TSC Reveals Two Unique Features to its Recruitment Webpage
TSC Reveals Two Unique Features to its Recruitment Webpage. The Teachers Service Commission (TSC), a day after announcing that there will be 20,000 openings for intern teachers in junior secondary schools (18,000) and primary schools (2,000), has introduced two unique features to the recruitment webpage it maintains for its organization.
Thanks to TSC’s activation of the edit button, candidates can now modify the sub-county in which they want to apply for openings.
After performing a spot check, our team learned that candidates could only choose from two options. Even though the commission advised applicants to select just one county, this happened.
The commission has added a new button called “Ethnicity” to the section titled “Edit my details.” All applicants are prompted to identify their tribe on this page while updating their profile information on the recruitment portal.
Online applications had to be filed by everyone interested in the post, either at teachersonline.tsc.ke or under the Careers link on the official website, tsc.go.ke.
The Kalenjin community was allocated the most slots during the recruitment process that took place in January 2023, according to a report that TSC presented on Tuesday, May 30. Other significant tribes including the Luhya, Kikuyu, Kamba, Luo, and Kisii came afterwards.
The panel also provided a description of the various regions where the recruits came from. These included Bajun (35), Basuba (6), Boni-Sanye (6), Boran (45), Burji (7), Degodia (9), Dorobo (2), Elmolo (1), Embu (232), Gabra (17), Kalenjin (4,048), Kamba (2,899), Kenya Arab (1), Kikuyu (2,913), Kisii (1,737), Kuria (108), Luhya (3,187), Luo (2,576), Masai (461), Mbere (25), Meru (1,220), Miji Kenda (500), Murulle (1), Ogaden (2), and Orma (5).
Pokomo (18), Pokot (312), Rendille (2), Sakuye (2), Samburu (93), Somali (43), Swahili-Shirazi (11), Taita (232), Teso (105), Tharaka (56), and Turkana (73), among others, were also present.
The study’s conclusions show that 36 of the 42 legally recognized tribes received some of the 20,990 open teaching slots. This shows that not a single teaching position was added to six villages.
After the hiring process was complete, 30,550 new teachers were hired to serve in Junior Secondary Schools (JSS), with the remaining openings being filled in regular secondary schools.
