Teachers who are hired through the internship program are obligated to serve for a year with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). It’s crucial to remember, however, that intern teachers are entitled to apply for permanent jobs advertised by TSC.
Unsatisfactory performance or inability to adhere to the Internship’s rules of behavior may result in the internship being terminated at the Commission’s or an Officer’s or Agent’s decision.
The internship is non-remunerative, according to the TSC internship agreement. Interns, on the other hand, shall receive a stipend as set by the Commission from time to time. The Commission will make financial provisions in this regard on an annual basis.
When TSC announced internship contracts for teachers, it was met with a lot of protest and criticism.
The criticism came from both within and outside the school system, with some Kenyans even taking the matter to court in order to have the entire exercise invalidated.
Poor remuneration for intern teachers was one of the major concerns that sparked outrage over the problem of hiring teachers on internship contracts.
Intern teachers in secondary schools are paid a stipend of 20,000 shillings. This sum is subject to two deductions: 200.00 shillings for the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) and 750.00 shillings for the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF). The total amount deducted is 950.00 shillings.
After all deductions, the teacher’s take-home pay is 19,050.00 shillings.
