Unemployed teachers asked to submit their details to TSC

24 October 2013, 13:53 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - The Teachers’ Service Commission (TSC) has asked unemployed graduate teachers who had registered in the various counties for employment to present their details to the education offices in their respective sub-Counties in readiness for next year’s recruitment.

The teachers are supposed to submit to their employers the details of their qualifications and year of graduation so as to help the TSC with budgeting.

Speaking to journalists on Wednesday, Vihiga County TSC director, Paul Kokello, said that the details will help the commission in establishing the number of teachers who were left out and need to be employed.

“We want all the unemployed teachers to be accounted for in the next year’s budget and that is why we are taking their details early,” Kokello said.

The director said that TSC acknowledges the acute shortage of teachers in the country and is concerned with the welfare of those who are qualified and not yet employed.

He noted that the TSC now wants to create a reliable data bank so that they can plan appropriately for the teachers.

“We have been relying on rumours that there are a lot of teachers out there on the streets who are yet to be employed. We now want to actualise the number so that no one feels rejected after toiling for many years in school and qualifying to be a teacher,” said Kokello.

The teachers will be required to submit their details to their respective sub-County offices not later than October 28.

He further urged the government to increase the allocation that is set aside for the recruitment of teachers because many regions have to do without the requisite number of teachers.

He said that many schools are suffering and have to employ teachers through the Board of Governors that then transfer the burden to the parents.

“The parents need to be relieved of the need to pay teachers. We want the government to increase funding to us so that we can employ enough teachers for the schools,” he said.
