The Teachers Service Commission is recruiting 1,730 teachers to replace those who have left the profession.

Some 1,346 are for primary schools while 390 will be posted to secondary schools and colleges, said chief executive Nancy Macharia.

“The new teachers will replace those who have exited service between March and June this year,” she said in a statement.

The commission last month hired 5,000 new teachers, bringing its workforce to 312,000 for the 10.2 million learners in the 28,000 public secondary and primary schools countrywide.

In primary schools, Kakamega will get 90 primary school teachers — the most — while Isiolo will get five, the fewest.
