TSC wishes to advise teachers and the general public of the fake internship job advert circulating on social media platforms
In a post on their official Facebook pages and Twitter, The Head of Communication Beatrice Wababu has made it clear that TSC has not placed any such advert anywhere.
FAKE INTERNS ADVERT;
“We wish to advise teachers and the general public to ignore a fake jobs advert circulating on social media and purporting that there are 12,000 intern jobs. TSC has not placed any such advert anywhere. We will communicate through our official channels when new job vacancies arise.”
In the advert, the tutors were expected to serve for a year and was aimed at supporting teacher training institutions to sustain the competencies of new trainees.
The applicants were also promised a Ksh15,000 monthly remuneration for primary teachers and Ksh20,000 for those at secondary school level.
“The programme specifically targets unemployed teachers who will be assigned to learning institutions where their teaching experience will be enhanced through exposure to direct practical work experience,” stated the advertisement in part.
This comes just a day after rumours swirled across social media that 17,000 teachers were set to retire to usher in the new crop.
Currently, the commission is in the middle of a hiring process for the 11,574 jobs that were advertised early September.
Complains have been lodged by Teachers who graduated in 2019 claiming that they were only allocated 15%, with those who graduated in 2020 getting a paltry 10marks in the grading.
As a result, chaos were experienced in Budalangi, Busia County, after some of the applicants were mistreated in various recruitment centres .
