Updated List of TSC Hardship Counties & their Sub-counties, Areas for Teachers in Kenya

Teacher Service Commission (TSC) is a Kenyan authority that hires and fires teachers. For primary school recruiting, the organization has the authority to place a teacher in any Kenyan school, regardless of whether or not the teacher applied for that school.


The secondary school teachers, on the other hand, have the option of choosing where they work because their positions are published openly.

The cases of insecurity is one factor that qualifies a location to be designated as a hardship area, aside from poor meteorological circumstances.
