In a statement TSC Boss Dr. Nancy Macharia noted that teachers who are currently serving in the internship will not eligible.

“Serving teacher interns are not eligible to apply. For detailed information on the application procedure and the available vacancies per County and institution, you are advised to visit the TSC Website,” said TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia.

It is increasingly clear that most Board of Management (BOM) pay not more than Ksh 10,000 monthly to its employees.

It is ridiculous to serve for a whole year as an intern teacher and thereafter you only end up being employed by a school Board of management. This is the worst thing to even imagine especially in the wake of covid-19 pandemic where schools are literally not stable to pay its employees.
