KNUT Disappoints Some Teachers After Siding With TSC Against What Many Teachers Were Against

At a time when teachers in the country had been opposed to mandatory retraining by the Teachers Service Commission, the Kenya National Union of Teachers has sided with the employer.

KNUT through their Secretary General has reaffirmed to support the Teachers Service Commission noting that the mandatory retraining would be essential for quality service delivery.

“There’s a lot that is being said about the teacher professional development some say that the teachers will be required to travel for the training, this is not entirely true,” Oyuu said.

This is likely to spark controversy among the thousands of teachers who were opposed to the requirement by the TSC which will see teachers in the public schools renew their professional certification after every five years.

It is quite unfortunate that the teachers will be required to undergo all the six modules of training which means the retraining will take about 30 years to be completed fully by each individual teacher.

Sone teachers have however argued that it is too much burden on teachers since sone of them don't have 30 years long in the teaching profession with some noting that they will have retired by the tone the thirty years lapse.

On the other hand, sone of them have noted that teachers cannot be deducted professional training money from their salaries yet the same has not been communicated effectively to them.
