TSC to Replace Acting Teachers With Promoted Ones

Spread the love

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is set to replace teachers who are currently serving in administrative roles on an acting basis but were unsuccessful in securing promotions.

This entails the removal of teachers holding positions such as senior teachers, senior masters, deputy headteachers, deputy principals, headteachers, and principals, who did not achieve promotion.

Last year, the Commission announced 36,505 promotion opportunities.

A comprehensive list of successful candidates spanning 724 pages was recently published by the teachers’ employer.

Promotion letters are now being issued to successful candidates through their respective county directors.

Between January and March of this year, the Commission promoted several deputy administrators to act as headteachers and principals across various primary and secondary schools. This initiative coincides with a notable surge in retirements among headteachers and principals.

To prevent any vacancies in schools, the TSC has directed county and sub-county directors to take appropriate measures.

Promotion interviews for teachers were conducted in December and January. Interviews for primary school teachers took place in December 2023, while those for post-primary teachers occurred in January 2024. Approximately 150,000 teachers were shortlisted for these interviews.

All 36,505 successful candidates will receive promotion letters from the TSC, and they are required to submit five Chapter Six documents, which are mandatory according to the Kenyan Constitution’s guidelines on ‘Leadership and Integrity’:

1. Valid Certificate of Good Conduct from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), costing 1,050/-
2. Clearance Certificate from the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB), free of charge
3. Tax Compliance Certificate from the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), free of charge
4. Clearance from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), free of charge
5. Clearance Certificate from an approved Credit Reference Bureau (CRB), costing 2,200/-

According to TSC , Individuals promoted to deputy and headteacher positions may be assigned to locations outside their current sub-counties.

Senior teachers who receive promotions are likely to be assigned to schools with vacancies within their current sub-counties. Meanwhile, those promoted through confirmation will remain in the schools where they have been acting for an extended period.

Unsuccessful candidates will be issued regret letters as evidence of their interview participation.
