Teachers Service Commision (TSC) Plans to Recruit 20,000 Teachers Starting July 2024

The Kenyan Ministry of Education has unveiled a comprehensive plan to address the teacher shortage within the country. Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, speaking on March 3rd, 2024, at Kolanya Girl’s National School, announced a targeted recruitment drive aiming to bring 20,000 new teachers on board by July 2024.

This initiative directly tackles a critical concern within the education sector. The additional teachers will significantly improve the current teacher-to-student ratio, fostering a more conducive learning environment for students.

The announcement builds upon previous recruitment efforts undertaken by the Ministry. Since President Ruto assumed office, a total of 56,750 teachers have been recruited, demonstrating a strong commitment to addressing the teacher gap.

Cabinet Secretary Machogu emphasized the Ministry’s unwavering dedication to delivering high-quality education for all Kenyan students. The planned recruitment drive underscores the government’s ongoing initiatives to strengthen and revitalize the educational landscape.

This large-scale recruitment presents a tremendous opportunity for qualified educators, particularly recent graduates, to embark on fulfilling careers within the Kenyan education system.

Teacher Service Commission Requirements

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will manage the recruitment process. Aspiring teachers should ensure they meet all eligibility criteria and possess the necessary documentation, including:

  • Valid TSC registration number
  • Certified copies of KCSE and KCPE certificates
  • Certified copies of professional certificates (degrees or diplomas)
  • Clear identification card
  • Certificate of good conduct (and potentially other required documents)

This substantial teacher recruitment drive signifies a commendable step towards bolstering Kenya’s educational system. It equips schools with the necessary resources to provide a more effective learning experience for students nationwide.
