TSC mass transfer approvals start ahead of Dec. Jan. re-routing
TSC mass transfer approvals start ahead of Dec. Jan. re-routing. The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has started mass approval for teacher transfers as it plans to reorient unaffiliated teachers before the opening of the next semester.
Data from the Commission’s headquarters show that regional and interregional transfer requests were approved in December and early January.
At the regional level, teachers are transferred from one region to another. The TSC Regional Director is responsible for such transfers.
At the national level, the TSC transfer board is responsible for approving transfers for teachers who wish to be transferred to a district outside their home region.
About 26,871 teachers want to be transferred to their districts. Teachers were not successful in mass delivery earlier due to lack of suitable facilities.
As of June 30, 46,926 elementary and middle school teachers have requested to be transferred to their districts, but only 20,055 have been sent back.
The commission’s transfer policy ensures that an instructor’s departure station is properly replaced and that there is a vacancy at the preferred station before processing a transfer request.
Before a teacher is transferred, the TSC ensures that relevant vacancies, replacements and staff balances are approved before the transfer is approved.
Speaking in Parliament, Education CS Mr. Ezekiel Machgu said TSC, in fulfilling its mandate to transfer and deploy teachers, “must ensure fair distribution and optimal utilization of teachers in all primary education institutions”. As required by Article 43 of the Constitution, the state can provide quality education. ”
“Teachers who want to be considered for transfer from one institution to another must apply. “The transfer of teachers from one institution to another is determined by the need for equalization and the optimal utilization of teachers,” he said.
Other criteria for transfer include availability of vacancies at the proposed station, need for replacement, existing staff regulations, medical reasons or other reasons that TSC may consider.
Individual teachers can check the transfer status of their application online through the TSC transfer application portal.
Successful teachers must visit TSC district offices to collect pass cards and report to their new stations in January.
ONLINE TRANSFER REQUIREMENTS You must know
Pending: Teacher applications are displayed after successful submission awaiting comments from relevant supervisors.
Accreditation: Shown if the teacher has the right to transfer and there is a vacancy or the teacher can be replaced.
Disapproved: The teacher’s request seems regretful. This is used if the teacher does not meet the requirements in the transition policy, for example, not less than five years since he was appointed at the current station, there is no suitable replacement or there is no vacancy.
Approved: This is displayed after the transfer committee has approved the teacher’s transfer request. The letter of transfer of teachers is issued through the principal of the primary school and through the district director of the primary school.
Transfer PERIOD When a transfer request is withdrawn, it means it was not successful or failed and a new one can now be saved.
The TSC has suspended 129 non-indigenous teachers working in districts in the North Eastern region (Garissa, Mandera and Wajir) and other regions.
The teachers were issued suspension letters after they failed to report to their stations when asked by the TSC. The case will be heard in December.
The TSC introduced the delocalization of teachers to schools outside their place of origin to promote national cohesion and integration, avoid conflicts over school management, and address teacher shortages in various parts of the country.
