Parliament Breaks Good News To Teachers Months After TSC Was Put To Task Over Promotion Policy

Few months ago, the parliamentary Education and Research committee resolved to invite the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to respond to a petition tabled in Parliament seeking to compel the employer to acknowledge degrees attained by in-service teachers from recognised universities.

All teachers with Primary Teacher Education qualifications are set for a big pay rise. The teachers who furthered their studies will smile to the bank after a petition proposed by Kenya National Teachers Pressure Group (KNTPG) was recommended by the National Assembly.

KNTPG spokesperson Martha Omollo petitioned Parliament to pressure TSC to promote teachers who have acquired diplomas, bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees while in service.

During the last Parliament session, MPs recommended that the TSC should continue recognising and acknowledging higher qualifications acquired by teachers while in service.

This comes TSC ruled out promotion of teachers based on higher qualifications attained while in service.

TSC said that promotion of teachers with masters and PhD degrees is a preserve of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission.
