TSC Clarifies On New Retirement Age For Teachers. TSC has now raised the retirement age for teachers who work in dry and semi-arid climates by three years.
The Teachers Service Commission has approved a later age for teachers to retire. Due to the increase in the retirement age, the commission has sent contract letters to instructors who have already retired.
One of the counties affected by these changes is Garissa County.
Region of Wajir
County Mandera is included.
The chief executive officer of the Teachers Service Commission, Dr. Nancy Macharia, has prioritized the teachers from the north-eastern area in the most recent events about retired teachers.
This problem has been brought up by the fact that many professors despise these places. This is particularly valid for teachers who visit these places.
According to Macharia, there will be a severe shortage of teachers in these subjects as a result of the ongoing wave of teacher retirements. She also noted that a teacher shortage already exists in the area as a result of the exodus of instructors from outside the area.
The teachers service commission will engage retired educators from these institutions on a three-year contract to serve for the commission in exchange for remuneration. After that, instructors will be granted an additional three years of retirement until they reach their formal retirement age.
Macharia said that the teachers service commission in the three counties (Garissa, Mandera, and Wajir) had been convinced to engage teachers on a new short-term contract in a news release dated May 18,2023.
To the county TSC offices, all instructors who have attained this retirement age must send their details. For teachers who want to get letters from the aforementioned counties, this is true.
Letters will be sent to intern teachers as soon as the entire budget has been approved. Over a long-term, pensionable period, these letters will direct people to these sites.
