Primary School Teachers Finally start Receiving their Deployment Letters

PTE teachers employed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) have finally started receiving their deployment letters.
1000 teachers will be deployed to teach in secondary schools by the commission. The deployed teachers will start at job grade C2 and will later graduate to C3 after completion of three years as specified in the Career Progression Guidelines.

“Successful candidates under this category shall be appointed at T-scale 7, Grade C2 under the career Progression Guidelines for Teachers and shall be deployed to secondary schools where vacancies exist,” TSC said in an advert in July 2021.

In the advert, TSC stressed the following requirements for one to qualify for promotion and deployment to secondary school;

  1. One must be a Kenyan citizen
  2. Be a holder of a Bachelor’s Degree in Education with 2 teaching subjects
  3. Must have attained at least C+ mean grade in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) or its equivalent and C+ in the two teaching subjects
  4. Must be serving under Teachers Service Commission

In July 2021, TSC improved teachers’ salaries as a result of a CBA signed between the commission and the teachers unions. For C2 teachers, their basic salary ranges in between Ksh.34,955- Ksh.43,694. In addition, the teachers enjoy allowances, from a commuter allowance of Ksh.5000, to a house allowance of Ksh.7500, and a leave allowance of Ksh.6000, which awarded once yearly. Those in hardship areas enjoy a hardship allowance of Ksh.10,900.

C2 teachers will automatically move to C3 where their prices will range from Ksh.43,154- Ksh.53,943.

TSC is currently facing teacher shortage. This calls for a higher number of teachers being trained, especially with the expected roll out of junior primary under the new CBC.

Primary school teachers used to get automatic promotion after graduation in institutions of higher learning. The teachers would receive acknowledgement letters which would be followed with changing of job group.

However, this changed in 2014 after TSC stopped schemes of service and adopted Career Progressions Guidelines (CPG) for teachers. Many primary teachers have been receiving acknowledgement but without any promotion.

TSC is currently implementing Teacher Professional Development (TPD) as a form of promoting teachers.
