TSC conducts promotion interviews for teachers on a competitive basis from time to time depending on the availability of funds and vacancies per grade/ cadre.

In 2022, there are approximately 1,500 TSC promotion vacancies for school administrators. The Commission will advertise these vacancies soon to allow qualified teachers to fill the slots competitively.

This year, TSC automatically promoted all teachers who had served for a minimum of three years in both Grades B5 and C2.

Thousands of primary school tutors with degree qualifications and a minimum of grade C+ in both KCSE Mean grade and subject combinations will also get promoted to serve in the newly established junior secondary schools.

In spite of promoting thousands of teachers in 2021, TSC Promotions are still shrouded with mystery with some teachers alleging corruption and interference emanating from county bosses during the promotion process especially now that the Commission decided to delocalize the process.


The latest TSC promotion guideline is the teachers’ length of service. Currently, all teachers who have served for at least 10 years stand a greater chance of being promoted than newly recruited teachers.

TSC Selection Criteria- Full List of Parameters used to Promote Teachers in 2021/2022

Latest revelations from the Teachers Service Commission indicate that successful applicants were not just handpicked or appointed for the sake of it.

A number of factors played a key role in providing a level ground for determining and finally coming up with the final list of promoted teachers this year besides academic and Professional qualifications.

According to the guidelines released by TSC, the following factors were used to influence the entire process of Selecting and Promoting teachers seeking higher grades above the common cadre in 2021/2022

1. Regional Balance

Since the Teachers Service Commission is expected to uphold integrity and ensure equity and fairness on matters pertaining to Teacher Recruitments and Promotions, the 2021 Selection exercise is no exception.

Regional balance is definitely one of the factors used by the TSC Promotions Interview panels to pick successful candidates.

2. Gender Balance

Besides regional balance, the Commission employed the gender rule to avoid a scenario where we have more male school administrators in primary and secondary schools as opposed to females and vice versa.

This is a clever move by the Commission to avoid gender imbalance that may force it to reshuffle heads and other school administrators any time soon.

3. Affirmative Action for Teachers in Arid and Semi-Arid Areas

Affirmative action for ASAL (Arid and Semi-Arid Lands) counties was also considered in picking teachers seeking TSC Promotions in 2021.
