TSC mass transfers have been approved before January school reopening.
TSC Teacher Mass Transfers. Large-scale teacher transfers are being approved by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) in an attempt to reallocate delocalized instructors before the next term of instruction starts.
Based on data gathered from the Commission’s offices, requests for transfers—both regional and interregional—are submitted to make transfers easier in December and the first part of January.
At the regional level, teachers are moved between counties that are part of the same area. TSC Regional Directors are in charge of these transfers.
Teachers who want to be transferred to counties outside of their stationed region must get their transfer requests approved by TSC transfer boards at the national level.
Approximately 26,871 educators are requesting to return to their native counties. Due to inadequate placements, the teachers did not succeed in the prior mass transfers.
TSC Mass Transfers Of Teachers
Only 20,055 of the approximately 46,926 primary and secondary school teachers who had sought to be returned to their home counties were actually moved back as of June 30.
Before approving a transfer request, the commission transfer policy makes sure that the teacher is leaving their current station and that there is a vacancy at their desired station.
Prior to approving a teacher’s transfer, TSC makes sure there are appropriate openings, acceptable replacements, and a staff balance.
Education CS Mr Ezekiel Machogu when he appeared in Parliament noted that TSC, in the exercise of its mandate to transfer and post teachers, it has “to ensure equitable distribution and optimal utilisation of teachers in all public basic education institutions to ensure that learners throughout the country have access to quality education as required by Article 43 of the Constitution.”
“Teachers who wish to be considered for transfer from one institution to another must submit a request.
The transfer of teachers from one institution to another will be guided by the need for equitable distribution and optimum utilisation of teachers,” the CS said.
Other transfer criteria include the availability of vacancies in the proposed station, the need for replacement, existing staffing norms, medical reasons or other reasons that the TSC may consider.
Delocalized teachers can check the online TSC transfer application portal on the status of their applied transfers.
TSC Mass Transfers Of Teachers
Successful teachers will have to visit their TSC County offices to pick their transfer letters and report to their new station in January.
TERMS RELATED TO ONLINE TRANSFER YOU SHOULD KNOW
Pending: This is displayed once the teacher’s application is successfully delivered awaiting remarks from respective supervisors.
Acknowledged: This is displayed if the teacher is eligible for transfer and awaiting the availability of vacancy and or the teacher’s suitable replacement.
Not Approved: This is same as when the teacher’s request is regretted. This is applicable if the teacher has not met conditions set as per the transfer policy for example having not served in the current station for a period of not less than five years since first appointment, lack of suitable replacement or vacancy.
Approved: This is displayed after the transfer committee approves the teachers transfer request. The teachers transfer letter is then issued through the Principal in the case of post primary institutions and through the County Director in the case of primary school.
A transfer request that is withdrawn just indicates that it was unsuccessful or that it was approved and that a new one may now be submitted.
129 non-local teachers who were employed by the North Eastern Region’s counties (Garissa, Mandera, and Wajir) and were transferred to other areas were suspended by the TSC.
After the teachers neglected to return to their posts as requested by TSC, they were sent letters of interdiction. The hearing for this matter is scheduled for December.
To alleviate teacher shortages in some regions of the nation, eliminate conflicts of interest in school management, and foster national cohesion and integration, TSC implemented delocalization, which involved moving instructors to schools outside of their hometowns.
