As the January 2, 2019 teachers’ strike looms large, their employer says it is hiring.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) on Thursday said it was recruiting 1,197 teachers to replace those who have exited the service through natural attrition in the last three months.

Some 893 vacancies are in primary schools and 304 in secondary schools, said the commission's Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia.
Mrs Macharia said eligible candidates should be Kenya citizens aged 45 and below.
They must have original professional and academic certificates and be registered as teachers as per Section 23 of the Teachers Service Commission Act of 2012.
“Applicants for vacancies in primary schools must be holders of the P1 certificate. They will be selected from the county merit lists compiled during the May 2018 recruitment of additional teachers,” she said.
“Applicants for vacancies in post primary institutions must be holders of a minimum of a diploma in education."

The teachers in the merit list are those who underwent interviews and have been awaiting posting.
Interested candidates were asked to send their applications, no later than January 4, to the secretaries of the boards of institutions with vacancies and submit copies of their documents to the TSC county directors.
Successful candidates will be deployed to any part of the country, the CEO noted.
