TSC To Transfer Teachers To Regions Experiencing Acute Teacher Shortages
Looming Mass Transfer of Teachers as TSC Starts Registering Teachers Afresh
The Teachers Service Commission has revealed it’s plans to evenly distribute all TSC teachers once the biometric registration process is complete.
According to Ibrahim Mumin, Director-Administration, the biometric registration of all TSC employed teachers will give a clear picture of regions that are experiencing acute shortages of teachers and those with a surplus supply.
After the completion of the fresh registration of teachers, the Commission will be obliged to delocalize and transfer some teachers who are currently being underutilized to areas with very few teachers.
The new biometric registration of teachers will help the Commission curb chronic absenteeism among staff in Kenya since real time updates on clock in and out and lesson attendance will be sent to the Commission’s headquarters once a teacher arrives in school.
The fresh registration of teachers through the TSC biometric system exercise is currently on a pilot phase.
The Teachers Service Commission began registering teachers in Kenya afresh yesterday.
This exercise is meant to help the Teachers Service Commission TSC determine the shortage of teachers in Kenya public schools and colleges.
The fresh registration of TSC teachers will also help the Commission determine teacher utilization and distribution.
Of importance is that the Commission will be able to clean it’s payroll by getting rid of ghost teachers who have been drawing huge salaries from the TSC.
