Deployment of P1 Teachers to JSS
Deployment of P1 Teachers to JSS. The fact that TSC is in the process of assigning all P1 teachers with degrees and diplomas to junior secondary schools has made them all very delighted. They are prepared to support the process of transformation. They will also aid in instructing the large number of junior secondary students who are underserved by tutors.
All teachers who hold certificates or degrees in Special Needs Education (SNE) – primary option fall under this category. All applicants who held early childhood development education (ECDE) credentials, however, were rejected by the commission.
Primary school teachers who obtained a C in their KCSE but went on to obtain certificates and degrees can likewise breathe a sigh of relief. According to information from close commission sources, they will now be taken into consideration for transfer to junior secondary school.
The majority of P1 teachers will be able to breathe a sigh of relief after hearing this. The Teachers Service Commission recently locked out these educators during the just-completed deployment exercise.
TSC will soon make a public call for applications for all P1 instructors with a C or better and an advanced diploma or degree. They will cover the enormous voids in the junior secondary.
The announcement follows TSC’s submission to undue pressure from the KNUT and DPTE teachers’ unions. They have been protesting about being ignored during the deployment exercise to junior secondary and prejudice from the commission.
WARNING FROM KNUT TO THE COMMISSION
KNUT has warned the commission strongly not to treat the aforementioned teachers unfairly in the future through its officers. The teachers mentioned above have made a significant contribution to this nation’s educational system. Only grade C+ teachers, according to TSC, are qualified to instruct in junior secondary schools.
Several P1 teachers, according to KNUT Secretary General Collins Oyuu, have advanced their education to earn degrees and diplomas. They are qualified to instruct in junior high and high school, on that note. Speaking to the media in Kisumu, Oyuu stated that “some of the teachers have degrees and diplomas and are well qualified to teach in junior high school.”
The Secretary General requested that the C+ requirement be fully removed. He also mentioned that the several grade C plain tutors had adequate college training. As a result, the training qualifies them to work with students in grade 7.
