New Official TSC Grading System For All Teachers In Ruto’s Government
The current TSC upgrading of teachers contributed to the scrapping off of some job groups and merging of others.
With the new system of grading tutors, the grade that was previously known as P1, which was under Job Group G, was scrapped off and replaced with Grade B5.
The above grade was designated as the new entry grade for all tutors at the primary school level.
Other grades that followed were re-structured and re-named as follows:
J to C1
K to C2
L to C3
M to C4
N to C5
Another rank that belonged to the higher band which was designated as P, Q and R.
They include :
P to D1
Q to D2
R to D3
On the other hand, Kenyan National Union of Teachers requested for an additional job groups S and T, which the commission granted. Under the new grading, the two categories were named D4 and D5, respectively.
Under this new grading, the chief principals now fall under category D5 of the new grading system. Teachers Service Commission TSC New Grading Scale
