TSC letters for promoted teachers (2021) Dispatched
The Teachers Service Commission, TSC has finally honoured its pledge to fast track the 2021 TSC Promotions following the dispatchment of appointment letters for 16, 152 successful teachers this year.
The release of the TSC Promotions Interviews Results via an official TSC Circular has smitten the hearts of many teachers especially classroom teachers who had stagnated in Job Group L, C3 for over 10 years.
The 6,680 lucky teachers will henceforth be reporting back to school loaded with new responsibilities but packed with fatter payslips after they received their appointment letters approving their higher Cadres.
TSC Promotion Lists and Letters (2021)
You might be wondering why TSC Promotions Letters are the centre of attention this year.
Just to give you some background knowledge, it is important to note that the 2021 TSC Promotions are one of a kind.
Unlike previous Promotions for teachers, the Teachers Service Commission advertised the highest number of vacancies in 2021.
Teachers who came through during the interviews will be expected to bridge the administrative gap experienced in the vast majority of schools.
For the first time, the Commission advertised more vacancies for senior teachers and masters in Grade C4 which is an entry grade for school administrators.
A total of 6,680 teachers were lucky to enter this admistrative grade with a salary range of over 600,000 per annum.
TSC Promotions Criteria 2021
From the data at our disposal it seems that the Commission took into account length of stay besides other factors such as affirmative action and regional balance.
This is simply because the vast majority of teachers who got promoted to C4 had overstayed in Job Group L without any prospects of Promotions forthcoming.
Now that they have received their appointment letters, they are assured of a brighter future in as far as matters career progression is concerned.
