TSC Teachers Upgrading News. Teachers now have a reason to smile as a result of the Teachers Service Commission TSC’s decision to deploy all P1 teachers with degrees and diplomas to junior secondary schools.
The commission asserts that these teachers will solve the teacher shortage in the various junior secondary schools in order to facilitate teaching and learning.
These promotions are open to all instructors with certifications or degrees in Special Needs Education (SNE) – major choice.
However, this exercise is not open to teachers who have earned early childhood development education (ECDE) certification.
Remember that applicants who received a C on their KCSEs but went on to get certifications and degrees will also be taken into account.We’ll think about their transfer to junior secondary schools.
A second chance will now be provided to some P1 teachers who were previously turned away at the Teachers Service Commission’s recently concluded deployment exercise.
P1 instructors with a C or higher and an advanced diploma or degree will soon have the opportunity to apply once TSC issues an application invitation.These educators will fill the junior secondary’s current deficiencies.
Before making a decision, TSC came under excessive pressure from the KNUT and DPTE teachers’ unions. These teachers felt overlooked throughout the deployment exercise to junior secondary schools.

However, it is currently eagerly anticipated to see if TSC would change its stance that C+ instructors are the only people qualified to teach in junior secondary schools.
Unions demand that TSC take teacher advancement into account.
Many P1 teachers have completed their study to get degrees and diplomas, according to Collins Oyuu, secretary general of the KNUT.
The teachers in the aforementioned category, according to Oyuu, are capable of working in junior high and high school settings.
The media in Kisumu was previously informed by Oyuu that “some of the teachers have degrees and diplomas and are highly qualified to teach in junior high school.”
The removal of the C+ standard was formally requested by the Secretary General. Oyuu claims that there are some instructors in grade C plain who have completed sufficient college coursework and are thus qualified to work with 7th graders.
