TSC Promotions 2022-2023: Inside TSC Plan to Promote Over 7,000 teachers to Administrative Posts in 2022
Inside TSC Plan to Promote Over 7,000 teachers to Administrative Posts to usher in CBC Era in Junior Secondary
TSC Promotions are highly sought after following the monetary incentives that come with it.
During the latest TSC Promotions for the 2021/2022 cycle, a total of 16, 000 teachers were lucky to be promoted to higher job grades/groups.
The latest TSC Promotions News Today indicate that the ministry of education is working around the clock in preparation for the first intake when the pioneers of the Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) will be joining junior secondary schools in January 2023.
The government through the ministry of education has already initiated the construction of over 7000 new schools countrywide for junior secondary schools.
Once the 7, 000 new schools are completed, TSC will promote and deploy a total of 7, 000 qualified and experienced teachers to head these new institutions before January 2023.
This follows after the directive from President Uhuru Kenyatta during mashujaa day celebrations held in Kirinyaga County this year .
The ministry of education has already identified Counties that need extra schools and construction has started.
List of Counties that require extra Junior Secondary Schools 2022-2023
Kakamega county tops the list having been given a lion share of new schools. According to the statistics at our disposal, the county has been slotted for 353 new junior secondary schools ahead of admission of the first CBC cohort to secondary schools whereby a total of 597 Classrooms will be Constructed. Kakamega County is followed by Homa bay County which has been given 512 classrooms to be built in 293 new CBC junior secondary schools.
Clinching the list of counties that have prompted MoE to allocate them higher numbers of new CBC junior secondary schools is Bomet County (306 Classrooms) in 232 new Schools.
According the guidelines released by TSC, Factors like regional balance, gender equity and affirmative action for ASAL (Arid and Semi Arid Lands) counties among others were considered while effecting promotions for teachers in 2021. The Commission further adds that the promotions are usually equitably distributed across the 47 counties spread across the 8 regions.
TSC further specifies that all Promotions for teachers are pegged on the new career progression guidelines under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, CBA 2021-2025 as opposed to the outdated schemes of service propagated by KNUT during the Sossion era.
“All vacant positions are advertised and filled competitively. All teachers are given equal opportunities through interviews sessions.” TSC says.
The above considerations were applied in addition to the minimum qualifications for teachers to be promoted to the next grade.
A total of 16,152 teachers were promoted after the recent interviews.

Chances of being promoted
Even before you get your promotion results, you can speculate on whether you have been lucky or not. One way to do this is by reflecting on how you responded to questions that were asked during the interview.
Secondly, performance at the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations for the last three years played a key role in determining whether you would be promoted or not.
Numbers of promoted Teachers per County
As expected Kiambu County got the highest number of promoted teachers after recording the highest number of applicants at 1,717. Kisii came in second with 1,673 applicants while Kakamega had 1,488 applicants.
