The Teachers’ employer has started placement of Primary Teachers Education teachers to secondary schools. This came after the commission engaged the Kenya National Union of Teachers.
As per to Chief Executive Officer, Dr Nancy Macharia , with the CBC in place, more tutors will be deployed to Junior Secondary.
Mr Collins Oyuu, the Kenya National of Teachers Secretary General, noted the deployment process has been ongoing. The process of placement started long ago. It has been a continuing process in preparation for the next year’s Junior Secondary transition.
The commission had set goals for teachers in order to meet the requirements to be deployed to teach in Junior Secondary and it had further said it will offer exercise to the tutors who will be placed to Junior secondary.
The commission did not publicise for the placement posts this year, but they instead used a created merit list from earlier applications in past years to place the Primary Teachers Education teachers.
Teachers Service Commission uses placement as a form of preferment for primary school teachers, who have advanced their studies. Members of Parliament had pushed Teachers Service Commission to allow tutors with a KCSE mean grade of C plain or lesser to be promoted.
TSC has raised a verge for those teachers who wish to work in Junior Secondary
In addition by having a degree in secondary option, the placed teachers must also have no less than C+ in KCSE and also a C+ in the teaching subjects and serving under Teachers Service Commission.
