How TSC Breaks Tie During Recruitment Interviews

When it comes to teacher recruitment, ties are usually expected. In this case, it is the selected panel’s responsibility to ensure a high level of transparency and accountability when breaking ties.

In the event of a tie, consideration for selection will be determined in the following order of priority:

a) Applicants’ disability status;
b) Participation in the TSC Teacher Internship Programme;
c) Length of Stay since graduation;
d) Strength of academic and professional certificates presented.
e) If applicants tie in aggregate grades, subject grades shall be considered.

The following are critical aspects: 
When breaking a tie during an internship recruitment exercise, the TSC recruitment Panel considers the following factors:

a) an applicant’s disability status

The Teacher’s Service Commission (TSC) plays an important role in ensuring that applicants with disabilities (PWD) are also eligible for TSC Internship positions.

The commission devised a policy to eliminate discriminatory practices against teachers with special needs, creating a favorable environment for them to secure opportunities in the commission.

How TSC Determines an Applicant’s Disability.


The teachers’ employer worked with the National Council for Persons with Disabilities (NCPWD) to identify the nature, type, and degree of disability in a teacher.


The following are the necessary declarations that a special needs teacher must make:

After registering with the NCPWD, the applicant will be given a certificate of disability, which will be reviewed before acceptance.


Once registered with the NCPWD, applicants must declare their disability status within the time frame specified by the commission.

b) Participation in the TSC Teacher Internship Programme

On the recruitment score sheet, all applicants who served as teacher interns are listed as;

  • 15 points for three (3) years of internship,
  • 10 points for those who served for two years, and
  • 5 points for those who served for the first year of an internship.

c) Length of Stay since graduation;

This group of applicants usually are prioritized when it comes to breaking a tie.


d) Strength of academic and professional certificates presented.

In this case, each applicant’s academic and professional credentials are thoroughly examined in order to compare qualifications.

The day is taken by a highly qualified applicant. If there are still competitive issues at this level, the panel narrows it down to KCSE mean grades, followed by grades in teaching subjects.


e) If applicants tie in aggregate grades, subject grades shall be considered.

If the applicants have the KCPE and teaching practice marks, the panel may look into them further.

f) Teachers who had never worked for TSC before.

This is also important when breaking the tie. Applicants who have never worked for TSC are always given first priority.
