Teachers Service Commission is set to carry out teachers mass employment in the coming school holiday. The commission is then expected to announce vacancies in both primary and secondary schools. This is normally following by candidates submitting applications online towards various schools before interviews conducted.
In TSC statistics report published early this year, there are over 300,000 jobless trained and registered teachers in the country.

Apart from internship program, geographical factors can play a role to alter this information. In most Kenyan cities and big town there are many unemployed trained teachers as compared to up countries. Occasionally, here applications surface with even 3 year of stay after qualification more as compared to other normal areas. This is usually witnessed in Nairobi, Mombasa and even Kisumu.
Apart from the above score sheet, new recruitment guidelines released by TSC, qualified teachers who have masters and those with first class honors will stand high chances of securing TSC jobs.
Furthermore, tutors teaching subjects combinations like Physics/Chemistry, Biology/Agriculture and Chemistry/Biology are easily absorbed by TSC since they are few.
The TSC employment exercises are conducted with the highest degree of transparency and accountability as provided by the Public Officers Ethics and TSc code of Conduct and Ethics 2015. The successful applicants are selected based on merits and according to the length of stay since qualification.
