The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) on Thursday said it was enrolling 1,197 teachers to supplant the individuals who have left the service through natural attrition over the most recent three months.
According to the TSC Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia, there are 893 vacancies in primary schools and 304 in secondary schools.
Mrs Macharia said qualified competitors ought to be Kenyans aged 45 and below.
They should have original professional and academic endorsements and be enlisted as teachers according to Section 23 of the Teachers Service Commission Act of 2012.
“Applicants for vacancies in primary schools must be holders of the P1 certificate. They will be selected from the county merit lists compiled during the May 2018 recruitment of additional teachers,” she said.
“Applicants for vacancies in post primary institutions must be holders of a minimum of a diploma in education.”
The teachers in the merit list are those who underwent interviews and have been awaiting posting.
Interested candidates were asked to send their applications, no later than January 4, to the secretaries of the boards of institutions with vacancies and submit copies of their documents to the TSC county directors.
Successful candidates will be deployed to any part of the country, the CEO noted.
