New TSC Score Sheet for Recruitment and Replacement, Employment Guidelines, 2020

The TSC recently released an updated score sheet for the recruitment of qualified teachers on a permanent and pensionable scheme. According to the TSC score sheet, teachers with masters and first class in education stand a better chance of securing the teacher job.

However, qualified teachers with subject combinations like mathematics/physics, computer/mathematics, biology/chemistry, and chemistry physics are better placed to get jobs since the applicants are normally very few.
