To work as a teacher in Kenya, successful applicants will require a Masters or Bachelor’s Degree in Education or a subject relevant to their line of teaching. Additionally, a Teaching Qualification is mandatory and at least 2 years of teaching experience are needed. Only native speakers of English whom have been trained in the west (US, UK, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa) will be accepted.
Candidates with international experience are preferred, additionally, although TEFL and other certificates are not considered full teaching qualifications, having one alongside your degree and teaching qualification will largely boost your chances of being placed.
