After revealing a controversial scoresheet for 2021 permanent employment, Teachers Service Commission has yet again come with 2021 internship employment scoresheet. In the new scoresheet, TSC opt to revert to its traditional way of awarding marks to the candidates.
However, Diploma and Degree candidates from same year of graduation and same academic qualifications will continue scoring same marks going into Internship employment.
The coming exercise will see about 1,950 teachers employed as intern for both primary and secondary schools. The qualified candidates will be required to apply for the vacancies online and wait for shortlisting. After the shortlisting exercise, the commission will then invite candidates for interviews.
Teachers Service Commission and Boards of Management are required to conduct the selection exercise for the advertised vacancies in their institutions.
The Selection Panel will be expected to exercise the highest degree of transparency and accountability, as stipulated in the Public Officers Ethics Act, and TSC Code of Conduct and Ethics 2015. The Head of Institution is required to induct the panel members on the relevant sections of the Act and CORT 2015 before the commencement of the selection exercise.
All applicants must be registered teachers as per Section 23 (1) of the Teachers Service Commission Act, 2012. Applicants who are not registered do not qualify to be recruited.
Applicants who apply for confirmation of results from KNEC should give the address of the County Director where they have submitted their applications.
Applicants whose names differ in the certificates and/or identity cards are required to present sworn affidavit on the difference in names.
Applicants who re-sat either KCPE or KCSE examinations (or their equivalents) MUST present certified copies of the certificate(s) of the national examination(s) in question for all attempts.
