Job Grade C2 Teachers Barred from Promotion to Deputy Headteachers
Job Grade C2 Teachers Barred from Promotion to Deputy Headteachers. Primary school teachers in job category C2 will no longer be promoted to deputy headteachers by the TSC.
Acting deputy headteachers at the C2 level will also be impacted, according to the Commission.
The Career Progression Guidelines (CPG) for teachers forbid instructors from moving up the career ladder by avoiding certain job groupings.
Before becoming a deputy headteacher in job group C4, a senior teacher in job group C2 must pass job group C3.
Before being confirmed in job group C4, deputy headteachers must work in C3 for at least three years.
Additional teachers who applied for school administration positions this week were notified by county directors.
Those acting administrators who didn’t meet the requirements weren’t hired.
Early this week, TSC Chief Executive Nancy Macharia reminded MPs that teachers had not submitted applications for numerous positions for advancement at various levels.
Macharia said that the commission’s requests for suitable teachers were unsuccessful.
We’ve advertised for teachers via social media and the general public, but not enough people are applying. Macharia, Dr.
On Tuesday, she spoke before the National Assembly’s Education Committee.
The TSC chief highlighted that 14,738 teacher advancement slots were published by the commission at the start of this year to fill openings caused by natural attrition.
Although 3,507 posts were open, 11,231 instructors were hired. 1,021 openings were for instructors who use affirmative action.
The commission posted 3,507 new job openings in June 2023. Macharia stated that the selecting process had begun.
Haro Abdul, a member of parliament for Mandera South, advised that TSC set high standards to deter teachers from applying.
“Does it mean no North Eastern teachers qualified to fill the positions advertised?” asked Abdul.
In accordance with common cadre promotions, 21,071 instructors were promoted last year, according to Dr. Macharia. She criticized teachers for not looking for opportunities in other countries.
Since teacher advancement is currently dependent on county vacancies, the panel had to deal with the challenge of “promotion based localization,” she noted.
She informed MPs that teachers could not be “transferred” to other counties.
Malulu Injendi, a Malava MP, attributed teachers’ prolonged employment in the same occupational category to TSC.
Teachers lack motivation. When do teachers for job group B5 act? Is there bias in teacher promotions? Said Injendi.
Promote more long-term positions with pensions to give teachers hope. Said Injendi.
Dr. Macharia cited numerous discussions about teacher promotions as evidence of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission’s (SRC) negligence.
Throughout the transition, 8,367 qualified primary school teachers were mapped out and placed in JSS classrooms by TSC.
“We have held a meeting with the SRC regarding the professors in an acting role and issued numerous reminders, but nothing has materialized. Teachers’ unions and MPs are pressuring me to increase teacher compensation, but I am unable to. Macharia, Dr.
However, because they already hold positions in higher job categories, many teachers above C2, particularly deputies and primary school heads, did not apply for deployment to JSS.
