FOREWARD
These Career Progression Guidelines have been developed to guide the career growth of
teachers in the employment of the Commission. They are to guide the recruitment,
retention, development, training and promotion of teachers to ensure they meet the set
standards.
Potential employees and teachers in service will know well in advance what they require to
join the service and progress in their careers. The guidelines further outline the skills and
competences necessary for advancement in the profession.
The Guidelines replace the Schemes of Service for the Teaching Service (2005). It was
necessary to review the provisions of the Schemes of Service to incorporate the results of
the Job Evaluation undertaken in 2016 and capture various changes brought by the policies
that the Commission has put in place.
Implementation of the Guidelines is expected to improve staff motivation and retention. It
will also enable the design of targeted training programmes that address competency gaps
identified from the performance of teachers.
It is my sincere hope and expectation that teachers will read the Guidelines to clearly
understand their career paths and take personal initiative to effectively manage them.

PREFACE
The Career Progression Guidelines provide for the policies and procedures that
standardize teachers’ professional development. For effective management of teachers’
professional growth and development, it was necessary for the Commission to develop
these Guidelines. In developing the Guidelines, the Commission has also been guided by the
provisions of the Code of Regulations for Teachers (2015) and the Kenya National
Qualifications Framework.
The Guidelines outline basic job descriptions, personal qualities and core competencies
required for each job and also set out the minimum entry requirements into the teaching
profession.
Under the Guidelines, the career path for school administrators has been clearly outlined.
This separates the career paths of school administrators and that of classroom teachers.
This is designed to provide clear reporting structures in institutions and eliminate overlap
in the grading structure.
The deliverables expected of each cadre of teachers has also been clearly set out. This is
expected to facilitate setting of performance targets and accurate measurement of
performance.
Ultimately, the implementation of the Career Progression Guidelines is expected to
improve the management of teachers in the employment of the Commission.

COMMISSION SECRETARY/CEO

CHAPTER ONE
1. INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND
These Career Progression Guidelines outline the academic and professional criteria for teacher
career advancement. The guidelines link a teacher’s career progression, to his/her performance
and professional conduct. To this end, they establish an important strategy which incorporates
best practices in teacher management.
Accordingly, the shift in policy from the “schemes of service” approach to a “career based
strategy” is aimed at embracing the principles of performance management that integrate
performance contracting and appraisal system with a teacher’s career path.
In a nutshell, the guidelines set out a teacher’s career progression from the point of entry, up to
exit from the teaching service. Henceforth, a teacher employed by the Teachers Service
Commission will take personal responsibility for his/her professional/career development.

1.1. RATIONALE FOR THE CAREER GUIDELINES
In 2016, the Teachers Service Commission together with the Salaries Remuneration Commission
(SRC) undertook a Job Evaluation (JE)in the public teaching sector.
The evaluation took cognizance of the following primary factors: job content, nature of duties
assigned to individual teachers, the academic and professional qualifications necessary and the
decision making level expected from each job/assignment.
Other factors considered relevant, from a distinct teacher perspective were: -level of
accountability, impact of the services rendered, problem solving ability, job knowledge/
expertise, managerial skills, inter-personal skills, working conditions, level of responsibility,
ability to give independent judgment and the prudent management of financial resources.
The recommendations of the Job Evaluation Report, led to an inevitable paradigm shift in career
progression of teachers. These include a new grading structure; substantive appointment of

institutional administrators and the introduction of Teacher Professional Development (TPD).
All these initiatives aim at fully professionalizing the teaching service.
In this regard therefore, the Career Guidelines seek to facilitate the implementation of the Job Evaluation recommendations. The guidelines outline the descriptions, specifications, and
competencies for each job in the sector. They also explain the professional requirements each employee is required to possess.
