B). AWARDING OF MARKS BASED ON LENGTHY OF STAY SINCE QUALIFYING AS A TEACHER.

The marking scheme in this area favours those teachers who have stayed at home for longer periods since qualifying as a teacher. The maximum score for this area is 25 percent.

The year of completion of professional training (BED or PGDE) whose certificate is used for scoring in part A of the score sheet determines the length of stay but not the year of enhancement.

C). AWARDING OF MARKS BASED ON COMMUNICATION AND OTHER ABILITIES

This section is very important as many candidates tie on parts A and B. This part, therefore, is used to break ties. You must be well versed with TSC and current affairs apart from having a clear understanding of your teaching areas.

You, at the same time, must have certified co-curricular certificates to ensure you scoop the maximum 5 marks in this section. Please note that no candidate should score zero in this area.

  5. Anthony Barasa

    marking scheme. is good

  6. Miriam

    I don’t like the criteria tsc is using some of went to college immediately after form four and graduated at 20 we were not securing jobs because of age… Attaining the required age of 30 and after staying for 10 yrs you again change the score sheet to favour the interns yet internship is not again given to all of us……What should I do now…am very much dissappointed .

  7. Johna

    it’s too sorrowful when intern posts were given to young and teachers who recently completed their course,yet a teacher like I with 10+yes outside lugs off as SCDEs considered trs of my like would be absorbed soon,am too frustrated. Again does gov’t believe that there aren’t teachers aged 35yrs & above who were blocked by internship? TSC should remember we also have families and they require us too Johna Maua

  8. Geoffrey.

    I would like to inquire how scoring is done for one who first graduated as a diploma teacher and further enhanced degree. Kindly assist.Thanks in advance.
