A good 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.
“This program was fiscally unsustainable due to the enormous number of instructors acquiring higher qualifications,” Macharia said in a statement.
The teachers in the six job groups would receive wage increases with arrears after the July 2022 budget, according to the latest reports from the Teachers Service Commission.
Since they have not yet reached the maximum compensation points allowed by the wage banding, teachers in grades C4, C5, D1, D2, D3, and D4 will see their pay increase.
The commission has also indicated that starting July 1, 2020, the wage points for these grades would be increased.
Furthermore, from the time they reach the maximum wage point until January 2022, these teachers will get compensation increases in arrears.
