TSC Replacement 2020: The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will employ teachers to replace those who left the profession in the last quarter of last year through natural attrition countrywide.
The replacement of 529 secondary school teachers who exited service due to natural attrition will cover the months of September, October, November and December 2019.
The vacancies in post-primary institutions have been listed according to the schools where they are available and the subject combinations needed.
“Successful candidates will be deployed to serve in any part of the country, and not necessarily in the county where they were recruited,” TSC CEO Nancy Macharia said.

Teacher shortage stands at about 95,000, and has greatly hampered the successful implementation of the 100 per cent transition from primary school policy.
Primary schools, which have about 10 million pupils, are short of 38,054 teachers, while secondary schools, which are grappling with a huge enrolment surge driven by the government’s campaign to achieve a 100 per cent transition from primary, have vacancies for 58,291.
This means that the basic education segment is beleaguered by a shortfall of 96,345, according to TSC figures.
Polytechnics and Technical and Vocational Education Training institutions, which hold more than 180,000 trainees, have a shortfall of 5,000 tutors, while universities will lose more than 4,000 lecturers if the government implements a policy outlawing master’s degree holders from lecturing.
