TSC Proposes Recruitment of 20000 Intern Teachers in the Next Financial Year
TSC Proposes Recruitment of 20000 Intern Teachers in the Next Financial Year. The Teachers Service Commission, under the direction of Nancy Macharia, has recommended recruiting more than 20,000 intern teachers for the forthcoming fiscal year 2023–2024. The secretary general expressed these ideas in her submissions to the committee on education and research of the National Assembly. According to her, employing tutors will help ensure that the bottom-up economic development program is properly carried out.
“The teachers will significantly contribute to eliminating the gap that is present in all of our public schools nationwide. Additionally, they will guarantee that students obtain a quality education. She spoke. She continued by saying that hiring intern teachers alone would have a significant impact.
First off, the aforementioned employment will guarantee that the numerous young teachers who are unemployed are absorbed into the job market. The country’s educational system will also see a significant improvement in education quality.
Additionally, a significant improvement in living standards will be made in a large number of homes throughout the country. The TSC Secretary General had been invited by the education committee to provide her ideas for the projected budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
The commission is presently putting in place a medical program for teachers and people who rely on them, the secretary general of the commission confirmed. The medical program currently provides coverage for more than one million Kenyans and is working to extend access to high-quality healthcare services in accordance with its credo.
Concerns about teacher promotions
Regarding teacher promotions, Macharia stated that the commission is making every effort to boost employee motivation, loyalty, and morale as well as ensure career advancement.
But she deeply regretted that many teachers had been inactive in their job groups for so long, which had resulted in low morale and lower output. The availability of high-quality education is impacted by this situation.
She stated that in order to improve teacher advancement from one job cadre to another, the commission needs 2 billion shillings. An additional 2.1 billion shillings are needed to fund TPD for teachers. TPD is a requirement for efficient teaching and learning due to changes in dynamic teaching.
