Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has advertised permanent jobs for interns and unemployed teachers. A total of 10,000 teachers will be employed in the coming mass recruitment.
During the interviews, intern teachers will be awarded the 30 marks for internship. However, they will be required to meet some conditions.
Among the evidence required from intern teachers for them to score the 30 marks is certificate of internship. The junior intern teachers are yet to complete their contract for them to obtain this important document.
However, TSC has softened its stand on evidence required for the junior interns to scope the 30 marks. Any evidence for Internship contract will earn them the marks. This is a good news for junior who neither have certificate of Internship nor extension letter.
This means any of the below requirement is enough to earn any intern teachers the crucial 30 marks;
Three payslips for 2020 and three for 2021, letter from the institution where he was detained, letter from the Regional Director of Education stating when the contract began.
