The Teachers Service Commission,TSC, has plans to recruit 30,000 tutors by January 2023.The move is to address the shortage of teachers who are needed to handle students in junior secondary school.
The recruitment will address both primary and secondary school teachers who will be employed on permanent and pensionable terms.
Priority will be given to unemployed teachers who possess required qualifications to teach in secondary school.
The teachers to be considered are those with Diplomas in or a Bachelor of Education secondary option.
Also to be considered are those who were trained in CBC to teach in junior secondary school domiciled in primary schools.
The TSC CEO Dr Nancy Macharia said that the commission has set a Diploma certificate as the minimum requirement for teachers who want to teach in junior secondary school.
I addition, the teacher must have scored at least a mean grade of C+(plus) in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education and scored at least C+(plus) in the two teaching subjects.
According to Dr Nancy Macharia, already 60,000 secondary school teachers were trained on CBC in May 2022.
This comes after President William Ruto directed the ministry of education, KICD and TSC to work on modalities of fast-tracking retooling teachers to ensure sufficiency of teachers who are compliant with CBC.
