TSC to hire more teachers on internship program

The teachers service commission TSC is planning to hire more teachers on internship program to help reduce the gap of teacher shortage in public primary and secondary schools.
TSC made its demands to gain more funds for the hiring exercise ahead of school reopening come January 2021.
TSC said it immediately requires Sh25 billion to effectively prepare for schools opening, which has been pushed to January 2021.
The Commission said it plans to hire 12,000 additional intern teachers ahead of the opening.
This will bring to 23,574, the total number of intern teachers hired by TSC since last year.
Of the amount, TSC is asking for Sh17 billion to hire 26,000 teachers so as to manage the high enrollment under the 100% transition. The commission also needs 1.8 Billion annually to hire 12,500 teachers.

TSC CEO Nancy Macharia made the request for the funds during a two-day consultative forum with National Assembly Education Committee.
In the current financial year, the commission received a budget of Sh2.5 billion to employ 5,000 teachers.
Under the Economic Stimulus Programme, the commission was allocated a further Sh2.4 billion funds to engage 12,000 interns.
The news of hiring some 12,000 more interns comes weeks after the commission refuted claims it had made such an announcement of similar number and termed the notice that was going round on social media as fake.
