TSC intern interviews for bgm schools has been on going in various selected centers.
The interviews have been characterised with low turn out .
Some schools have even missed those to be interviewed .
Other cases graduands of last year and this year are the ones that turned up.
Its shocking in country with the highest unemployment rate to experience low interview turnout.
Something is wrong somewhere.
I was in attendance in one center as a panelist.
After the TSC subcounty addressed the applicants a dozen of them just left.
THE DIRECTOR’S Highlighted the following.
1) Interns are to earn 15k for sec schools. And 10 k for pri schools.
2) They are to work for one year and incase of replacement vacancies they shall not participate.
3) Any other TSC vacancies in the course of the year contracted interns shall not be elligible.
4) The money they shall earn shall be subject to tax. NHIF . NSSF
Insurance cover and HELB loan deductions.
Compared to Boms where some get above 20 k NET untaxable many of them saw this as a raw deal.
On permanent employment ” the director told them that it will not be automatic but in future TSC interns will be awarded more marks.
It Was for these reasons many of them left despite many having applied in dozens. Each school had a TSC short list of over 20 applications.
Many who had benchmarked with PSC where interns get 25 k
the TSC was just unattractive.
