Hardship allowance is therefore paid in an effort to compensate for the cost of living for teachers working in areas designated as hardship.

The Teachers working in hardship areas face a serious variety of hard challenge eg. lack of water, flooding, hostile living conditions characterized by constant attacks from bandits.

 

TSC hardship allowance varies from one group or grade to another with newly recruited teachers receiving the lowest portion.

 

 

Recently, the Government revised the hardship areas, scrapping some on the ground that they will longer be considered to be hardship areas now that they have undergone major development in terms of availability of social amenities and well developed means of transport.

 

 

In December 2014, the Salaries and Remuneration Commission, SRC, reviewed hardship allowance to be paid at a flat rate for all equivalent grades/ job groups. The Commission effectively abolished the pegging of the hardship allowance as a percentage of basic pay

 

 

Administrators in Job grade D5 (Chief Principals) receive the highest house allowance of 38,100 shillings. Below is thw outline of the allowance per job group.

 

TSC designated various areas as hardship. The areas considered as a hardship include those that are prone to terrorism, famine, and aridity. As of 2012, TSC had about 38 areas approved as hardship.

Currently, teachers teaching in schools located in some parts of the counties receive monthly hardship allowances. The Salaries and Remuneration Commission is in the process of reviewing the allowances paid to teachers in those counties.
