TSC to Convert 26,000 Intern Teachers to Permanent Contracts

The Kenya Union of Post Primary Edcation Teachers (KUPPET) says that TSC has agreed to convert all 26,000 intern teachers hired in 2023 to permanent and pensionable contracts by January 2025.

KUPPET Secretary General Akelo Misori voiced worry over understaffing in schools, particularly at JSS, where just two teachers per stream are presently responsible for all curriculum areas.

During the meeting, Misori stated that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has pledged to hire 20,000 new junior secondary school teachers.

Out of this number, 2,000 primary school teachers will be placedin Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) this fiscal year. This comes after the union expressed concern over understaffing in public schools.

On the matter of recent teacher promotions, which sparked outrage even among their Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) counterparts, KUPPET stated that they had reviewed the complete list and determined that the TSC teacher promotions were appropriate.
