Over 3,800 diploma teachers in secondary schools will battle for 1,000 positions that were announced by the teachers service commission.
The teachers play a critical role in imparting knowledge to learners and shaping the society in the right way.
It will be a welcome relief for many teachers who have stagnated in their job groups for up to six years compared to their counterparts who hold university degrees.
"The interviews will be conducted from May 24 to May 28," she said.
The Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) Secretary-General Akelo Misori said unlike degree holders, diploma teachers enter the service under Job Group C1 (T-scale 6), previously referred to as Job Group J.
Degree holders enter the service under Job Group C2 (T-scale 7), previously referred to as Job Group K.
TSC began moving diploma teachers to Job Group C2 under the career progression guidelines as outlined in the 2017-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). "For them to be promoted to Job Group C3 (T-scale 8), they must go through an interview process," said Mr Misori.
The previous CBAS relied on Schemes of Service, which led to the stagnation of diploma teachers in one job group for three to six years.
