Kuppet and KNUT have unanimously argued that even though continuous training sharpens skills, the cost should be carried by the employer and not the employees

“We are keen on ensuring that the employer foots the bills for trainings either fully or cost are shares with the teachers. This is because these skills are designed to benefit the employer as much as they will benefit the employee,” said Knut boss Collins Oyuu.

Kuppet chairman Omboko Milemba maintained that the training fees must be paid by the State through TSC.Milemba asked the Nancy Macharia led commission to include TPD in their budget.

“The main problem is that 6000. There’s no provision in that document indicating who should pay,” Milemba said.

“TSC should now go back to prepare a legal document that led to the TPD programme, explain how the training fees was arrived at and also make a requisition for that money,” said Milemba.

If TSC meets the new condition by the teachers unions, then teachers will get retrained at government’s cost.
