All instructors who worked as interns in 2022 will be given permanent, pensionable employment through the Teachers' Service Commission.
The cohort will be incorporated into the ongoing teacher recruitment process, according to a memo from the commission's interim director of staffing, Joseph Mugele, as the government looks to hire 35,550 teachers this month to close the teacher-to-student ratio deficit.
“The interviews for the exercise commence on Friday, January 13 and recruitment documents are scheduled for February 6,” reads the memo dated January 11, 2023.
After TSC CEO Nancy Macharia disclosed the commission was short 114,581 teachers in October, President William Ruto stated that the recruitment of the 35,550 teachers is the first stage of absorbing a planned 116,000 instructors.
Ten thousand of these will have permanent, pensionable jobs, according to TSC's announcement from last month, while the remaining 25,550 will be internships.
The remaining 9,000 instructors would be divided across primary and secondary schools, making up the remaining 10,000 teachers.
The junior secondary schools will receive 21,550 intern seats, while the remaining 4,000 interns will be sent to the primary schools.
