The Teachers Service Commission, decided to employ teachers through an internship program in an effort to fill staffing shortfalls at public primary and secondary schools that were still being worked out.
Under this program new , teachers would be employed temporarily to serve alongside permanent, pensionable teachers.
Even if both groups carry out the same teaching duties, teacher interns receive substantially less in monthly benefits than their permanent colleagues.
While in the process of hiring of teachers for elementary and secondary schools, the intern teachers are given access to nine documents, that are listed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
The commission requires teachers employed through its internship program to be on staff for a full year (1 year).
However, the intern teachers are welcomed whenever TSC posts employment openings for permanent positions.
