A couple of months ago as reported by The Sauce, TSC was looking to hire 5,000 teachers for both Primary and Secondary schools.

Primary schools, which have about 10 million pupils, are short of 38,054 teachers, while secondary schools, which are grappling with a huge enrolment surge driven by the government’s campaign to achieve a 100 per cent transition from primary, have vacancies for 58,291. This means that the basic education segment has a deficit of 96,345 teachers, according to TSC figures.
