TSC Salary Increment 2022: Why Primary Teachers With Degrees Are Whetting Appetite for Higher Salaries, Promotions in 2022 as Ministry Clears The Air On Junior Secondary Schools

The competency based curriculum (CBC) whose pioneer class will be joining junior secondary school next year is here to stay.

The debate on who should host the school has been on for some time but now it’s official that it will be domiciled in secondary schools and not primary.

State department for implementation of CBC reforms PS Fatuma Chege sought to set the record straight yesterday.

She said in case some primary schools are allowed to host the junior secondary School section, the school will be independent from the primary section with own board of management.

The move is likely to put more strain on the already overworked human resource with TSC planning to hire more teachers.

The situation is complicated by the 100 percent transition started by the government a few years ago.

With the Commission only willing to hire 5000 Teachers this year, which is a drop in the ocean, the only other option Remaining is to promote Teachers with degrees in primary schools.

Bearing in mind that primary schools will be without class eight and seven hence less workload.

If TSC Moves to promote primary teachers to work in secondary schools so as to handle Junior students, then it will mean improved pay for these Teachers.

This therefore will be good news to these tutors who spent a lot of money to improve their studies.

Last week, nominated MP Wilson Sosion petitioned Parliament to compel TSC to recognize Teachers who have furthered their studies.

 

New TSC Basic Salary & Allowances For P1 Teachers In Grade B5

 

More than 30,000 teachers employed by the Teachers Service Commission have been considered first in salary increments.

 

According to TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia, B5 which is mostly for primary school teachers has been disadvantaged for many years. The majority of teachers in this job group have been forgotten when it comes to salary increments.

 

 

 

 

 

This job group has six notches. Both commuters and house allowances are equal in all six notches. The basic salary varies from one notch to another.

 

The teacher in the first notch earns a basic salary of 21,756 shillings while the teachers in the sixth notch take home a basic salary of 21,197 shillings.

 

 

 

The amount a teacher in Grade B5 depends on the physical location of the school, a school that is located in an area mapped as a municipal zone will get more commuter and house allowances.

 

 

 

Similarly, a school that is located in areas mapped as hardship areas will get a hardship allowance. A teacher in Grade B5 will get a monthly allowance of 6,600 shillings.

There are six notches. Each notch has a different salary. The salary increases from the first notch to the highest notch. Physical disability is another factor that contributes to the amount a teacher takes home.

 

In this job group, a teacher who is physically challenged is entitled to a disability guide allowance of 20,000 shillings per month.

 

TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia says that B5 which is mostly for primary school teachers has been disadvantaged for many years.

 

 

 

 

 

The majority of teachers in this job group have been forgotten when it comes to salary increments. Their time has come to be remembered and Macharia assures them that starting next year, their payslips will read differently.

 

Teachers in job group D3 have also been forgotten for a long in terms of salary increments. These are mainly the Director of Studies in schools who are supposed to be promoted.

 

 

 

For many years the Teachers Service Commission has promised them promotion and salary increment but nothing good has been done on their side. Macharia again has regretted this and says that TSC will consider them first in salary increment

 

Macharia further says that the commission will give all teachers salary increments but these are the two groups to be considered first. She insists that already the commission has received funds for teachers’ salary increment and that teachers should relax and wait for it to be affected.

 

 

 

The teacher in the first notch earns a basic salary of 21,756 shillings while the teachers in the sixth notch take home a basic salary of 21,197 shillings.
