A teacher in Kenya. TSC has rolled out the third phase of its delocalization exercise
A teacher in Kenya. 12,080 teachers want TSC promotions

The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has not promoted a total of 12,080 teachers after acquiring higher qualifications. According to a list prepared by the Kenya National Union of Teachers, KNUT, the employer has failed to promote the teachers; despite the latter sending their higher qualifications certificates to TSC. These teachers are Diploma, Degree, Masters and PhD holders but are yet to be promoted by TSC. KNUT has revealed that of the 12,080, 257 teachers have Masters’ degrees, 6,370 with bachelor’s degrees and 5,453 are diploma holders.

KNUT and TSC are engaged in a tussle over promotion of teachers who have attained higher qualifications and delocalization of teachers. The two sides have failed to reach an amicable agreement with the Conciliator expected to give an update of the talks tomorrow. The Conciliation Committee is chaired by Charles Maranga who is on Wednesday, tomorrow; 31st January 2019, expected to present a report to the Employment and Labour Relations Court.

Nakuru KNUT branch leads with the highest number of teachers who want promotions followed by Mumias, Bungoma North, Kitui and Butere. TSC freezed promotions of Teachers way back in 2014.

  1. […] The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has been given a go ahead to lay down strategies on how about 80,000 intern teachers will be hired to plug the teething shortages at public schools. While appearing before the National Assembly’s Education Committee yesterday, TSC Chief Executive Officer, Dr Nancy Njeri Macharia, told the legislators that about 80,000 intern teachers were required to ease the workload burden on the existing teaching staff. “We need these interns so that they can help us in addressing the shortage as we look for money to hire teachers on permanent terms,” Dr Macharia told the Committee. She requested the Committee to increase the Commission’s annual budget by Kshs. 27.6 billion this year; from the current Kshs 226 billion to 253.6 billion, so as to enable them recruit new teachers, promote those who are due for promotions and to implement the third phase phase of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, CBA. The TSC CEO told the Legislators that a total of 3,296 teachers who have recently attained higher qualifications are due for promotions. She said 1,650 teachers have graduated with Bachelors of Education Degrees, 11 have attained post graduate diplomas, 4 have doctorates and 1,635 more have attained Masters degrees. This number is, however, lower than that quoted by KNUT. The Union projects the number at over 12,000.
