Directors of Studies in schools commonly known as DOS have a reason to smile after TSC starts sending letters of promotion to them.
The Teachers Service Commission boss Dr. Nancy Macharia has confirmed this and says that all of them will be automatically promoted.
Macharia says that for a long time, this group of teachers have been forgotten but they play a very important role in schools.
The success of schools depends on how efficient Directors of Studies are. Macharia therefore says that the commission has started appreciating these teachers.
In most schools, Directors of Studies are appointed by the heads of institutions. This makes it hard for the Teachers Service Commission to recognize them.
Macharia says that this will be the solely role of TSC to choose Directors of Studies. As they receive automatic letters of promotion, Dr. Nancy Macharia assures them that their salaries will also be automatically increased. This is good news to this group of teachers
