    Although the Teachers Service Commission was established in 1967, its history dates back to the 1950s when teachers led by retired President Daniel T Moi vigorously fought for the formation of one teacher body.

    Following the formation of the first teachers union in Kenya – the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) in 1957 there was sustained agitation for the creation of an umbrella body to manage the affairs of all teachers. At the time, teachers were employed by either; missionaries, local authorities or the Central Government which led to a great disparity in remuneration and other terms and conditions of service. In 1964, The Kenya Education Commission Report (The Ominde Report) strongly supported the need for a competent, respected and contented teaching force.



    The Teachers Service Commission is advertising 8,672 posts for recruitment of teachers to address the 100% transition from primary to secondary schools.

    Eligible candidates should meet the following basic requirements:

    • Be Kenya citizens.
    • Must be 45 years of age and below.
    • Must have original Professional and Academic Certificates.
    • Must be registered with the Teachers Service Commission.

    a) Applicants applying for posts in Primary schools must be holders of P1 certificate. Interested candidates should apply to the TSC County Director, in the County where a vacancy has been advertised and submit all relevant academic and professional documents. Those who had applied earlier and were unsuccessful must apply afresh since a new merit list for 2018/2019 financial year will be generated. Successful candidates will be deployed to serve in any part of the country.

    b) Applicants applying for posts in Secondary Schools must be holders of a minimum of Diploma in Education Certificate. Interested candidates should apply to the Secretary, Board of Management of the school where a vacancy has been advertised and submit a copy of the application to the TSC County Director.

    Method of Application

    All interested candidates should submit their applications to the respective County Directors and Boards of Management as above not later than 25th May, 2018.

    The Teachers Service Commission is an equal opportunity employer and people with disability are encouraged to apply.

    The Teachers Service Commission will only deal with TSC County Directors and Boards of

    Management in this exercise. Direct application to the Commission will NOT be considered.

    Successful applicants MUST NOT fill employment forms in more than one station as this will lead to disqualification.


    The recruitment exercise is free of charge. The Teachers Service Commission would wish to caution applicants against fraudsters who might extort money from unsuspecting persons purporting to assist in having them employed.

    Any fraudulent activity should be reported to the nearest police station, or to Teachers Service

    Commission headquarters through the following hotlines between 8.00a.m and 5.00p.m.
