The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has issued a stern warning to school Principals against locking out some applicants in the ongoing teachers’ recruitment exercise. This is after it emerged that some applicants who had been shortlisted failed to receive invitations to the interviews.
In some schools less than five applicants were invited against a total of over 15 as per the TSC merit lists. The lists of shortlisted candidates for some schools are also conspicuously missing.
“It has been realized that some school heads collaborating with some Directors have converted the whole process (of recruitment) into personal business. The Commission has received complains from applicants for not accessing the merit lists for a number of schools,” says a note from the Commission.
The Commission has ordered the school heads, County and Sub County Directors to make the lists public and ensure that all shortlisted applicants are invited for interviews.
About 300,000 teachers submitted their applications to fill the advertised 11,000 vacancies in primary and secondary schools.
According to the released recruitment timelines, the County selection process and filling of application for employment forms by successful candidates will be done between Thursday October 8, 2020 and Wednesday October 14, 2020.
