After doing an interview successfully, newly employed teachers expect to receive posting letters from the teacher service commission. However, in some cases some fail to receive such letters. Instead of posting letters, some receive regret letters.
The deployment letters received by newly Employed teachers spell out terms of employement.
Regret letters on the other hand spell out why you did not succeed to be employed by the Commission despite having passed the interview and being pronounced the winner. Below are five reasons why you can receive a regret letter:
1. Your Documents
If your documents have issues upon scrutinizing them, the Commission will send you a regret letter instead of posting or appointment letter. TSC usually takes time to scrutinize the documents to ascertain authenticity.
2. Number of Units
If it is found by the Commission that the teacher took lesser Units in the Subjects at college, a regret letter will be written . The minimum number of units required in any teaching subject is eight.
3. Teaching Subjects
The two teaching subjects must appear in your KCSE certificate with a minimum score of C+. For Technical subjects, there is an exception.
4. KCSE Mean Grade
There is no exception in this case. Anyone training to be a teacher must have a mean grade of a C+ (plus) and above. Any grade below this will warrant a regret letter from the Commission.
Issues dealing with how the names are appearing in all your documents. Names should not conflict on your documents. Where there are disparities, it is necessary that you have a sworn affidavit.
6. Detected Fraud
If the Commission detects that the recruitment process was marred with irregularities right at the County level and the unqualified applicant filled the employment form, then the decision would be rescinded and the right candidate be employed.
