Quite a number of teachers will be promoted this July, according to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
It is however only teachers who scored a C+(plus) on the KCSE will benefit from the teachers’ employer’s new promotion scheme, which begins in July.
The automatic teacher promotion was ended because it was unsustainable, according to TSC Chief Executive Officer Dr Nancy Macharia.
“Due to the large number of instructors obtaining higher certifications, this program was monetarily unsustainable,” Macharia said in a statement.
As.per to the latest reports from the Teachers Service Commission, teachers in the six job groups would get wage increases with arrears after the July 2022 budget.
Teachers in grades C4, C5, D1, D2, D3, and D4 will see their pay increase because they have not yet hit the maximum compensation points allowed by the salary banding.
TSC has also confirmed that the wage points for these grades would be enhanced beginning July 1, 2020.
In addition,these teachers will get compensation increases in arrears from the time they hit the maximum wage point until January 2022.
