The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has released the list of teachers who have been promoted in 2021. The list has been broken down to counties and it contains the teacher’s basic details, current grade, grade promoted to, effective date of the new appointment and the new salary scale.

The TSC County Directors are currently writing the promotion letters for the teachers who shall then be notified via SMS to go and pick them. So, be on the look out for an SMS from the TSC County Director; with the good news.

After the promotions, lucky teachers will be appointed into the administrative positions and be deployed by the Commission. Currently, there are many vacancies in administrative positions at many schools. most schools are operating minus Deputy school heads, senior masters and teachers.

Criteria used for promoting teachers in 2021

According the guidelines released by TSC, Factors like regional balance, gender equity and affirmative action for ASAL (Arid and Semi Arid Lands) counties among others were considered. The Commission further adds that the promotions were equitably distributed across the regions

TSC says the Promotion is guided by career progression guidelines under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, CBA.

“All vacant positions are advertised and filled competitively. All teachers are given equal opportunities through interviews sessions.” TSC says.

The above considerations were applied in addition to the minimum qualifications for teachers to be promoted to the next grade.

A total of 16,152 teachers were promoted after the recent interviews.

Keep checking here for all the lists of promoted teachers per County; which will be uploaded very soon.

Chances of being promoted

Even before you get your promotion results, you can speculate on whether you have been lucky or not. One way to do this is by reflecting on how you responded to questions that were asked during the interview.

Secondly, performance at the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations for the last three years played a key role in determining whether you would be promoted or not.

Numbers of promoted Teachers per County

As expected Kiambu County got the highest number of promoted teachers after recording the highest number of applicants at 1,717. Kisii came in second with 1,673 applicants while Kakamega had 1,488 applicants.
