The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has re-advertised mass recruitment of teachers to work in the North-Eastern counties to fill the staffing gap of tutors in schools in the region.
TSC re-advertises 844 posts for teachers in North Eastern
TSC re-advertises mass recruitment of teachers in Wajir, Mandera and Garissa counties
TSC CEO Nancy Macharia announced the recruitment in a statement seeking to hire 764 primary school and 80 secondary school teachers confirming the posts are permanent and pensionable.
The recruitment exercise is set to focus mainly on Wajir, Mandera and Garissa counties which are greatly understaffed due to security reasons.
The first round of recruitment failed to attract enough applicants, with the jobs earmarked for teachers from the region.
"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," Dr Macharia stated.
Interested candidates who are not from the three counties need to be registered teachers with the commission, holders of P1 certificates in the case of primary schools, and a minimum of a Diploma in Education in the case of secondary schools.
TSC will not be accepting manual applications, all interested candidates can apply via online portal here.
The applicants are also expected to scan and attach only the required documents. Only original documents should be scanned and uploaded.
"It is a serious offense to willfully give false information to the Teachers Service Commission. The law provides that any person convicted of the offense may be fined up to Ksh 100,000 or imprisoned for Twelve (12) months or both according to Section 44 of TSC Act No. 20 of 2012," TSC states.
