Teacher Registration and Recruitment Guidelines in Kenya – Education Reforms

Teacher Registration and Recruitment

Teacher recruitment is important for, among others, increasing the number of teachers on a demand basis and replacing those who exit the service. Teachers are recruited as permanent and pensionable; interns; or on contractual terms.

The recruitment is done based on demand and availability of funds. The TSC has structured recruitment
guidelines for different categories of teachers. The Primary school teacher recruitment process is decentralised, but posting is done by the County Director’s office or by delegation to the Sub-Counties. Secondary school and teacher training college tutors are recruited and posted at the decentralised recruitment point by the Boards of Management as a delegated responsibility by TSC. These are shown in Table below
