TSC Extends Teachers Promotion Application Deadline. The Teachers service commission has announced extension of application deadline for promotions for a further one week. This is to give enough time for teachers who were locked out to apply for promotions from one job group to another in their careers.
As per the commission, the initial deadline for application was June 9th 2023. However, due to insufficient number of applicants witnessed, the commission has added 7 more days and now the deadline is set for June 15th 2023.
The Teachers service commission has clarified it intends to promote a total of 14000 teachers. However, several schools are running without heads or deputies. This is because teachers haven’t applied for these positions yet.
As a way of rewarding teachers for jobs well done and commitment for their work, TSC usually rewards teachers with promotions. It should be noted that promotions come with a number of benefits. Once a teacher is promoted from one job group to another, their salaries and allowances are also increased simultaneously.

Promotions are there to ensure teachers advance in their careers and encourage them to do a better job, as far as their duties and obligations are concerned. This makes teaching and learning processes better.
The commission urged teachers to apply for these jobs in large numbers. This is because they are the better managers who should handle these schools and run them smoothly.
NUMBER OF TEACHERS NEEDED FOR PROMOTIONS
In January this year, the commission advertised promotional slots targeting to be filled by 14,738 teachers. Among the positions to be filled include those of chief principals, principals, deputy principals, headteachers, deputy headteachers, senior masters, and senior teachers, as well as Special Needs Education (SNE) positions and institutional administrators.
However, even after the second advertisement, there is still 1001 jobs that are yet to be filled by teachers. For instance, out of 7720 regular primary school deputy headteacher jobs advertised, only 5152 qualified, meaning there is still need for 2568 more.
The commission has been forced to add a further seven days with hopes of finding teachers to fill these vacancies. The deadline day now stands to be on 15th June 2023.
