“I wish to assure the country that the Commission will immediately embark on the exercise to recruit the teachers to ensure that they report to work as soon as possible, to ease the existing teacher-shortage in schools,” she said.

 

Macharia announced that the Commission aims at training all the 116,024 high school teachers by end of 2022. Some 56,024 secondary school teachers are yet to be trained on CBC.

 

“The public should be well-assured that all our teachers in secondary schools will have been tooled by January (2023)to welcome the junior secondary school students,” she said.

 

Also to be trained on CBC, are all the 229,292 teachers in primary schools.

 

The TSC chief said 1,594 school heads, who were scheduled to retire in either 2020 or 2021, but extended their contracts to avert a leadership crisis as a result of Covid-19 pandemic, can now proceed on retirement.

 

The vacancies that they will leave behind will be filled by January 2023, said Macharia.

 

The school heads include secondary school principals and primary school head teachers.

 

Macharia also hailed 16,000 teachers who, despite being advised to stay at home due to Covid-19, braved the risks of the disease and reported physically to work.
