Teachers Service Commission has experienced low teacher registration for 30 yrs teacher professional development training.
According to TSC, only 20,000 teachers have registered for the program which started in December last year. This is very little in view of the fact that over 300,000 teachers are employed by the commission.
To change this trend the Teachers Service Commission has added the importance of teacher professional development training on pay increment.
TSC Boss Dr. Nancy Macharia says that only those teachers who have registered for TPD will be considered for increment in CBA 2021-2025.
When it comes to salary hikes, it should be noted that the 2021-2025 collective bargaining agreement is mainly in favor of classroom teachers who make up a large percentage of the teaching profession.
This information will motivate more teachers to participate and register in the program as they are longing for that salary increase.
