Recruitment and Selection
Recruitment of teachers by the Commission is demand driven and has been decentralized to TSC County for primary schools and Board of Management for post-primary institutions.
Process of recruitment and selection
- The Commission will advertise available vacancies and interested candidates will be required to submit application forms to the county/institutions where they would wish to be considered for employment.
- Short listed candidates will be invited to appear before the recruitment panel.
- Successful candidates will fill employment forms.
- Agents will submit completed forms and merit lists to TSC headquarters
The Commission will vet the recruitment documents in accordance with the guidelines and:
- Inform the recruiting agents of the outcome of the vetting process.
- Issue appointment letters to successful candidates. Failure to take up the appointment within the stipulated period will automatically lead to cancellation of appointment.

Salaries are returned to the Commission due to:
- Closure of your current bank account before the new one is operational.
- Recalling of salary by the Commission.
Any returned salary should be claimed in writing through the head of institution.
An employee is required to notify the Commission of any erroneous payment. Where the over payment is as result of death, the next of kin should notify the bank immediately. To prevent over payment, Heads of institutions should report cases of death and absenteeism within 48 hours.
Recovery of over payment

- In reinstatement cases, outstanding over payment will be recovered in full
- In cases of retirement or death, any government liability is recovered in full from pension benefits or gratuity.
This applies to teachers who have attained 60 years. A notice will be issued two years before the date of retirement. The Commission may issue a shorter retirement notice under special circumstances.
