The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has announced 844 posts for teachers to work in three northeastern counties.
In an advertisement posted on Monday, 27th June, Nancy Macharia’s commission said that it was seeking 764 primary school and 80 secondary school teachers to work in Garissa, Mandera and Wajir counties.
The new teachers are to be posted on a permanent and pensionable basis.
Meanwhile, the TSC has also re-advertised 386 teaching posts (114 for primary schools and 272 for secondary schools) on contractual terms to fill vacancies in Garissa, Wajir and Mandera counties.
“To qualify for recruitment, a candidate should be a Kenyan citizen, be hailing from Garissa, Mandera or Wajir Counties, be teaching under Board of Management in Garissa, Mandera or Wajir counties,” read part of the notice.
Interested candidates, who are not from the three counties, need to be registered with the commission, be holders of P1 certificates in the case of primary schools and a minimum of a Diploma in Education for secondary schools.
“Interested and qualified candidates should submit their applications online through the Teachers Service Commission’s website, www.tsc.go.ke under ‘Careers’ or teachersonline.tsc.go.ke not later than 7 th July, 2022,” TSC added.
The commission’s move is meant to curb the teachers’ shortage in the three counties, which are generally understaffed due to security reasons.
