Teachers across the country have a reason to smile as the Teachers Service Commission has vetted over 130000 of them for promotion.
The Teachers Service Commission boss Dr. Nancy Macharia says that this comes at a time when teachers have been complaining about promotion.
Most of them have faulted TSC for being unclear when it comes to promotion. They say that majority of them especially in job groups C3 have stayed in that job group for over ten years without promotion.
Macharia has assured teachers that come January 2022, complaints on promotion will be minimal. Macharia further says that the commission is about to come up with a system which will make promotion easy.
All the deserving teachers will be shortlisted for interviews and the same will be carried out one day. This is to avoid cases of corruption in promotion.
Over the years when promotion vacancies are announced, very few teachers turn up for the same.
Most of them say that they have no trust in TSC because cases of corruption have been reported but no action has been taken.
Macharia has apologized to the teachers saying that starting next year January, the process will be free and fair.
