TSC Internship Scoresheet Guidelines October 2021

Teachers Service Commission has released new guidelines that will be used to recruit intern teachers for the month of October.

Unemployed teachers who scored second class lower will have something to smile about after the commission levelled their marks with those who scored second class upper. This is the second time in a row the teachers’ employer is awarding second class upper and second class upper same marks.

Other than quality of the certificate, length of stay after graduation will play crucial role in the forthcoming recruitment exercise. Those teachers who graduated 2012 and before will be awarded the highest score while those who graduated 2020 and after will be awarded the least marks.
