Teachers who were transferred to areas further from their families have been asked to apply for another transfer to an area of their choice.
Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) secretary general Akello Misori said teachers who are comfortable in their current stations are free to retain them.
This followed a series of engagements with the teachers’ employer which reached an understanding that delocalised teachers be re-routed to their preferred regions of service.
Further, Mr Misori pointed out that they agreed there will be no more delocalisation of teachers by the government.
Consequently, teachers can now start online application through the TSC website with the transfer process set to be acted upon starting January next year.
Members of the National Assembly Thursday unanimously approved the motion on the Review of Teacher Deployment Policy.
While passing the motion by Lurambi MP Titus Khamala, the legislators Thursday resolved that the Teachers Service Commission immediately reverses the ongoing delocalization of teachers.
Terming the policy as disruptive, the MPs want TSC to review it with a view to devolving it to the zonal level as the point of recruitment.
