The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has extended the application deadline for jobs advertised last week.

In a statement on Saturday, TSC gave applicants one more week to tender their applications before the window closes on December 23, 2022.

“The Teachers Service Commission reviewed the roadmap for the Recruitment of Teachers and Teacher Interns. The deadline for submission of applications has been extended from 16th to 23rd December 2022,” TSC stated.

In the ongoing exercise, the commission seeks to recruit 35,550 teachers in both public primary and secondary schools.

Out of the total, the TSC noted that 10,000 would be employed on permanent pensionable terms while the other 25,550 would be on intern basis. 

The 10,000 teachers would further be distributed, with 9,000 of them allocated to secondary schools and the rest to primary schools.

As for the interim teachers, 21,550 slots are reserved for junior secondary schools currently in the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) programme while the remaining 4,000 will be dispatched to primary schools.

The recruitment follows a recent directive by President William Ruto where he said his administration would hire over 30,000 teachers starting January 2023 in a bid to mitigate the nationwide teacher-student ratio gap.
