TSC Senior Teachers Have New Requirements, Appointments, Duties, And Salary.
Under the Career Progression Guidelines, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) created new job grades for teachers (CPG).
Some job categories were eliminated, and others were merged, as a result of the current TSC teacher upgrade.
The grade previously known as P1, which was under Job Group G, was cancelled and replaced with Grade B5 under the new system of grading teachers. This grade was established as the official entry grade for all primary school tutors.
Secondary Teachers II work in secondary schools with a grade of C2 (previously K; Grade C2 is an entrance level grade for secondary school teachers with a bachelor’s degree in education).
It is also a promotion grade for Diploma in Education holders. These tutors are paid between 34,955 and 49,694 shillings per month as a basic salary.
In the planned salary hike, senior teachers in elementary schools in job category C5 will earn 64,631 shillings, an increase of 17,000 shillings. They are currently making 47, 896 shillings per month.
Secondary school senior teachers earn 157,656 shillings per year. A shilling increment of 40,000. They used to be paid 115, 163 shillings.
These instructors’ base salary are determined by the areas in which they work. Teachers working in Nairobi receive a significantly greater housing allowance than those working in rural institutions. However, all of these tutors are paid the same commuter allowance: Ksh.5,000.
