TSC Set to Introduction of Automatic Promotion of All Teachers
TSC Set to Introduction of Automatic Promotion of All Teachers. This problem has recently sparked a national outrage among teachers. The controversy is brought about by the fact that teachers have been locked in the same work grade for a number of years. The Teachers Service Commission wants to promote teachers automatically to the following job categories, with higher compensation commensurate with it.
This is anticipated to happen after a specific amount of time in various job groupings. The aforementioned activity is meant to motivate teachers to put in more effort and develop a stronger love for what they do.
Teachers are responsible for guiding pupils’ thinking. Furthermore, a nation’s youth hold the key to its destiny.

The evaluation procedure for teacher promotions has drawn criticism from the Kenya Women Teachers Association. The association has offered a solution to this issue. In accordance with the commission, “automatic promotion of teachers will act as a motivating factor for effective and excellent teaching.”
the commission declared. A method was established to rank tutors in accordance with their effectiveness, number of years spent instructing, and experience.
Because it won’t be as time-consuming, teachers will be delighted with this approach. Employee commitment and effort at work should be considered in the promotion process. Teachers who work hard will be rewarded with tangible incentives for their efforts.
The opposition to this shift will come from individuals who favor educational policies that restrict professional advancement. They may dismiss it as absurd because fewer instructors will put in the same amount of effort as they once did because so many focused so intently on TPADS and other curriculum evaluation items for promotions.
The proposed teacher advancement standards are still up for discussion as a result. The Teachers Service Commission has pledged to make every effort and ensure success in order to prevent teacher stagnation within the same work group.
