TSC Receives Sh2.2 Billion For The Promotion Of 14,000 the Specific/ targeted Job Groups are discussed below.
The amount was suggested by the Budget and Appropriations Committee (BAC) in the Budget Policy Statement (BPS) report .
This will enable TSC to promote around 14,000 teachers who have been stalled in one job despite having higher degrees.
13.713 principals, deputy principals, senior masters, secondary teachers, head teachers,
and deputy head teachers at primary and secondary schools will be promoted, according to the commission.
There are 7,720 positions available for Deputy Head Teachers II in ordinary primary schools, which is the position with the most openings.
TSC will also promote 2,733 head teachers for traditional primary schools, 1,330 secondary teachers I, 725 deputy principal II,
602 principals for traditional schools, 224 deputy principal III for secondary schools, and roughly 208 Senior Masters II.
In addition, there were 73 openings for chief principals of conventional secondary schools,
32 for Special Needs Education (SNE) head teachers, 22 for SNE deputy head teachers,
17 for deputy principal I, 8 for SNE principals, and 4 for SNE chief principles.
TSC has posted 1,020 openings for teachers who would be assigned as principals, deputy principals, teachers, and deputy head teachers in counties.
In order to support the Competency-Based Curriculum and Junior Secondary School,
the BAC also boosted the budgets of the State Department for Basic Education to Sh134.92 billion and TSC to Sh322.64 billion, up from Sh298 billion in the current financial year.
Tutors who have been in one job group for a while will appreciate the additional funding.
Some teachers have sought promotions despite having higher qualifications but have been unsuccessful since there aren’t enough openings.
This funding will assist TSC in elevating these educators and filling open posts in primary and secondary schools.
The action will improve the country’s educational system and give deserving teachers better career opportunities.
