38,000 secondary school teachers who are Diploma holders are set for new positions as the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education (Kuppet) announced to promote them.

KUPPET in conjunction with Teachers Service Commission (TSC), came to a consensus where vacant positions will be advertised and have those teachers who missed the previous promotion exercise considered.

TSC will use several criteria to conduct the promotion process where different job groups will be taken into account.

Those teachers who have been of service for a couple of years will be given some priority provide they meet other required standards.

TSC will also consider, the number of vacancies available and those teachers who mostly fall in Job Group K now (Grade C2) and Job Group J (Grade C1) in the promotion exercise.

On July 1, when the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) 2017-2021 took effect, a couple of teachers were promoted but others were left out on the basis of their qualification.

TSC expects to promote at least 29,782 teachers fall in C1 (Primary teacher I and secondary teachers II) while 19,439 falls in C2 (secondary teacher II and secondary teacher UT and Primary special need education teacher).

6,043 teachers who fall in Grade C5 and C4 to positions of the headteacher and deputy headteacher will also be promoted as TSC announced.

KUPPET secretary-general Akelo Misori commends that this would be a good gesture as it will work to motivate the teachers and make them have the urge to deliver quality services.

KUPPET not only wants to promote the teachers but the union announced that it will also increase the salary by 30 percent and 70 percent a move that will mostly benefit teachers who are not administrators.

“KUPPET proposes an increase in basic salary ranging between 30 percent and 70 percent from the current minimum salary of Sh21,756 to Sh36,985 in the lower cadre. This is informed by the cost of living which has increased since 2016,” read part of the proposal by KUPPET.

The advertisement for vacant positions is set to begin on Tuesday next week.
