TSC Issues PnP Letters to 3000 Teachers

According to information released by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), replacements were recently hired to fill newly created permanent and pensionable (pnp) teaching positions. In order to get ready for the reopening in January, all of the appointed teachers have been given posting letters and instructions to report to their designated workstations. In order to hire 5,000 teachers overall, the Commission was able to get from the Treasury a budget allocation of sh 2.5 billion in September.

It’s interesting to note that TSC chose to let MPs propose candidates from their areas rather than posting these openings on the internet. This divergence from traditional hiring practices begs the question of why the Commission has returned to an approach it gave up years ago because of worries about discrimination and corruption by the MPs in charge of hiring teachers.

The reversion to this approach seems to be linked to the influence of the Kenya Kwanza government, which played a role in the Commission’s recent reforms. Consequently, legislators now hold complete authority over teacher replacements.

In December, both primary and secondary schools received substitute teachers, with school principals required to facilitate the admission process through an online casualty form, expediting salary disbursements for staff. Some teachers were fortunate enough to secure permanent positions without undergoing an internship.

Currently, TSC has 46,000 instructors working on internship terms. The Commission intends to add two more years to the contracts of those employed in February before incorporating them into the pnp payroll. Furthermore, TSC has re-posted 1,098 teaching positions in junior secondary schools. Interested parties have until December 15th to submit their applications.
