TSC set To Promote 5000 Primary School teachers to Secondary Schools


From time to time, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) advertises promotion vacancies for teachers who meet the requirements to apply. This is mainly to motivate teachers to perform their duty with uttermost diligence.

The Commission has recently announced its intention to promote 5,000 primary school teachers to secondary schools.

TSC says that this move is to mainly address the huge gaps experienced in the rolling out of the new Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).

The commission has stated that that the new CBC has shifted most of its workload to secondary schools, therefore leaving primary schools with many teachers but less work. Following this, TSC therefore says that teachers who will be promoted will be deployed to work in the newly introduced secondary schools that includes grades 7, 8 and 9.

However, according to the commission, the promotion will be merit-based with the teachers holding a bachelor’s degree and had a mean grade of C+ (plus) and above are the ones to be considered.

Other qualifications include;

  1. Diploma and Degree in Special Needs Education
  2. Diploma and Degree in Early Childhood Development Education
  3. Diploma in Education (Primary Option)
  4. Diploma in Education, Secondary option
  5. Degree in Education (Secondary option) but lacking C+ at KCSE or C+ in teaching subjects

Before promoting teachers to teach in secondary schools, the following are the things taken in to consideration by the commission;

  1. Merit and ability as reflected in the teacher’s work, performance and results
  2. Seniority and experience as set out in the scheme of service
  3. Vacancy available
  4. Academic and professional qualification of the teacher

TSC announced that more teachers will be deployed to cater for the double intake expected in 2023, where, the grade six students under CBC will be advancing to Grade 7 while the class six students in 8-4-4 system will be joining junior secondary.
