Teachers Service Commission Plans To Export Teachers

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is engaging in discussions with the Ministry of Labor, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and various other parties to facilitate the placement of educators in overseas positions.

Calvin Anyuor, the Legal Director of TSC, has expressed that Kenya currently has an excess of teachers, and facilitating their employment opportunities overseas could be beneficial.

‘’We have started engaging key stakeholders to export the teaching resource because we have a surplus of teachers in the country.

“We are engaging the Ministry of Labour, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and other relevant government agencies so that our teachers can go and teach English in Germany,” Anyuor said.

Anyuor also mentioned that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is actively pursuing opportunities to establish markets for the country’s teachers across different nations.

This news brings relief to numerous educators who have not yet found employment through the TSC.

“The question is, what is the quality of the teacher you are exporting to Germany? Once he lands in Germany, is he able to deliver in a manner that can withstand the rigors of education in the world?” Anyuor posed.

“When it comes to teaching, the stakeholders want extremely low grades, but when it comes to Medicine or Law the grades are high and no one is complaining. So, you want the quality of the teacher to be low but you want this teacher to produce an engineer or a pilot,” he added.

At present, the TSC employs more than 400,000 teachers, and it aims to recruit 46,000 teacher interns on a permanent and pensionable basis by the following year.

The interns are almost completing their two years contract program.
