Teachers who were hired on intern by the Tsc have all the reasons to smile.The intern teachers were hired last year and reported in their various schools in January this year.
These category of teachers had hoped that the teachers employer was going to absorb them directly. This however, has not been the case as the TSC has advertised mass recruitment countrywide.
The Tsc has advertised for 5000 teachers vacancies .Of these, 1000 are for primary and the remaining 4000 for secondary. The Tsc has rolled out mass recruitment exercise to curb the acute shortage of teachers in Kenyan learning institutions and also take care of the 100% transition.
Teachers who will be smiling all through the various interview panels are those on intern.These teachers have been given an advantage of 10 marks .It means that in any interview session,a teacher serving in intern shall have an upper hand of getting the job.
Teachers in intern therefore will have all the reasons to smile as they prepare to fill the employment forms.They wont regret their decision of applying as interns.
