All teachers in job group C2 to C3 have a reason to smile following the new development by Teachers Service Commission.
TSC has announced the fresh promotion vacancies following the cancellation of the previous advertisement last week.
Among the newly advertised 13, 713 promotion vacancies, 10,507 were designated for primary school while 3, 216 for secondary school.
However, all teachers who have served in the capacity of Senior Teacher, Deputy Principal and Principals will be automatically promoted.
Akello Misori, the Secretary General of Kenya Union of Post-primary Education Teachers, KUPPET said that all teachers in job group C2 to C3 will receive an automatic promotion.
“We demand that all teachers in Job Groups C2 to C3 be promoted automatically after three years of service. We demand that no cadre be left in promotion advertisements for as long as it is currently the case,” Misori said.
The educators argued that some Principals in job group D3 serving under sub-county level have been stagnant without promotion.
Promotion will be based on career progression as stated by Teachers Service Commission Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia.
