The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) plans to promote a total of 86,000 teachers who have been shortlisted within job group C1 to Senior Teacher II (T-Scale 7 Grade C2) positions.
The teachers will be seeking to fill 10,819 vacancies in regular primary schools and 700 positions in special schools allocated for Senior Teacher II roles.
TSC has scheduled promotion interviews for December 4th to 15th, 2023, at various Sub-county venues chosen by the Commission.
Applicants who have previously served as senior teachers and can provide supporting letters and those who have upgraded their qualifications from PTE certificates to Diplomas or Degrees stand a higher chance of qualifying for promotion.
The Commission’s score sheet will determine how interview marks are assigned, with TPAD and KCPE performance factoring into the assessment.
Shortlisted teachers have already received interview invitation letters indicating the date, venue, and the required documents to bring.
In August, the Commission advertised 36,275 promotion slots for teachers from job group C1 to D5.
The online application period lasted until September 15th, resulting in approximately 150,000 teachers being shortlisted for promotion interviews—the largest number in the Commission’s history.
In one interview invitation letter, a C1 teacher seeking promotion is instructed to bring seven documents;
- Original National ID Card
- Original Academic and Professional Certificates
- Letter of appointment to the current Grade
- Letter of appointment to the current post (if applicable)
- Analyzed individual subject results in KCPE/KCSE Examinations for the last three years, certified by TSC County Directors/Sub County Directors
- Performance Appraisal Reports for 2020, 2021, and 2022
- Any other relevant testimonials supporting performance
Successful candidates will need to produce five Chapter Six documents before confirmation, as stipulated by the Kenyan Constitution on ‘Leadership and Integrity’:
- Valid Certificate of Good Conduct from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI)
- Clearance Certificate from the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB)
- Tax Compliance Certificate from Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA)
- Clearance from Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC)
- A Clearance Certificate from an approved Credit Reference Bureau (CRB)
The Commission will promote successful candidates to Grade C2 and assign them to different schools within the same sub-county.
