Teachers hired in July of this year would be in luck since, according to Commission sources, many of them could be posted in their own counties.
Most counties, including Kiambu, Kericho, Kwale, Siaya, Tana River, and Kilifi, have already received their appointment letters, and some instructors may post their letters next week.
According to insiders, teachers hired as replacements are more likely to work in the county where they are employed.
It is expected that all instructors hired in July will be assigned to their respective stations in September.
However, given that the Commission intends to post some of them through January 2023, some teachers may have to wait longer.
Successful teachers will be sent to their new places of employment in early September of this year, under the TSC recruitment roadmap.
According to the employment applications submitted by successful TSC candidates, some teachers won’t start working until January 2019.
Pressure is mounting on the Commission to abandon the delocalization strategy it adopted in 2017. The policy, according to teachers, is destroying their families and forcing them into poverty.
If Dr. William Ruto is elected president and leads a government, he has already committed to ending the teacher delocalization policy. He claimed that.
He claimed that teachers would be free to select the counties and institutions they wish to work for. To better manage the educational institutions, he promised to change the name of the present Teachers Management Institute to the Kenya School of Education.
“The hiring and placement of domesticated teachers at the entry level shall be as per there.
He referred to the UNESCO teacher deployment practice, which views education as a cultural activity carried out locally in the context of a people’s culture.
Many transfer requests from delocalized teachers who want to return to their home counties are currently causing TSC difficulty.
To fill the teacher deficit in public schools, TSC advertised for 14,460 new hires in July 2022.
844 permanent seats have also been put up by TSC for schools in the north. The positions were reserved for teachers from the area through affirmative action.
TSC, however, lamented the low turnout for tutor recruitment last week 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.
325 instructors applied for positions in primary schools, but only 39 did so for positions in high schools.
Only four teachers out of the 325 applicants for the primary schools are natives of the county with
