TSC promotion 2021 list for Head Teachers

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has released the list of promoted teachers. The good news is that a total of 2,111 teachers have been promoted to Head Teachers at T-Scale 10 (C5). These teachers have a reason smile as they will now earn an increased monthly salary with effect from March, 2021.

The Commission has also revealed the criteria used in promoting the over 16,000 teachers in 2021. According to the Commission’s revelation, a number of factors were considered in coming up with the final list of promoted teachers.

TSC says factors like regional balance, gender equity and affirmative action for ASAL (Arid and Semi Arid Lands) counties among others were considered. The Commission further adds that the promotions were equitably distributed across the regions

TSC reaffirms that the Promotion is guided by career progression guidelines under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, CBA.

“All vacant positions are advertised and filled competitively. All teachers are given equal opportunities through interviews sessions.” TSC says.

The above considerations were applied in addition to the minimum qualifications for teachers to be promoted to the next grade.

A total of 16,152 teachers were promoted after the recent interviews.
