Gazetted hardship areas in Kenya By TSC [UPDATED] + Allowances

Gazetted hardship areas in Kenya By TSC [UPDATED]

The Teacher Service Commission (TSC) is a body that employs and dismisses teachers in Kenya. For primary school recruitment, the body can post a teacher in any school in Kenya, regardless of whether the teacher applied for that school or not.

However, secondary school teachers have the privilege of choosing a school to be employed since their vacancies are advertised publicly.

Despite the fact that teachers working in certain regions in Kenya are paid hardship allowances, the kind of risks they face are life-threatening. Apart from harsh climatic conditions, insecurity is one factor that qualifies a place to be mapped under hardship areas.

Teachers in hardships regions face myriads of problems ranging from poor infrastructures to shockingly bad working conditions. The following are counties (sub-counties) that have been mapped by the commission as hardship areas for teachers in Kenya;
