According to a clarification issued by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) yesterday, acting teachers will be prioritized during promotions.
TSC board chairman Jamleck Muturi and legal services chairman Calvin Anyuor told the MPs that they had deliberately moved to ensure that deputy teachers in the post would be promoted first.
The pair explained why some MPs were not promoted when they came before MPs and claimed they did not meet the standards for promotion.
He added that the job evaluation report classified the evaluation of various teachers in national, district, non-district and district schools.
“We want to make sure that the teacher is the first. However, this cannot happen automatically because after the performance evaluation criteria have been fulfilled, the school has been divided nationally, regionally and regionally and given the same grade, so this grade must be followed,” he said.
However, KPU unfortunately did not receive additional budget funds for the promotion of teachers in the previous decade, in addition to the funds allocated for salary review based on the results of the performance evaluation report produced in July 2017. Wages and Remuneration Commission.
The board said around 15,000 teachers are now expected to leave the service on December 31 due to natural attrition. “Despite the vacancies in the authority, the establishment of new schools and the constant budget demands of the commission,” said Anyuor.
That was after Lugari MP Nabii Nawera raised concerns that some of the moving MPs would never be removed from their posts, according to the two people.
Meanwhile, a committee led by Tinderet MP Julius Melli has given a commission to ensure that all dismissed teachers are transferred to their respective regions on January 31.
Instead of focusing on the issue, the National Commission asked the National Assembly to prepare a report on how it plans to implement the movement when deciding on the policy.
The move comes after it was revealed that in November last year, about 14,733 teachers had requested redeployment from their current jobs following the termination of the layoff policy.
Melli said: “We don’t want a story, tell us when you’re going to do it, report it here to see. This policy has been revoked and we can’t go back because we know some of you are using it to punish teachers.”
TSC Executive Director Nancy Macharia told lawmakers last week that the mapping of the said teachers is still ongoing to ensure they are in the required areas.
Members of the National Assembly passed a motion in November seeking to cancel the 2018 primary policy.
The Legislature then ordered a thorough review of the teacher placement policy with input from teachers to bring policies in line with the International Labor Organization (ILO) and UNESCO management and teacher placement policies and procedures.
