TSC Announces The Following New Promotion Slots For The Following Teachers


The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will this year promote 12,634 teachers.

CEO Nancy Macharia said they will spend at least Sh2.2 billion to promote the teachers who have stagnated in the same job group for many years.

Dr Macharia said Sh600 million will be used to move 4,595 primary school teachers, currently in Job Group C1, to Job Group C2.

Another Sh400 million will be used to promote 2,637 graduate teachers to Group C4 from Group C3. Over Sh175 million will be needed to promote 652 graduate teachers in Grade D3 to Grade D4.

“Another 4,750 diploma teachers in Job Group C2 will require Sh1 million to be promoted to Job Group C3,” she told the National Assembly Education Committee.

The education committee’s chairman Julius Melly urged the commission to compensate and promote teachers who had stagnated in the same job group for many years as well as those who have been working in an acting capacity.

“How will the teachers who have been acting as principals, deputies or heads of a department be compensated? Failing to promote them means their retirement package will be affected,” Melly said

Macharia said the stagnation of teachers in the same job groups was due to the lack of funds and asked the government to provide the Sh2,175,038,528 they needed to carry out the teacher promotion.

“We have been unable to promote teachers because of financial constraints. The commission has not received funds to promote teachers since the implementation of the 2021-2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement CBA. This has tainted the commission’s image,” Macharia said.
