On Tuesday, July 19, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) released the names of the individuals who had been shortlisted to fill 14,460 positions nationwide.
The commission announced 5,000 new teaching vacancies as well as an additional 8,230 positions to replace teachers who have departed the service due to attrition.
According to media sources, more than 356,000 tutors applied for the roles, with post-primary teaching positions drawing the most interest after 219,311 teachers expressed interest in the 4,000 openings.
For the 1,000 openings, 136,833 primary school tutors applied. Additionally, the commission received more than 327,882 applications for the 8,230 openings left by instructors who left due to attrition.
In order to fill the teaching gaps in Garissa, Mandera, and Wajir, the commission initially advertised 386 positions, with 114 for primary schools and 272 for secondary schools on contractual terms. TSC also used affirmative action targeting schools in drought-stricken counties like Mandera, Garissa, and Wajir.
“To qualify for recruitment, a candidate should be a Kenyan citizen, be hailing from Garissa, Mandera or Wajir Counties, be teaching under Board of Management in Garissa, Mandera or Wajir Counties,” read part of the notice.
