In our Friday’s issue of The Standard, we carried a story indicating that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has employed 8,141 tutors on permanent and pensionable terms.
We have since established that this is the number of intern teachers hired.
The Commission has, however, recruited 8,920 teachers on permanent and pensionable terms.
TSC targeted to hire 10,300 interns and 9,069 teachers. Consequently, the commission is still processing 2,159 interns who will soon be put on payroll.
- 1 Court refuses to award tutor in degree dispute
- 2 Radical changes to student admissions, teacher hiring
- 3 State to establish employment bureaus
- 4 What is GDP and why does it matter to your small business?
Also being processed are 149 teachers to be hired on permanent and pensionable terms.
We apologise to the commission for the error.
