TSC Selection Criteria- Full List of Parameters used to Promote Teachers in 2021
Latest revelations from the Teachers Service Commission indicate that successful applicants were not just handpicked or appointed for the sake of it.
A number of factors played a key role in providing a level ground for determining and finally coming up with the final list of promoted teachers this year besides academic and Professional qualifications.
According to the guidelines released by TSC, the following factors were used to influence the entire process of Selecting and Promoting teachers seeking higher grades above the common cadre in 2021
1. Regional Balance
Since the Teachers Service Commission is expected to uphold integrity and ensure equity and fairness on matters pertaining to Teacher Recruitments and Promotions, the 2021 Selection exercise is no exception.
Regional balance is definitely one of the factors used by the TSC Promotions Interview panels to pick successful candidates.
2. Gender Balance
Besides regional balance, the Commission employed the gender rule to avoid a scenario where we have more male school administrators in primary and secondary schools as opposed to females and vice versa.
This is a clever move by the Commission to avoid gender I’m balance that may force it to reshuffle heads and other school administrators any time soon.
3. Affirmative Action for Teachers in Arid and Semi Arid Areas
Affirmative action for ASAL (Arid and Semi Arid Lands) counties was also considered in picking teachers seeking TSC Promotions in 2021.

“All vacant positions are advertised and filled competitively. All teachers are given equal opportunities through interviews sessions.” TSC says.
