New TSC Score sheet for Primary teacher (P1) employment for 2019/2020 Marking scheme, Required Documents and Selection panel

Each year TSC advertise employment opportunities for primary schools teachers and post primary schools tutors through print media. This gives opportunity to trained teachers who are unemployed.

Though primary teacher employment takes time, the good thing is that ultimately one will secure a job. Applicants for primary post must be holders of P1 certificate. In addition be a Kenyan citizen aged 44 years and below.

Just like the case of secondary teacher recruitment, length of stay and P1 qualifications also play a vital role in employment of P1 teachers. Apart from length of stay since completion of teaching course, the age bracket of an individual has some weight in ones employment.

During the selection day one should carry the following original documents to sub-county selection panel;

  1. National Identity card.
  2. CPE/KCPE certificate (including first attempt certificate if one repeated exam).
  3. PTE certificate.
  4. School/college leaving certificates.

Sub county selection panel shall include the following;

  1. Sub-County Director – Chairperson
  2. TSC Sub-County Human Resource Officer – Secretary
  3. All zonal Curriculum Support Officer – Members
