TSC Promotion Letters & List of Promoted Teachers in 2021: Commission releases promotion letters to teachers, check out the list of teachers promoted by TSC to higher grades/cadres in 2021
TSC promotion letters for teachers 2021: The Teachers service commision, TSC, has started issuing promotion letters to teachers who put their best foot forward during the February 2021 TSC teachers’ promotions interviews conducted at the county levels.
The Commission which is constitutionally Mandated to register, hire, transfer, promote and excercise disciplinary control over teachers in both primary and secondary schools has the final say over when it comes to either promoting or demoting teachers.
Categories of TSC Promotions
TSC promotions fall into two categories which include automatic TSC promotions for teachers in lower grades, bands and promotions on a competive basis.
Automatic promotions are issued to teachers who fall within the Common cadre grades such as C2 to C3 whereby after three years one gets automatically is moved to a new pay scale in secondary schools.
Competive TSC teachers’ Promotions on the other hand are subject to the availability of funds and vacancies. In this case, the Commission compiles a list of available vacancies and advertisements are disseminated via formal communication channels and interviews conducted.
TSC Teachers’ Promotions results 2021: After conducting interviews at County levels, the panelists send the results to the TSC headquarters in Nairobi so that candidates are notified by being issued with either promotion or regret letters.
Early this year the commision conducted Interviews for approximately 33, 000 teachers who had applied for the advertised TSC Promotional grades.
Latest updates on the 2021 TSC teachers’ promotions now indicate that some Principals who qualified have already been notified as shown by this post in one of the teachers whatsapp walls.
TSC list of promoted teachers in 2021
Attention now turns to teachers in job group L or C3 who are expecting their letters soon with fingers crossed.
Over 6000 vacancies were up for grabs as many tutors who had Stagnated in job group L battled it out in the interviews earlier in the year desiring to move to C4.
Job group L is the worst affected on matters Stagnation with some teachers staying up to 16 years without any annual salary increment to cushion them against inflation.
Due to limited vacancies and funds, it is possible for one to attend even more than two intervews without success. Not because of incompetence though but due to the aforementioned reasons.
There have been calls from unions to let job group C4 become a common cadre grade to allow teachers move undeterred.
If promoted to C4 one becomes an administrator in the name of a senior master who is the equivalent of a middle level manager, previously a head of department.
Do you think it is time C3 to C4 became a common cadre grade?
