TSC Amends Promotion Guidelines 2023-2024
TSC Amends Promotion Guidelines 2023-2024. The Teachers Service Commission‘s advancement guidelines have drawn harsh criticism from all quarters. Given that many instructors have remained in the same work group for an extended period of time, the promotion requirements don’t benefit teachers. In light of this, the Teachers have argued in favor of a thorough revision of the Career Progression Guidelines (CPG).
The Career Progression Guidelines need to be reviewed, according to Collins Oyuu, secretary general of the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT). He declared that the problem would be dealt with in the future talks to restructure the 2021–2025 non-monetary CBA. Teachers’ job groups have completely stagnated as a result of CPG, which has demoralized them.
Promotion for teachers was initially automatic. Yet, teacher stagnation began after the implementation of CPG, a development that has since alienated instructors. Oyuu spoke those things.
Hesborn Otieno, the deputy secretary general of KNUT, asserted that the present Career Progression Guidelines (CPG), which have numerous problems, were created as a result of the 2017–2021 CBA.
Otieno added that only a relatively small number of tutors are favored by the CPG Guidelines. The most favored individuals are those who occupy administrative positions, which excludes many professors.
Teachers have experienced a lot of stress and harm due of CPG. Teachers are now working without motivation as a result of it. It has caused stagnation among teachers. People who work in education do not perceive its advantages. The executive secretary of the Kenya Union Of Post Primary Education (KUPPET) spoke at Busia.
In order to establish a consolidated database of school administrators, ensure teachers’ advancement, and give more weight to stronger qualifications, Okisai also suggested that TSC conduct interviews quarterly.
The Career Progression Guidelines (CPG) for the teaching service were first introduced by the TSC in Circular Number 7/2018, dated May 2, 2018, and they went into effect on November 8, 2017.
For non-graduate and graduate teachers, graduate teachers, technical instructors, and lecturers, the rules replaced the Scheme of Service.
The availability of funded positions in the approved establishment, possession of the prerequisite credentials for each grade, completion of the necessary Teacher Professional Development (TPD) modules, acquisition of the necessary experience, and proof of satisfactory performance are also requirements for promotion.
