The teachers service commission is mandated to register trained teachers offer them employmenton merirt.The teaching staff are an integral part of curriculum implementation and assessment of learners progression. The tutors have a role to impart knowledge and skills in learners as well as inculcating moral values an all round Citizen. Though the teaching profession is a noble job, the employer has not adequately remunerated the kenyan teachers for the essential services they render to the young population of this country. Many qualified teachers are still unemployed because of the limited opportunities of employment. The TSC just recruits afew teachers to replace those who have exited the service. The vacancies are limited even during normal employment.
The new Competence Based Curriculum will require additional teachers to effectively implement the curriculum. The government should be working on modalities to avail enough funds to hire more teachers to fix the perennial problem of understaffing. The double intake expected in few years to come will even complicate issues if TSC doesn't employ adequate teaching force.
On a good note,the Commission has advertised replacement vacancies to fill gaps that will be left by retirees. A number of colleagues who have left the service through death, early retirement or resignation will be replaced in various learning institutions. The recruitment is intended to alleviate the problem of understaffing.The government should endeavour to increase budgetary allocations to TSC to bring more personnel on board to adequately cater for educational needs of every learner as the country shifts focus on CBC.
