Teachers Service Commission, TSC, leadership is on the scope following the change of guard at the country’s most supreme office- the presidency.

Newly elected legislators who are serving their first term in the education committee have now shifted their wrath on two women leaders who in the past have been accused of humiliating teachers.

Senators on the underhand are after SRC Boss for mishandling matters if legislators’ salaries and allowances.

The latest TSC Promotions news reaching us now indicate that TSC Boss and other big wigs in the Commission will be obliged to explain why some of the promotions of teachers have not been dealt with once she heeds the summon.


The promotion of teachers by the TSC is based on existing schemes of Service i.e the TSC Career Progression Guidelines (CPG) and/ or the Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs).

The Commission shall in promoting a teacher, consider the Appraisal Reports (Teachers Performance and Appraisal Development TPAD) submitted on a termly basis.

Promotion of teachers is done in three different ways:

Promotion of common cadre establishment

Promotion through Teacher Proficiency Course (TPC)

Promotion through a competitive selection

Promotion of common cadre establishment

This applies to a category of teachers who may move from one job group to another without the need for a competitive selection process or availability of vacancies, provided they meet the minimum qualifications for the grade.

This involves teachers in Job Group J (C1), K (C2), and L (C3). Promotion from Job Group J to K and K to L is done after three years of satisfactory performance.

To get the common cadre promotion, all you need to do is to fill out the TSC promotion form.

In considering the promotion of a teacher under the common cadre establishment, TSC considers the following minimum conditions:

period of time served by the teacher in a given grade (Usually 3 years);

validity of the teachers’ teaching certificate; and

the teacher’s performance of duty.

Promotion through Teacher Proficiency Course (TPC)

This type of TSC promotion covers non-graduate teachers in Job Groups G (B5) and H (C1), who must undertake a Teacher Proficiency Course. This has since become defunct.

Promotion through a competitive selection

Promotion of teachers to Job Groups M (C4), N (C5), P (D1), Q (D2), and R (D3) is done through competitive selection. The Commission usually advertises for these vacancies after some time (subject to the availability of funds). Interested and qualified applicants are then supposed to apply through the TSC online portal.

Shortlisting of applicants is done at the TSC headquarters. Names of shortlisted candidates for Job Groups M and N and guidelines are then forwarded to County Directors and Regional Coordinators who conduct the interviews at the county and Regional Levels; respectively.

In the latest TSC guidelines, the appointment and deployment of all primary school institutional administrators and all institutional administrators for county, sub-county, and day (secondary) schools are to be coordinated by the Regional Coordinator.

The regional selection panel shall have the regional director (who shall be the chair), the host county director (secretary), the host county Human Resource Officer and all other county directors from the region.

Similarly, the county selection committee shall be composed of: the county director (chairperson), host sub-county director (secretary), the county Human Resource Officer and all other sub-county directors from the county.
