TSC Deployment to Junior Secondary Processing Status 2023/2024

Appearing before parliament, Mr. Anyuor on behalf of the TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia confirmed that the process of deploying P1 teachers with diploma and degree certificates to teach in grade 7 had already kicked off.

“We are currently mapping those teachers shortly and we will get the exact numbers,” said Mr. Anyuor.

Based on the TSC database, a minimum of 17, 000 primary school teachers qualify to teach in junior secondary schools having upgraded to DPTE and degree.

Currently, KNUT is putting pressure on the Commission to reconsider its C+ minimum qualification and deploy P1 teachers with degrees and diplomas irrespective of the grade attained at the form four level.

If TSC bows to pressure, all P1 teachers with C plain KCSE mean and/or DPTE or degree qualifications will automatically get promoted to junior secondary schools.

The Teachers Service Commission has already allocated 1 teacher to handle one grade 7 class in every county. If every county has got 1000 classes, for instance, TSC has assigned 1000 teachers to handle the classes.

These numbers are based on the 2022/2023 TSC budgetary allocation by the treasury.

TSC chair Mr. Jamleck Kamau also noted that the Commission will retrain teachers in primary schools and then redistribute them to junior secondary schools.

The Teachers Service Commission will consequently train primary school teachers in Languages, Pure Sciences, Applied Sciences, Mathematics, Humanities, and Technical subjects.
