Official TSC scoresheet for secondary Intern Teachers Recruitment August 2021

After unveiling the permanent employment marking scheme  in 2021, the Teacher Services Commission has again come up with a  new 2021 intern teacher employment marking scheme that will be used during the internship Recruitment Exercise.



In the news scoresheet, the TSC has returned to its traditional way of giving marks to candidates.


In the intern marking scheme, applicants in the second upper class will now receive 5 marks more than the lower class  grade, as opposed to a permanent employment scoresheet where both could obtain the same marks.



However, Diploma and Degree students from the same year of graduation and the same  degree of education qualification will continue to receive the same marks as they will go for Internship employment.



The upcoming  recruitment exercise will see about 6,000 teachers employed as intern  in primary and secondary schools.



Following the advertisement, the commission invited candidates to apply online , after which the Teachers Service Commission and management boards will be required to invite the successful candidates to interviews at selected educational facilities in every particular subcounty


The Selection Panel will be expected to operate at the highest level of transparency and accountability, as set out in the Code of Conduct for Public Authorities, and the TSC Code of Conduct and Ethics 2015.



The Head of Institutions is required to include panel members in the relevant sections of the Act and CORT 2015 of choice.
