TSC News on Promotion of Teachers 2019/2020, How to pass Promotion Interviews, New Guidelines for TSC promotions

If there is one thing that has greatly annoyed teachers in the teaching service is how their promotion is being handled. Most of them are extremely qualified for promotion but up-to-date there is no convincing reason as to why they have not been promoted. Higher grades in teaching force have the following advantages;

  • High basic salary and allowances.
  • Can be appointed in administrative positions.

Its important to note that a newly employed graduate teacher will automatically be in grade C2 which was initially known as job group K. After three years, the teacher will move to grade C3. Most teachers stagnate in grade C3 that used to be job group L despite having what it takes to be promoted. In fact most teachers retire while in grade C3. Majority of teachers are hopeful that one day the commission will be fairer and promote tutors who are merited.

A teacher in grade C3 andC2 cannot serve in administrative position and this therefore makes these grades limitive. For a teacher to move to grade C4 he or she must be interviewed. These interviews are usually advertised in print media and qualified teachers are invited.
