Abstract

This study assess the recruitment and retention strategies in private secondary school in Tanzania. A case of Ilala municipal of Dar es Salaam. The specific objectives of the study were; to examine the recruitment process in private secondary schools, to identify the strategic and policies used in recruitment and retention of teachers in the private secondary schools, to find out challenges encountered in recruitment and retention of teachers in private secondary school. To achieve these objectives and answer research questions related to them, a purposive sampling technique was used with questionnaire and interview as a technique for data collection. A sample size of 50 respondents who were private school owners, headmasters as well as teachers were interviewed. Through data analysis using SPSS version 16.0. Majority 56%of respondents are not satisfied by the selection technique. As most teachers position were not advertised through local newspapers. Employees seek equitable pay for their work. The finding showed that most employees were not happy with the part of salary, housing allowances and rent allowances, therefore the School`s management should first look into how they can improve the quality of service in providing these allowances. Most of the employees are not familiar with the performance based pay scheme and do not understand what they are required to do to benefit from it and therefore it’s recommended that the management of the schools should clearly explained this scheme to the different categories of staff of the school. It’s recommended that the school management improves these conditions prior to increasing staff numbers. Hence it’s suggested that the different trainings should be specified to the specific career of the individuals in the school, staff should be given a forum to suggest which programs would be appropriate for them. Furthermore promotional chances should be increased.
