The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has announced the deployment of teachers from primary to Junior Secondary School (JSS).

In a statement on Tuesday, February 20, TSC called on teachers serving under permanent and pensionable terms of service in public primary schools with requisite qualifications to apply.

“The Commission is deploying teachers to Junior School. Those who wish to be deployed are encouraged to apply,” read the statement in part.

TSC noted that the deadline for the application will be on March 18, 2024.

Teachers interested in being deployed to JSS are required to visit https://t.co/omcJNElMIH, and submit their credentials including the TSC number and the ID number.

The announcement comes a month after TSC CEO Nancy Macharia admitted that junior secondary schools are struggling with teacher shortages.

Macharia disclosed that there is a shortage of 42,117 teachers, with only 56,928 teachers available for the needed 99,045.

The TSC boss also pointed out that there is an excess of 18,194 teachers in primary schools that the commission plans to redistribute to schools facing understaffing to maintain the recommended 1:40 teacher-learner ratio.
