TSC to Allocate Sh2.2 Billion for Teacher Promotions


The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) in Kenya has announced that it will allocate Sh2.2 billion to promote over 14,000 teachers.

The move is in response to the stagnation outcry from teachers who have attained higher qualifications but have not been promoted.

TSC CEO Nancy Macharia told MPs that the promotion of teachers is an urgent matter, and the Commission has received several requests for promotion from teachers.

The Commission has not received promotion funds since the implementation of the 2021-2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), which has damaged its reputation.

Macharia noted that the promotion of teachers in different job cadres required Sh2.2 billion, and the Commission prioritizes the promotion of teachers to address the stagnation outcry.

In addition to the promotions, TSC had advertised 13,713 positions for principals, deputy principals, senior masters, secondary teachers, head teachers, and deputy head teachers in secondary and primary schools.

The Commission had also announced 1,021 vacancies for teachers to be deployed as principals, deputy principals, head teachers, and deputy head teachers in arid and semi-arid lands and hard-to-staff counties.

These areas include Baringo, Garissa, Homa Bay, Isiolo, Kajiado, Kilifi Kitui, Kwale, Lamu, Madera, Marsabit, Narok, Samburu, Taita Taveta, Tana River, Turkana, Wajir, and West Pokot.

The Commission introduced the Career Progression Guidelines (CPG) in 2017, which outline the minimum requirements for teachers’ employment and promotion.

Applicants for vacancies in ASALs and hard-to-staff counties will be required to upload their letter of deployment to the current responsibility during the application.
