TSC House Allowance For Grade C1 Teachers

Spread the love

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) pays monthly income and additional allowances, including house allowance, to teachers under various grades, including those in C1.

Understanding the house allowance amounts as part of the teacher compensation enables teachers to plan their finances better.

It’s important to note that teachers classified as C1 are diploma holders.

Some of the Grade C1 teachers under the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) scale include Secondary Teacher III, Lecturer III, Primary Teacher I, and Primary Teacher II.

The monthly House Allowance paid to various C1 teachers varies based on their location of work.

As a result, the Commission has categorized different working areas into clusters, which brings variation in the allowance paid under each cluster.
