The following teachers to smile after the government made this bold statement. Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is a free-standing organization, to appoint, pay, reprimand, transfer, and advance qualified teachers. The commission is led by the current CEO, Dr. Nancy Macharia.
There are numerous educational institutions in Kenya. While a small number of these institutions are operated by the private sector, the majority are managed by the government. In these educational institutions, students are often taught by qualified teachers.
Statistics show that there are over 300,000 teachers working in both elementary and secondary schools in Kenya.
In private schools, some of these professionals are engaged by either people or organizations, while others are employed by the government through the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
A few years ago, the majority of teachers could be observed returning to school to further their education. This allowed them to receive a competitive salary from their workplace, TSC.
Only a small percentage of students who received academic certificates were promoted. The government, through the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), stopped promoting teachers based on their academic credentials, which was unfortunate for some.
Primary school teachers who had previously progressed their studies and obtained diploma and degree credentials may now smile as the government makes these bold announcements following the implementation of the Junior Secondary Schools under the new curriculum CBC.
The government has stated that they are now mapping those qualified teachers who are currently assigned to primary schools in order to promote them to teach in junior secondary schools, according to the source.
