TSC Boss Announces 15, 522 Promotion Slots for the Following Categories of Teachers

Appearing before the parliamentary education committee in December 2022, TSC Boss Dr. Nany Macharia was taken to task to explain the notorious stagnation of teachers in one grade or rather job group that has left many teachers disillusioned, hopeless about bagging any TSC promotion vacancies in 2023.

In response to this query, TSC CEO Dr. Macharia said that no teacher has stagnated in one job group for over 15 years since the Commission massively promoted teachers in the year 2021.

The latest TSC Promotion news 2023 reaching us at newspro.co.ke now indicate that over 15, 500 teachers who have effectively served on Permanent and Pensionable terms under the new career progression guidelines introduced in the year 2016 will get promoted to higher cadres in January 2023.

Speaking to Mps TSC Boss Nancy Macharia stated that the  Advert is ready and will be out once the national examinations are over.

“Immediately after exams come to an end, we shall advertise and start the process of promoting the teachers to different grades,” said Macharia.

According to TSC these promotions will cost the government Sh1.4 billion.

Macharia said this when she faced the Parliamentary Committee on Education.

The committee chair Julius Melly asked how much it would cost TSC to promote teachers. The members wondered why teachers were stagnating in the same job group for many years.

“There is an outcry that promotion is based on nepotism and other corruption matters. And this seems to be affecting most teachers who have been serving in the same position”* Hon Melly wondered .

The TSC Boss reported that the Commission had a strained budget that could not sustain the promotion.

Macharia urged the MPs to allocate more funds through the national budget, so that the Commission could hire more teachers and promote others.

The Commission is currently recruiting over 30,000 teachers to try and fill the teething staffing gaps.

2022/2023 TSC Promotion Guidelines

According to CPG, elevating teachers from B5 to C1 does not require any more schooling or interviews. To be automatically promoted to C1, one simply needs to have served in B5 for three years.

Promotion of teachers Grade C1 to C2

Grade C1 to C2 teacher promotions

For secondary school teachers with Diplomas in Education, grade C1 is the entry level. This group includes Primary Teacher I, Secondary Teacher III, and Lecturer I. Additionally, these tutors do not receive pay raises.

Teachers who have taught in Grade B5 for three years in primary school are automatically promoted to Grade C1. Grade C1 primary school teachers, sometimes referred to as Primary Teachers 1, are below T-Scale 6.



Primary school teachers are not automatically promoted from Grade C1 to Grade C2. A promotion for primary school teachers is grade C2. It serves as a starting point for the administrative cadre as well. Entry into this grade is competitive and contingent upon openings.

For one to be promoted for this Grade, he/she must apply online when TSC makes an advert. A teacher must have served for at least three years in Grade C1 in addition to having the required qualifications which is a minimum of a Diploma.

A secondary school teacher in Grade C1 is also known as Secondary Teachers II. Secondary school Diploma teachers in Grade C1 will then move to Grade C2 automatically after serving for three years.


Grade C2 is assigned to senior teachers in primary education. For primary school teachers, this grade signifies a promotion.

In the administrative cadre, it serves as a first grade. The availability of openings and the competition make admission to this grade not automatic.

For at least three years as a Primary Teacher I in T-Scale 6, an individual must have held that position before being promoted to this grade.

Additionally, TSC intends to encourage primary school teachers who are currently in the classroom to consider secondary school teaching after receiving their degrees.

Grade C2 is the starting point for primary school teachers who are transferred to secondary institutions.

A promotion for diploma teachers in secondary schools is Grade C2. After working for three years in Grade C1, diploma teachers are automatically promoted to Grade C2.

A promotion interview is required for a secondary school diploma teacher to advance from Grade C2 to Grade C3. Not automatically.

Graduating teachers in secondary education must enter Grade 2. When hired by TSC, every secondary school teacher with a degree begins in this grade.

After serving for three years, secondary school graduates immediately advance to Grade 3.

Below are different salaries and allowances paid to teachers in Grade B5, C1, C2 and C3

    A primary teacher with only PTE certificate will he/she get promoted to C2 orC3 after serving for 3 years in one job group or it will be a stagnation point for that group?

    1. News Pro Team says

      It is advisable to undertake DPTE for further career progression since it will give you an edge during competitive promotions.
