It is the goal and aspiration of every graduate to be absorbed by the Teachers Service Commission upon graduation. However, some subject combinations have proven futile to graduates as they are flooded. Graduates hence become disillusioned, frustrated and desperate. TSC does not absorb these combinations fast;
Despite having a language that is compulsory in all High Schools, this combination has remained flooded making graduate teachers to stay for as long as 5 years without being employed by the TSC. Students going to the university should avoid this combination like a plague for now.
2) Mathematics/Business Studies.
Another combination that has remained disappointing over the years is this. It is reported that 4 years is the minimum number of years you will stay without permanent employment. For now this combination should be avoided until further notice.
Another combination that has demoralized teachers is Religion and History. Due to its nature of comprising only optional subjects, it has remained to be the lowest sought for by employers.
This combination comprises of purely optional subjects and is rarely advertised by the Teachers Service Commission. Hence it takes the longest of times for someone to be absorbed by TSC
The nature of Mathematics is that it is stroked /accompanies various other subjects including Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Business Studies, Computer and Physical Education. Therefore, Geography being the only humanity that accompanies Mathematics makes it difficult to be employed by TSC.
Even as the Cabinet Secretary of Education Prof Magoha is set to release KCSE exams anytime from now, students aspiring to do Education course should be advised not to do subject combinations that will bring them frustration upon graduation.
