TSC  internship program offers recent graduates in education a chance to acquire hands-on teaching experience while contributing to the educational progress of the region.

The program caters for individuals who have finished their teacher training and are seeking employment opportunities in the teaching sector.

Interested candidates are urged to visit the TSC website and use the online recruitment portal to submit their applications.

The internship initiative aims to bolster school capacity in the region by providing them with qualified teaching personnel.

Last year, TSC CEO Nancy Macharia announced that the government had allocated Sh2.5 billion for the recruitment of 5,000 teachers and Sh1.2 billion for hiring 6,000 intern teachers.

“The allocated funds are expected to facilitate the employment of 5,000 new teachers for a period of seven months and 10,000 interns for nine months,” stated Macharia.

This year, the teacher’s employer  plans to employ 21,550 intern teachers to address staffing gaps in both secondary and primary schools.

Besides, another 4,300 teachers will be recruited on a contractual basis for primary schools, while 6,000 slots have been allocated for secondary schools.

The Commission’s objective is to hire over 116,000 teachers to mitigate staff shortages in public primary and secondary schools resulting from the implementation of free education.
