TSC Releases 1000 Promotion Letters. To school administrators in various counties, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has sent out more than 1000 promotional letters.
Despite delays since the completion of the interviews, several counties are currently sending posting letters to the owners.
Early letters received by newly posted instructors allowed them to report to their new station and start working the following term.
In December 2022, TSC published an advertisement for 14,738 teaching posts before pulling it.
In order to fill the needed number of positions, the organization needed more applicants, therefore it did so in January, March, and May.
Instructors who sought for senior posts have not received letters from the Commission, and
While they wait for approval, some teachers are currently serving as senior teachers.
According to the TSC database, the majority of instructors who participated in promotion interviews in March and were chosen for the open positions have yet to be posted.
A senior TSC official attributed the delays to a lack of funding, which was provided by the Treasury in installments.
As long as it has funding, the Commission is expected to keep promoting and deploying teachers in tiny batches.
The stagnation of teachers has been blamed by TSC CEO Nancy Macharia to their lack of promotion.
She charged that teachers were reluctant to apply for jobs in neighboring counties.
Implementing “promotion based localisation,” where teacher advancement is now based on the number of opportunities in a particular county, presented difficulties for the commission.
The TSC director reported that the commission earlier this year issued 14,738 job vacancies for teacher promotions to fill openings caused by natural attrition.
Only 11,231 teachers were hired, with 3,507 unfilled due to insufficient applications, and 1,021 were designated for affirmative action teachers.
TSC has advertised for various positions in both regular and special schools, including
