1.0 BACKGROUND

The Teachers Service Commission Policy on Appointment and Deployment of Institutional Administrators was last reviewed in 2007. Since then, the teaching Service has undergone transformation necessitating the review of its legal and administrative framework. The promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya in 2010 and the repeal of the Teachers Service Commission Act in 2012 have significantly altered the legal framework under which the Commission operates.

Accordingly, it has become necessary to review the Policy of Appointment and Deployment of Institutional Administrators to accord with the Constitution which provides the broad principles that guide appointments to public office as well as the values expected of state and public officers. The Policy will also be in tandem with the Job Evaluation Report which has established the relative job worth of every grade in the teaching service.
