The Teacher Service Commission is a constitutional commission established under Article 237 of the Constitution.
One of its powers is to appoint and deploy institutional managers.
In this mandate, the commission invites qualified candidates and teachers for the advertised positions.
The Teachers Service Council (TSC) has re-advertised 14,000 vacancies for primary and secondary teaching posts.
Interested candidates have until January 23, 2023 to apply online through the TSC website.
The call for applications comes a week after another ad was canceled at the end of December 2022.
The previous promotion was strongly opposed by teachers’ unions and other education stakeholders, who called it discriminatory and did not consider long-serving teachers in the same group.
Also, in the previous advertisement, there are many vacancies to enter primary school.
Of the 13,713 vacancies advertised, only 3,210 are reserved for secondary schools, while 10,507 vacancies are for primary school teachers.
Kenya Union of Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) Secretary General Akello Misori said senior teachers, vice principals and all teachers holding the position of principal will automatically be promoted.
“After three years of service, we require all teachers in job groups C2 to C3 to be automatically promoted.” As long as this continues to be the case, we require that no footage is mentioned in the advertisement. Missouri said.
Also, most principals serving in small district schools in D3 are not considered TSC for promotion.
TSC chairman Dr. Nancy Macharia said in a statement that promotional activities will be based on development guidelines.
According to Midori, high school seniors, on the other hand, have an important place in terms of professional development requirements.
Grand Masters IV is the entry point into the Grand Masters category; C3 teachers must rise to this level. “As a result, the high-ranking master has an old internal position, which, as we have noted, is contrary to labor regulations.
He said that 1,330 teachers are eligible for promotion, compared to the majority of teachers who continue to fall into this category.
Misori said he was not a new promotion as the commission said he was replacing his colleagues who had left the service.
Dr Macharia estimated that 1,021 teachers will be distributed to ASAL’s 18 districts, while 13,717 will be distributed to principals, vice-principals, head teachers and primary and secondary school teachers across the country.
Four teacher-training colleges will hire principals in the 5th job group.
In normal and SNE schools, 73 teachers should be appointed as principals and 603 as principals in normal schools.
The special needs school will have eight (8) teacher positions and 17 deputies across the board
725 vacancies are allocated to Vice Principals in Job Group D2, 224 vacancies are allocated to those working in Cluster III in regular schools.
In Group II, SNE will provide 15 points and 208 senior professors to be assigned to the same D1 group.
C3 has the highest number of senior teachers with 1,330 teachers promoted.
2,733 primary school principals will be transferred to regular schools and assigned to Working Group C5.
A total of 32 teachers will be appointed to SNE, and 7,720 MPs work in C4 and 22 from deputizing SNE.
Deputy Director I must have previous experience in T-Scale 12 or Deputy Director II Deputy Director or Senior Master II writing.
