Updated TSC Salaries and Allowances for Newly Hired Teachers
Updated TSC Salaries and Allowances for Newly Hired Teachers. Newly hired graduate teachers in Kenya receive a minimum of Sh34,955 in basic pay each month from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). Such a teacher belongs under grade C2 (formerly known as Job group K) and is categorized as a Secondary Teacher II.
You also get allowances on top of your base wage. You will receive a monthly commuter allowance of Sh5,000 as a C2 teacher. For leave benefits, a single payment of Sh6,000 per year is provided. The amount of the monthly dwelling allowance ranges from Sh16,500 to Sh7,000.
According to the TSC appointment letter, the new teacher must complete a probationary period of at least six (6) months. The probationary period could occasionally be extended if the teacher’s performance falls short of expectations.
After three years of service, you will automatically advance to job group L, or grade C3. Do this after finishing the TSC promotion form.
It’s critical to keep in mind that deductions will be taken from your paycheck before your net income shows up in your account. The deductions are either statutory (HELB, PAYE, NHIF) or third-party (loans, savings, and union dues).
