TSC Letters of offer on Employment for 2021. Employment Letters For Recently Employed Teachers Trickling In Even As Others Have Delayed Despite Elapsing Period
The TSC sub county offices have received the appointment letters for a number of teachers who were due to report on September 1st.
However, the majority of teachers who applied for the posts but haven’t yet been posted find the delayed pace of the appointment letters reaching the counties frustrating.
Despite the delay in posting, a handful of instructors have already reported to their new schools.
Teachers are receiving posting letters from the TSC sub county directors that list the schools to which they are reporting.
When a teacher reports, the receiving school head completes the online casualty (entry/exit) form, noting the teacher’s start date and the time the teacher should be added to the TSC payroll.
This month’s data entered into the online casualty is crucial because the Commission will use it to grant the teachers their annual compensation increase.
Up to two weeks pass before schools are formally closed. By the 16th of September, all schools should be closed, per the Ministry’s calendar.
Details reveal that TSC has carried out the instructors’ delocalization despite objections. The newly hired teachers are reporting to counties other than the ones where they are employed.
Particularly among teachers who filled out employment letters, there have been concerns about when they will receive the appointment letters that will require them to be posted to schools.
While high school teachers will receive their letters from the secondary school Principals, primary school teachers will receive their letters from the TSC sub county offices.
On September 1st, 2022, TSC had intended to post the newly hired teachers to their new stations.
Details, however, indicate that the Commission will assign the new hires to their new schools starting in September and continuing through January of the following year.
Successful TSC recruiters who filled out employment papers indicated that some teachers might have to wait until January of the following year before being assigned.
TSC Appointment Letters 2022
According to the job papers that the instructors filled out last month, the Commission will post the teachers in the months of September, October, November, and December.
Before it can begin hiring intern instructors, the Commission must complete the posting of these teachers.
Over 356,000 unemployed teachers applied for the 14,000 openings posted by the TSC last month, illustrating the severity of the unemployment problem in the nation.
In contrast to the past, when lengthy merit lists would be created, just the top five applicants for each of the offered posts were shortlisted.
With 219,311 instructors expressing interest in the 4,000 new openings, post-primary teaching positions drew the most candidates.
The commission received 136,833 applications for the 1,000 new primary school teacher openings that were posted.
Additionally, TSC posted 8,230 job openings to replace teachers who left the service due to attrition.
327,882 applications were submitted in response to the openings in elementary schools (6,539) and post-primary institutions (1,691).
TSC, however, lamented the low turnout for the recruitment of tutors in the sizable Wajir County.
The number of locals who showed up for the recruitment procedure was sparse, according to TSC county director James Ogongo.
This, according to Mr. Ogongo, was despite the commission running new job advertisements for 325 P1 teachers to fill the gap left by those who left in 2020 owing to unrest in the area.
The requirement was that both residents and non-residents who work in the county apply. Said Mr. Ogongo.
The teachers are required to report to work by September 1st, he noted, and the application forms were checked and sent to TSC headquarters in Nairobi after the recruiting process.
He praised the commission for the exercise and stated that the employment will assist ease the burden on the county’s few teachers.
325 instructors applied for positions in primary schools, but only 39 did so for positions in high schools.
Only four of the 325 applicants for the primary schools are county residents, leaving 321 non-residents as potential teachers.
