Amount Teachers Will Earn Following Salary Increment
Amount Teachers Will Earn Following Salary Increment. The pay for different job classifications will be adjusted in light of the anticipated Government salary increase for teachers.
For instance, the lowest-paid teacher in the B5 category will see a salary raise from their current Sh21,756 to a minimum of Sh23,279 with a 7% increment and a maximum of Sh29,915 with a 10% increment.
On the other hand, a teacher may make at least Sh173,422 at the highest D5 grade. The basic pay for a teacher making Sh131,380 would grow by 7% in this grade, reaching at least Sh140,577. A teacher currently earning Sh157,657 would receive a maximum salary of Sh173,422 with a 10% raise.
Accordingly, the minimum basic pay would increase by approximately Sh9,197 and the highest basic pay will increase by up to Sh15,766.
The lowest paid instructors are those in the B5 category, who are primarily P1 educators. Most of the people in C1 are diploma teachers who advance to the following grade after three years. Similar to entry-level graduates, those with three years of experience move from C2 to C3.
Interviews are necessary for advancement beyond C3. Senior teachers and primary deputy head teachers are included in C4 whereas heads of departments are included in C5. D1 includes newly appointed principals and secondary deputy principals.
Principals and deputies are classified as teachers in categories D2 and D3, whereas principals and chief principals are classified as teachers in categories D4 and D5. Administrative positions are graded from D1 to D5. A D2 teacher can be the principal of a Sub County school; D3 and D4 teachers can be the principals of County and Extra County schools, respectively.
The study seeks to ensure equal and fair compensation while adhering to the concepts of budgetary sustainability and affordability.
For the fiscal year 2023–2024, the National Treasury set aside Sh27.7 billion, of which 44.2% (Sh9.5 billion) will go toward the educational service in accordance with the revised plan.
A reassessment of basic salary was guaranteed upon SRC approval, despite the non-monetary Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) negotiated between the teachers’ union and Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
Concerns over inflation led unions to push for wage evaluations.
For instance, the present Sh118,242 compensation of a D4 teacher might grow by a minimum of 7% to Sh126,519 and a maximum of 10% to Sh156,080.
Similar to this, a D3 teacher’s basic salary of Sh104,644 could rise by 7% to a minimum of Sh111,969 or 10% to a high of Sh138,130.
Teachers in D2, who presently get Sh91,041, might receive as little as Sh97,414 and as much as Sh120,174 with a 10% pay boost. Their current wage is Sh109,249.
According to projections, D1 teachers’ salaries will grow from Sh77,840 to Sh83,289, representing a 7% increase, and from Sh93,408 to Sh102,749, representing a 10% increase.
In a similar vein, should a 10% raise be implemented, C5’s compensation would increase from Sh62,272 to a minimum of Sh66,631 and from their present basic salary of Sh77,840 to a maximum of Sh86,625.
Similar to this, estimates showed that C4 instructors might increase their salaries from the current Sh52,308 to a maximum of Sh55,970 and from the present Sh65,385 to a maximum of Sh71,924 in the future.
With a 10% raise, salaries in C3 would rise from Sh43,154 to a minimum of Sh46,175 and from Sh53,943 to Sh59,337.
On the other hand, a teacher at the C2 level earning a base salary of Sh34,955 could anticipate earning a least of Sh37,402 and possibly as much as Sh48,064, going from Sh43,694 to Sh48,064.
C1 is expected to increase from Sh27,195 to a minimum of Sh29,099 with a 7% increase and from Sh33,994 to a maximum of Sh37,393 with a 10% increase.
In these difficult economic times, teachers’ unions prioritize taking worker issues into consideration.
