Teachers’ employer, the Instructors Service Commission (TSC), insists that in its new plan to promote teachers from July, it will only consider teachers who received a C+(plus) on the KCSE.
This arose after the commission stopped automatically elevating instructors with better academic credentials.
Automatic teacher promotion was terminated because it was unsustainable, according to TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia, who stated earlier in parliament.
“This program was fiscally unsustainable due to the enormous number of instructors acquiring higher qualifications,” Macharia said in a statement.
Teachers in the six job groups will get wage increases with arrears after the July 2022 budget, according to the latest report from the Teachers Service Commission.
Teachers in grades C4, C5, D1, D2, D3, and D4 will have their earnings boosted, according to the study, because they have not yet reached the maximum compensation points allowed by the salary banding.
The commission has also confirmed that effective July 1, 2020, the salary points for these grades would be increased.
Furthermore, from the time they reached the maximum wage point until January 2022, these teachers will get compensation increases in arrears. This is wonderful news for instructors who fit within these categories.
