Latest Update on Upgrading of TSC Teachers
Latest Update on Upgrading of TSC Teachers. Following the Teachers Service Commission TSC’s decision to place all P1 teachers with degrees and diplomas in junior secondary schools, teachers now have a reason to smile.
In order to facilitate teaching and learning, the commission claims that these teachers would address the teacher shortage in the various junior secondary schools.
All teachers with certifications or degrees in Special Needs Education (SNE) – major option are eligible for these promotions.
However, early childhood development education (ECDE) certified teachers are ineligible for this exercise.
It’s also important to keep in mind that candidates who scored a C in their KCSEs but went on to get certifications and degrees will also be taken into consideration.Their transfer to junior secondary schools will be taken into consideration.
Some P1 teachers who were recently shut out during the Teachers Service Commission’s just-completed deployment exercise will now be given another chance.
Once TSC issues an application invitation, P1 instructors with a C or higher and an advanced diploma or degree will shortly have the chance to apply.These educators will close the current gaps in the junior secondary.
The KNUT and DPTE teachers’ unions put undue pressure on TSC before they decided. Over the course of the deployment exercise to junior secondary schools, these teachers have felt ignored.
To see if TSC would reconsider its position that C+ instructors are the only ones qualified to teach in junior secondary schools, however, is now keenly awaited.
Unions demand that TSC consider upgrading teachers.
According to Collins Oyuu, secretary general of the KNUT, many P1 teachers have continued their education to get degrees and diplomas.
Oyuu stated that the teachers in the aforementioned group are qualified to work in both junior high and high school settings.
In the past, Oyuu told the media in Kisumu that “some of the teachers have degrees and diplomas and are highly qualified to teach in junior high school.”
The Secretary General made a comprehensive request to remove the C+ standard. According to Oyuu, there are some grade C plain tutors with enough college training, and as a result of their training, they are qualified to deal with 7th graders.
