Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has warned that they will not consider manual applications. Persons with disabilities (PWDs) are encouraged to apply for the slots as TSC is an equal opportunity employer.

The Salary Increment

As the internship is not a remunerative engagement, teacher interns have deservedly gotten a lift in their monthly stipend. Interns in Primary Schools will take home Kshs. 15,000 while their secondary school counterparts will get Ksh. 20,000.

Note that this amount is subject to statutory deductions. The statutory deductions are likely to reduce the amount by a small amount.

Internship Certificate

Every Intern gets an Internship Certificate after completion of their internship.
