The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, CEO Nancy Macharia has said that promotion interviews for 36,505 teachers who have stagnated in one job group will start in December 2023.

Teachers have been urged to apply for the recently advertised vacancies for promotions, saying interviews will start on December 4. TSC CEO regretted that in the past the exercise attracted few applicants.

Dr. Macharia was speaking at the Kenya Primary School Head Teachers Association (Kepsha) annual conference in Mombasa on Thursday 9th, TSC CEO said 17,914 out of the 36,505 teachers to be promoted are those teaching in primary school.

Macharia said in the past TSC failed to attract enough applicants for promotional positions even after lowering the requirements.

“In the past, the Commission failed to attract enough applicants for promotions even after lowering the requirements. I urge you to apply because we have Sh1 billion for this exercise,” she said.

She asked the teachers not to shy away from being given more responsibility. The interviews will run from December 4 to 16. TSC boss said 1,123 vacancies for teachers advertised in Coast, Rift Valley, North Eastern, Eastern, and Central are yet to attract applicants despite staggering numbers of unemployed teachers.

“I wish to urge all unemployed teachers to always do their homework and apply for advertised jobs in any part of the country, and shun the practice of only seeking jobs advertised in their home counties,”  Macharia said.

In this financial year, TSC was allocated Sh1 billion for the promotion of teachers. “The commission last received funds for the promotion of teachers in 2011. We therefore wish to thank the government for providing Sh1 billion in the financial year 2023-24 for the promotion of teachers,” Macharia said.

Macharia said that the government also allocated funds to recruit 56,000 teachers in the past year, the majority of whom were posted to the Junior School.

In October, TSC completed the training of 56,928 teachers. They included 48,550 newly recruited Junior School teachers and 8,378 teachers who were deployed from primary to Junior School. TSC CEO said they have now automated the process to provide teachers with ease of applying for transfers.

“One can now track the processing of transfer requests. The module ensures that the transfer approval process is online where the heads of institutions, sub-county directors, county directors, regional directors, and the head office carry out their actions online,” she said.
