TSC Promotions for Senior Teachers Grade C2 (Primary) and Senior Masters Grade C4 (Secondary)
TSC Promotions; TSC has indeed proved beyond any reasonable doubt that it can stand the test of time when it comes to offering equal opportunity for growth and career progression to teachers who serve faithfully. Besides recently promoting long-serving teachers, the Commission has announced plans of expanding salary bands for senior teachers. The good news is that these senior teachers are likely to replace exiting school heads and principals who are set to exit service in July after their extended two-year term lapses. Over 1500 vacancies are therefore up for grabs since more than 1500 school Principals and heads who were contracted by the Commission owing to the then prevailing Covid-19 Pandemic will retire by July 1, 2022.
TSC Promotes Long Serving Teachers
TSC has shown that it pays to faithfully serve when called upon to execute your duties.
The above statement is founded on the recently released TSC Promotions Interview Results.
A quick analysis of the list of promoted teachers for the vast majority of counties where there were advertised TSC Promotions openings for both primary and secondary School teachers leaves one with one objective conclusion- fairness and equity.
The lists clearly show that the Commission in effecting Promotions for teachers this year took into account length of service that the particular teachers who were seeking the available Promotions vacancies had served in their current job groups/grades.
This is a revised version of what Kuppet has been routing for, automation of TSC Promotions for Grades C4 that is Senior Masters in Secondary Schools and Grade C2 Senior Teachers in Primary Schools where the vast majority of the teachers lie.
Stagnation of Teachers in Job Group L (Grade C3) and Grade C1
In the recently concluded TSC Promotions Interviews, the Commission seems to have addressed the problem of stagnation of classroom teachers without administrative Responsibilities in one job group for ages, a factor which hinders the teachers’ career progression.
This is a prudent way of ending stagnation of teachers in one grade which in turn demotivates and demoralizes teachers in the long run.
Besides this, the Commission seems to have taken note of the plight of classroom teachers who earn the lowest salaries now that the previous job evaluation exercise by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission, SRC in 2016 turned a blind eye to their true worth on matters school administration.
This follows TSC’s latest move- proposing a higher percentage for classroom teacher’s salary increment in the next Collective Bargaining Agreement, CBA expected to commence in July 2021.
TSC New Salaries for Teachers Starting July 2021
The Teachers Service Commission, TSC is proposing a salary rise ranging between 16 to 32 percent for the teachers with classroom teachers expected to reap big after TSC proposing the higher percentages for them.
If the proposed salary rise is effected in two cycles as proposed by COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli, then TSC will have succeeded in ending dissatisfaction among classroom teachers who feel used and damped by union leaders.
TSC Transfers 2021
The great news is that the Teachers Service Commission is not planning to transfer the teachers promoted in 2021.
According to the Promotions Letters received by successful teachers, the Commission directs them to continue serving in their current work station, schools until further notice.
The newly appointed senior tell and masters will therefore not be inconvenienced in whatever way following the acquisition of new Status.
New TSC Salaries for Promoted Teachers 2021
The newly appointed teachers are wetting their appetites for better salary perks now that the Commission will backdate them to the latest appointment date.
The Teachers’ effective Promotion date as indicated in the Promotion Letters is March 2, 2021.
Newly upgraded Senior Masters are looking forward to a basic salary of between Kshs 52,308 and Kshs 55, 506.
