The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) aims to recruit a total of 211,870 teachers over the next five (5) years, either as interns or on permanent and pensionable terms.
During the launch of TSC Strategic Plan 2023-2027 at Kenya School of Government in Lower Kabete, Nairobi, CEO Nancy Macharia revealed that the strategic plan prioritizes the welfare of teachers.
“In the strategic plan 2023-27, we have a keen interest in the welfare of our main stakeholders, who are teachers, as they ultimately shape learners’ lives,” she stated.
Macharia stated that successful implementation of the new Strategic Plan over the five years will require an additional budget of Ksh 134,493,190,000.
The TSC boss acknowledged the commission’s significant progress in the journey towards professionalism of the teaching service under the previous Strategic Plan.
“As we launch today, we must recognize that the commission has made major strides under the strategic plan 2019-2023. We have achieved tremendous gains in the journey towards professionalism of the teaching service,” stated Macharia.
“We are pleased that TSC has introduced a new vision, ‘A motivated, ethical, and globally competitive teacher.’ This alone fills every teacher in this county with pride,” stated Johnson Nzioka, National Chairman of Kenya Primary Schools Heads Association (KEPSHA), who was also present.
“We will be empowered to be globally competitive and ethical. This plan will elevate the excellence of teachers to the next level. We will collaborate with you (TSC) to ensure the objectives and vision of this plan are achieved,” added Nzioka.
