Updated TSC Scoresheet For Replacement of Teachers-Next Week, February 2022.
Recently the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) announced 2,945 vacancies to replace teachers exiting the teaching service through natural attrition. Of the total number,2,053 teachers will fill vacant positions left in primary schools while 892 tutors will be posted in secondary schools across the country. The teachers will serve on permanent and pensionable terms.
In the February 2022 recruitment TSC clarified that primary school teachers will not apply for the replacement vacancies through the online platform but will be selected from the merit list compiled during the recruitment of additional teachers in July 2021.
“In the January 2022 advertisement on natural attrition, primary school teachers will be selected from the merit list compiled during the recruitment of additional teachers – July 2021,” read the statement.
This therefore leaves TSC registered but unemployed secondary school teachers on crossroads on the criteria the Commission will use to select teachers who will fill the few vacancies.
According to the recruitment roadmap, TSC county directors collected employment from the commission on Friday,28th January .The commission is expected to generate a merit list by the end of week which will be worked upon by recruitment panels in schools where vacancies were declared between Friday 11th February and Thursday 17th February 2022.
