Big smile for teachers as TSC invites them for interviews

-More than 3800 Diploma teachers in Kenya have received  good news  today from  Teacher  Service commission- inviting them for interviews  in their respective counties scheduled to start on 24th, May 2021. Diploma teachers in Secondary schools  will be competing  for a chance  to get promotion in the 1000 advertised promotion posts  by Teacher  Service Commission (TSC).

-Most of the counties in the country  by today have invited  the Diploma teachers who had applied for the promotion which is to commence next week. The exercise was to be carried in march but was postponed because  Kenya National Examination council  invited them for marking of  examinations.

-Teachers who will be attending the interviews are required to collect their  invitation letters from the  County Directors of education TSC in their respective counties. Most the  Diploma teachers will be  happy  for this exercise. This is because  most of them have stagnated in the same  job groups for more than 7 years compared to their colleagues who have bachelors degrees.

-The Teacher Service Commission released circulars to the regional county directors TSC  trough the TSC  staffing director Madam Wahome Rita indicating the whole exercise will begin next week on 24th May  up to 28th May,2021.

-The Diploma teachers  employed by TSC  start  their   teaching career service  by entering into job group C1-T-scale 6 which was previously known as Job group J according to the information provided by the Kenya Union of Post Primary  Education Teachers secretary Akelo Misori. The degree holder teachers starts at job group C 2(T-scale 7)  previously known as job group K.

-The process of promoting  Diploma teachers to Job group C 2 started in 2017 under the career progression guidelines  as outlined in the collective bargaining  agreement (CBA)  2017-2021. To move from Job group C2 to C3 a teacher is allowed to  to undergo an interview process. The previous guidelines strictly required a teacher to stay in the same job group for 3  before being promoted unlike the current one which requires a teacher to undergo interview process. A total number of 16512 teacher were recently promoted from the interviews were done in February and December 2020.

A new implementation of  the new CBA is in its last stage which will be done by 30th June, 2021. During the interviews, teachers are supposed to carry the following,

  • must have a tax compliance certificate from KRA
  • clearance certificate from HELB,EACC and CRB
  • TSC registration certificate
  • certificate of good conduct
