In January, 2021, the Teachers Service Commission announced promotions for 1,000 diploma teachers.
“Today we advertise for 1,000 promotion positions for diploma teachers. The online application portal will be available by end of the day,” the commission announced on Twitter.
This was barely two months after it had announced another string of promotions for primary and secondary school teachers in December last year.
Initially, teacher promotions were pegged on the schemes of service, which focused more on merit and ability as reflected in the teacher’s work, performance, and results; seniority and experience, the existence of a vacancy; academic and professional qualifications.
