The Commission is targeting to employ over 80,000 interns to help reduce the staff shortages in public primary and secondary schools that have been occasioned by introduction of free education.

Their counterparts in Primary schools will pocket a gross salary of Kes 10,000 monthly.

In the past, TSC has given preference to teachers employed on contracts when filling permanent and pensionable vacancies. It is expected that the recruited interns would thus be employed on permanent basis when the vacancies are advertised.
