For a long period of time,education sector has been experiencing shortage of teachers countrywide due to inadequate funds that are being allocated by the government at each financial year to the Ministry.

As a result,some of the schools end up performing poorly in their studies especially in North Eastern region where apart from shortage of teachers they experience poor environmental conditions.

As a measure of sympathy by the Teachers Service Commission it has decided to employ more teachers specifically in Garissa,Wajir and Mandera counties where 844 posts have been announced by Teachers Service Commission(TSC).

According to Nancy Macharia-led commission,she said that 764 primary post vacancies are available and 80 vacancies for the secondary school teachers are available based on the re-advertisement she made on Monday where she added that all 844 posts are on permanent and pensionable terms as agreed.

On contractual terms TSC re-advertised 386 teachers post where 144 belonging to primary schools as the remaining 272 posts for secondary school teachers in order to fill the available vacancies in the targeted counties.

For one to qualify for the above listed posts,there are some conditions that candidate should meet as follows:

(1)A candidate must be a kenyan citizen.

(2)Must be teaching under board within the three listed counties.

(3)Be hailing from Garissa,Wajir or Mandera.

The above requirements are part of the notice that was provided on re-advertisement.For the interested candidates outside the three mentioned counties,they are required to be registered teachers with the commission,be holders of P1 certificate in the case of primary school and a minimum of diploma in Education in the case of secondary school.

"Interested and qualified candidates should submit their applications online through the Teachers Service Commission’s website, under ‘Careers’ or not later than 7th July, 2022,” TSC added.

During the release of 2021 K.C.P.E results,it was realised that the total number of teachers required by the Education sector for smooth learning processes was 114,581 teachers and the TSC board are working earnestly to make sure they achieve their goals.

"We thank the government for funding resources to allow us to recruit an average of 5,000 teachers annually for our public schools. However, we still have a shortage of 114,581 teachers in primary and post-primary institutions,” said Macharia.

"This is due to the increased enrolment arising from the 100% transition policy, and registration of new schools."TSC boss attributed.

As kenyans,let us all unite to ensure that our children get the required quality of Education as teamwork makes impossible to be possible.
