 TSC Stops Automatic Promotion Of The Following Teachers

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC), insists that in its new plan to promote teachers from July, it will only consider teachers who scored a C+(plus) on the KCSE.

Considering the  present ongoing transfer exercise aimed at personnel balancing in schools across the country, TSC appears to have addressed some of the contentious issues surrounding teacher transfers

This arose after TSC stopped automatically elevating teachers with better academic credentials. Automatic teacher promotion was terminated because it was unsustainable, according to TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia.

“This program was fiscally unsustainable due to the enormous number of instructors acquiring higher qualifications,” Macharia said in a statement

In the latest update, teachers who have served in a station for a period of not less than three (3) years since their first appointment would be eligible for transfer under the current ongoing exercise, as detailed in a Circular dated April 4, 2022, obtained by Education News

The only exception, as per the letter delivered to the Commission’s field offices, will be teachers in the North-Eastern areas, who would be required to serve for five years after their initial appointment

This is a deviation from the prior standard, which required teachers to serve for at least five (5) years after their first appointment before becoming eligible for a transfer.

The commission implemented the transfer policy, also known as the delocalization policy, in January 2018 to force teachers to work outside of their home counties, with significant transfers occurring in April and August of that year

TSC now will evaluate family problems during the present transfer exercise and, if possible, move couples who have formally registered their marital status to the same area.

According to TSC, Teachers in the six job groups will get salary increases with arrears after the July 2022 budget, according to the latest report from the Teachers Service Commission

Teachers in grades C4, C5, D1, D2, D3, and D4 will have their earnings boosted, according to the study, because they have not yet reached the maximum compensation points allowed by the salary banding.

The commission has also confirmed that effective July 1, 2022, the salary points for these grades would be increased. Furthermore, from the time they reached the maximum salary point until January 2022, these teachers will get compensation increases in arrears.
