New TSC Salary Scale
New TSC Salary Scale. The new pay schedule for teachers who will be assigned to junior secondary schools has been made public by the employees’ employer, the Teachers Service Commission.
Once they are employed to instruct students in the recently introduced curriculum, the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), the pay structure will be effective.
The types of teachers who would be sent to junior secondary schools to work with students in grades 7, 8, and 9 has been a hot topic of contention.
Nonetheless, the teachers service commission has ultimately decided on the instructors as well as their new pay plan for the junior secondary.
According to information obtained by our media team from the Teachers Service Commission, junior secondary school promotions will be prioritized for primary school teachers with higher academic credentials.
The tsc’s career progression guidelines had barred these teachers from promotion. But, they may now breathe a sigh of relief because they will soon experience promotions with better compensation.
Moreover, P1 educators with a degree in education will be stationed at junior secondary schools. The above-mentioned teachers have obtained all necessary and required qualifications to teach in junior secondary, according to the status report on teacher preparedness for the CBC curriculum.
The only type of primary school teachers that TSC sends to secondary schools are primary school tutors with a bachelor’s degree in education.
One must have obtained a minimum grade of a C+ in KCSE along with the same minimum grade in the two teaching subjects to be eligible to be posted to junior secondary school.
