Teachers who responded to the TSC’s call for a Diploma in Primary Teacher Education (DIPTE) and successfully completed the program will be given preference during the Teachers Service Commission’s next and future recruitment interviews (TSC).
Currently, approximately 229,000 teachers are pursuing DIPTE in various accredited Teacher Training Colleges (TTC) across the country.
TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia, expressed her happiness the cohort, who will soon graduate, during the release of KCSE results. Macharia confirmed that the upon graduation, the freshly graduated DIPTE cohort will help in implementing the new curriculum.
A good number of Commission officials have joined Nancy Macharia in praising the P1 teachers who opted to upgrade their teaching skills and are soon graduating with DIPTE this year.
Last week, TSC Coast Regional Director in charge of Quality Assurance and Standards, Mr.David Nganyi, assured the trainee teachers who are undergoing the program that they will be offered first hand employment upon successful graduation.
Nganyi who was speaking during the Kenya Teachers Colleges Sports Association (KTCA) Coast Region Athletics Championship held at Shanzu TTC, said there is no way TSC could employ the unskilled when there are skilled ones out there.
“We are eagerly waiting for you, as soon as you graduate, we will directly absorb you so long as you have passed all the units,” said Nganyi.
