Senior interns to be automatically confirmed before replacement

As required by the constitution, Kenya’s Teachers Service Commission (TSC) oversees numerous facets of the teaching profession. This covers teacher registration, the recruiting procedure, promotions, transfers, and making sure that teachers receive their salaries on time.

The CEO of TSC has recently worked aggressively to secure additional money to address the ongoing teacher shortage problem and to encourage more promotions to higher job groups within the teaching industry.

Furthermore, the commission is actively advocating for improved compensation packages for both primary and secondary school teachers across Kenya, recognizing the importance of recognizing their dedication and hard work.

Despite these continued difficulties, there is good news for Kenyan teachers. All educators who began their careers as hired interns from 2019 onward have  been formally verified as permanent and pensionable employees, which  represents a significant development this year. By giving these committed educators job security and financial stability, this  action represents a huge advancement.

Moreover, in February of this year, TSC took a proactive step by hiring approximately 20,000 intern teachers, specifically for junior and primary schools. This hiring initiative was aimed at bolstering support for the implementation of the new competency-based curriculum (CBC) in the country.While some of these newly hired intern teachers have already transitioned into permanent and pensionable positions, a portion of them remain in their internship roles. According to reliable reports, there is a plan in place to ensure that all intern teachers hired in February of this year will eventually progress into permanent and pensionable roles. This transition promises to be a significant milestone in the landscape of teacher employment in Kenya.

Before the start of the upcoming academic year, it is anticipated that all intern teachers now working in junior and elementary schools would get official letters certifying their move to long-term, pensionable posts.This action shows that TSC is taking a proactive and forward-thinking approach to securing Kenya’s educational future and ensuring the welfare of its devoted teaching workforce.
