Private Schools Wants TSC To Relax Rules For Hiring Teachers

Kenya Private Schools Association has urged the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to relax rules governing the hiring of teachers in private schools.

TSC, according to Kepsa national chairman Charles Ochome, must remain flexible and allow private schools to hire teachers based on talent.

According to Ochome, the TSC has mandated that they only hire registered teachers to guide students through the Competency-Based Curriculum.

“We are ready to bring in tutors who can train pupils in different talents, not necessarily trained and registered ones,” he said.

He went on to say that there is no reason to put obstacles in the way of talented people finding work.

Ochome, who was speaking in Kisumu, went on to say, “We have talented people like coaches who can teach our children football, music yet they don’t require to attend teachers training colleges,”.

He also urged TSC to let them scout for talent.

He stated that CBC is a new concept that should be shaped for success, but putting roadblocks in its path will only impede its implementation.

“A lot of investments, from both government and private sector have been put into this curriculum and it will be unfortunate if we waste those resources,” he said.

He praised Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha for easing the registration guidelines for schools that are supposed to offer junior secondary education.

“I think that is the best thing Magoha has ever done for us in the private sector and we applaud him,” he said.
