TSC Intercounty Transfer Factors Considered
TSC Intercounty Transfer Factors Considered. When considering inter-county transfers for teachers, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) considers a number of variables.
The Commission will utilize the information below to evaluate intercounty transfer petitions, particularly for delocalized instructors.
Please take note that in order to satisfy delocalized teachers, TSC will also need to balance its workforce in each Sub County to prevent a serious shortage.
1. Health status:
Previously, teachers with documented terminal illnesses were excused from being transferred out of the sub county where they worked.
The primary focus will be teachers who are ill. Early transfers will be made for teachers who have chronic illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.
TSC will, however, assess each case on its own merit, taking into account, among other things, the proposed station’s availability and accessibility of the necessary medical facilities as well as the accompanying medical documentation.
2. Family considerations:
Families with teachers are taken into consideration. When rerouting delocalized teachers home, this will be a crucial consideration. An affidavit or a marriage certificate will serve as proof of the union.
Couples who work for the Commission and have formally declared their marriage in the same area have previously been relocated by TSC.
3. The teacher’s age:
One of the things TSC takes into account when evaluating a transfer request is the teacher’s age.
In the past, instructors who were 56 years of age or older were excluded from being transferred away from where they were currently working.
Teachers over the age of 50 will be given top priority when transfer requests are taken into account as a result of the TSC’s delocalization policy’s end.
Delocalized teachers in this age group are school administrators who were relocated outside of their county in 2018.
There are over 6,078 principals of secondary and primary schools who have relocated.
4. Teachers with Disabilities;
Before, transfers outside of their present station or sub County were not permitted for teachers with disabilities who held the required certification.
When the rerouting process begins, delocalized teachers who have a documented disability will be given priority.
6. Length of stay since first appointment:
Until the Commission Secretary grants an exception, a teacher must have worked at a station for at least three (3) years and five (5) years, respectively, in the North Eastern and other areas, from their initial appointment.
Although this will alter, priority will be determined by the amount of time since the initial appointment.
2016 saw the delocalization of several professors, while 2017 saw others relocate in 2020, 2021, and 2022. TSC will take into account when the teacher was initially posted.
A Few Online Transfer Terms You Should Be Aware Of
Pending: This is shown when the teacher’s application has been submitted successfully and is awaiting feedback from the appropriate supervisors.
Acknowledged: This is shown if the instructor is transferable and is awaiting the opening of a position or the appointment of a suitable successor.
Not Approved: This is the same as when a request from a teacher is regrettable. This is applicable if the teacher has not complied with the transfer policy’s requirements, such as not having worked at the current station for at least five years following first appointment, not having a suitable successor, or a vacancy.
Approved: Upon the transfer committee’s approval of the teachers’ transfer request, this is shown as approved. The Principal, in the case of post-primary institutions, and the County Director, in the case of primary schools, are then in charge of issuing the teachers’ transfer letter.
NOTE: A transfer request that is withdrawn merely indicates that it was unsuccessful or that it was successful and that a fresh request may now be made.
