TSC Interns confirmed on PnP Terms
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has decided to recruit all teachers currently serving as interns on permanent and pensionable (PnP) terms of service.
The total number of employment forms for PnP will include serving teacher interns who are set to be recruited directly.
Those teacher interns serving in secondary schools will be deployed to teach in Junior Secondary Schools within the counties where they have been serving.
For primary school teacher interns, upon employment, they will be retained in their current station or be deployed to any primary school where their services are needed within the counties or regions where they have been serving.
County Directors are required to prepare a list of all serving interns within their counties who are currently on payroll and have not been absorbed on PnP terms. These teachers will fill out Application for Employment forms and be given Offer of Employment Letters before the main recruitment begins.
