To qualify for the secondary school slots, the teacher should have a minimum of a Diploma in Education.

The circular clarifies that the teachers applying for the slots should be either residents of Garissa, Mandera and Wajir counties or be teaching under the Board of Management.

“Interested and qualified candidates should submit their applications through the TSC website – under the ‘Careers’ category or through,” the circular reads.
