than 800,000 students have reported to secondary schools.

Teachers unions have also asked the government to hire more teachers, saying quality education cannot be realised when the country has a shortage of teachers.

TSC had proposed that 12,626 teachers be recruited annually for four years from 2018, at a cost of Sh8.3 billion per year.
