The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has released new promotion interview dates. This follows an earlier cancellation of interviews that were slated for the 26th to the 30th of April, 2021.
The interviews could not take place on the earlier scheduled dates as most teachers were engaged in the marking of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations. It took the intervention of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) to have the TSC postpone the interviews.
“In the circumstances, we urge the Commission to immediately call off the interviews slated for this month and conduct the same in May or on any convenient dates after the marking of the KCSE exams.” Read a demand letter from Kuppet Secretary General Akello Misori to the Commission.
In July 2020, the Commission embarked on the final phase of promotion of teachers for the financial year 2020/2021. A calendar of activity for the interviews was prepared with the last set of interviews scheduled to take place from 26/4/2021 to 30/4/2021.
However as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic which disrupted the Education calendar in the country, the scheduled interviews conflicted with marking of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) national examination currently taking place.
TSC is seeking to promote all the diploma holders before the current Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) comes to an end in July this year.
New interview dates.
According to the latest Communique from TSC, the interviews have now been moved to the end of May, 2021.

Meanwhile, the Commission has dispatched letters to over 16,000 lucky teachers who were promoted recently. Get complete details below.
