The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has released the dates when newly recruited teachers will receive their posting letters and report to their new stations. All newly recruited teachers will be posted to their new palaces of work by 30th August 2021 where they will be working on permanent and pensionable terms.
According to the Teachers Service Commission, TSC, teachers will be issued with posting letters by their Sub-County Directors before reporting to their new station of work.
The posting letters will indicate the school the teacher has been posted to. Teachers will also get appointment letters from their TSC county offices. The appointment letters will state the job grade the teacher has been appointed to and the salary scale they will enjoy.
TSC said the newly recruited teachers will be expected to take the offer of employment within 30 days by ensuring that a causality return is filled and submitted to the commission headquarter.
From 13th August to Friday 27th, 2021, the Commission will carry out verification of documents it receives from its County Directors.
The County Directors will submit a report on the status of teachers who reported or failed to report to their station to the TSC headquarters. The report should be submitted by 30th September 2021.
