TSC Employs 14,460 Teachers Ahead of January Transition

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has hired 14,460 new teachers to solve shortfall and replace retiring personnel.

TSC Chief Executive Officer said all the new instructors were hired in September 2022.

In her address at the Kenya School of Government in Nairobi on the World Teachers’ Day Celebrations, Dr Macharia said: “I celebrate the teachers for continuing to shoulder a bigger burden arising from the increased enrolment occasioned by the noble 100 per cent transition programme in our schools.

“The TSC has posted 14,460 new teachers who were recruited last month (September 2022) arising from the fresh recruitment, and replacement of teachers who left service through natural attrition.”

Macharia said the normal three-term schools’ academic cycle will resume in January 2023 after two years of reduced study to make up for time missed following the emergence of Covid-19 in March 2020.

During the Teachers’ Day celebrations, 246 teachers were awarded for their performance in teaching and effective execution of the curriculum. Fifty-one (51) of these professors were awarded.

“We are also commemorating 51 teachers who have won national prizes over the last two years, 21 of them were recognized in 2022.

“As is our custom, the process of identifying the teachers to be awarded today has been done in line with the TSC Performance Recognition, Reward and Sanction Policy Framework,” said Dr Macharia.

The TSC boss also commended President William Ruto’s decision to appoint a 49-member taskforce (42 members and seven secretariat members) to examine the competency-based curriculum development.

“I wish to congratulate the president for assigning eight classroom teachers to the team and also ensuring that the TSC secretariat is properly represented in the Working Party. These professors are Anthony Cheruiyot Sitienei, Margaret W. Chege, Peter Tabichi, Jane Kimiti, Jacinta Ngure, Bernard Kariuki Njoroge, Virginia Wahome, and Salome Eyangan,” added Dr Macharia.

“We congratulate and welcome this bold initiative to involve Kenyans in the implementation of the CBC in conformity with the Constitution.”

She urged all teachers and executives of the teacher organizations and unions to make presentations as would be expected of the team to guarantee that Kenya’s education system remains on the proper trajectory.

“The commission is completely prepared to comply with the recommendations of the Working Party as would be directed by the Head of State.”
