Gachagua Promises Intern Teachers Permanent Jobs

To gradually close the nearly 111,000 teacher  shortage, Deputy President Rigathi  Gachagua has announced intentions to hire  intern teachers on a permanent and  pensionable basis.

This action is a component of the government’s plan to lessen the workload of  educators in order to improve the standard of education.

Speaking at the 63rd Annual Delegates Conference of the Kenya National Union of  Teachers (Knut) in Kasarani, Nairobi, Gachagua recognized the movement to  recognize intern teachers as full-time, pensionable staff members.

He clarified that a purposeful approach was decided upon in talks with the  Teachers Service Commission (TSC) because of financial restrictions. While some instructors would be hired as interns with the first chance to be hired  permanently, others would be hired on a permanent and pensionable basis.

Beyond addressing unemployment and improving education quality, Gachagua highlighted that the Kenya Kwanza government had hired over 56,000 teachers in its inaugural year in office. Additionally, he emphasized the government’s commitment to addressing security challenges in regions where teachers have fled due to safety concerns, particularly in parts of North Rift and North Eastern regions.

Gachagua reassured that the government is undertaking a disarmament exercise to eliminate criminals in affected areas. Recognizing the importance of education in addressing security threats, he affirmed the government’s dedication to restoring peace, emphasizing that a threat to teachers is a threat to the nation’s future.

Gachagua called on the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and other relevant  parties to work together to develop a formula that ensures fair distribution and  keeps some regions from being disadvantaged, while acknowledging that teachers  have the right to select their preferred service locations.

This program is in line with the overarching objective of creating a supportive  atmosphere for teachers and raising educational standards nationwide.
