ECDE Teachers Finally to be Employed in PnP Terms
ECDE Teachers Finally to be Employed in PnP Terms. At least 602 Early Childhood Education Centres (ECDE) teachers in Siaya are happy that the county decided to hire them permanently with pension benefits.
The teachers have put up with poor working conditions for a very long period despite fighting for better ones.
The local governor James Orengo’s office presented the new contracts to the instructors, who were chosen from all six sub-counties.
The appointment of ECDE tutors on long-term contracts with pension benefits was guaranteed by the governor.
“The new arrangement now offers the teachers better terms of service based on their qualifications,” Orengo claimed.
Every teacher in the prior engagement was entitled to a fixed wage of Sh22,626 regardless of their qualifications. All certificate holders will now receive a gross monthly salary of Sh23,853, while holders of a diploma will receive a salary of Sh33,906. A degree holder’s gross monthly salary would be Sh43,470.
The tutors had accomplished a great deal, according to Orengo, who spoke after presenting the teachers with their appointment letters. He said that this should motivate them to put out their best effort.
“My administration will also continue to improve their working environment,” he said, adding that by adding infrastructure to our educational institutions.
