TSC Allocated 2.2B for Teacher Promotions
TSC Allocated 2.2B for Teacher Promotions. The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has set up Sh2.2 billion for the national advancement of teachers.
According to TSC Chief Executive Secretary Nancy Macharia, promotions are meant to encourage career advancement, increase employee loyalty, raise morale and job satisfaction, and promote morale. She made this statement to the National Assembly Committee on Education.
In contrast, a number of teachers in the teaching industry have been in the same Job group for a long time, which has led to demotivation and low production. This set of conditions has an effect on the ability to provide pupils with a high-quality education, she continued.
According to Macharia, the current environment makes it difficult to give pupils a high-quality education.
The commission is trying to advance 13,713 principals, deputy principals, senior masters, secondary teachers, head teachers, and deputy head teachers in secondary and primary schools.
According to section 11(c) of the TSC Act 2012, the TSC county and sub-county offices are essential to the implementation of Teacher Performance Appraisal and Development (TPAD) and Performance Contracts. The Commission also requested Sh300 million to fund the programs and activities at those levels.
They significantly affect the fast resolution of outstanding disciplinary problems and the implementation of teaching standards, she continued.
The commission suggested spending an additional Sh 2.1 billion on the teachers’ professional development.
Macharia stated that professional development “involves career-long processes and related systems and policies” in order for educators (teachers, administrators, and supervisors) to properly carry out their work.
