TSC Promotion Letters to Be Sent to Teachers This Week.

More than 36,000 teachers who submitted and were interviewed for advancements last year will be receiving their promotion letters this week, according to CEO of the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Nancy Macharia.

After pursuing advancements in elementary, secondary, and teacher training institutions, the teachers experienced years of work group stagnation.

Interviews conducted in December of last year raised concerns about the excessive delay in their promotions, which were exacerbated by the TSC’s lack of proactive communication about the difficulties they were facing.

An explanation was given last week, pointing out that processing the more than 30,000 teachers on the shortlist was an enormous task that unavoidably prolonged the time required to gather the required data.

Macharia declared that 20,000 more instructors will be hired during the upcoming fiscal year.

With a one billion shilling investment for teacher promotion, the commission plans to post 6,000 more job ads this fiscal year.

A further 20,000 teachers will be hired on a contract basis this year, and the 46,000 intern teachers who are already employed under contract will change to permanent and pensionable terms after two years of service.

Additionally, Macharia talked on the TSC Amendment Bill (2024) and its proposed changes to the law, stressing the importance of continuing stakeholder consultations prior to the Bill’s introduction into Parliament.

Both the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) and the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) have applauded these moves, saying they were long overdue.

Akello Misori, Secretary General of KUPPET, emphasized the necessity of progressive advancements while pointing out the protracted stagnation that many teachers face.

KNUT SG Collins Oyuu underlined how crucial it is that promoted teachers receive reimbursement from the TSC for whatever arrears they have accumulated since being eligible for promotion.
