What To Do When Your TPAD 2 Is Stuck at 98% Or 99 %

1025 Heads Whose Contracts Were Extended To Retire in July, 569 Others To Be Retained

A total of 1025 heads of primary and secondary schools will be sent packing by the teachers’ service commission, TSC since the two-year contract they were added is expected to end in July 2021.

The teachers’ employer had contracted a total of 1,594 institutional heads and extended their service in 2020, after their retirement age had been attained.

TSC CEO Nancy Macharia had confirmed plans to send the contracted heads home so as to enhance conduction of a fresh recruitment exercise by advertising new promotion interviews.

The big question however was the criteria that TSC used to retain 569 heads and extended their contract to December 2022, as others with the same case retire five months earlier.

When she appeared before the national assembly to defend the move to employ the administrators on contract, Macharia stated that it was impossible for TSC to conduct interviews and manage the transition of the heads of institutions in the middle of the pandemic, in consideration of the tight Covid-19 prevention protocols that had been put in place.

According to Macharia, TSC is not bound by the provisions of the Public Service Commission Act and since it is an independent Commission, the terms and conditions of service for TSC employees are under guidance of; the Constitution, the TSC Act, the Employment Act and the Code of Regulations for Teachers (CORT).

Further, Macharia argued that the commission will require no funding for the post retirement remuneration of the heads since they have not been replaced, implying that their pension will be paid up-to the date of compulsory retirement and they will also get service gratuity for the period they were contracted.

However, Macharia maintained that the commission will have to conduct a fresh recruitment to replace the school heads once their contract ends end in July.

TSC recruited primary school headteachers, secondary school principals and principals of teacher training colleges on contract after their retirement in the year 2020.

In September last year TSC advertised mass recruitment of school administrators for primary and secondary schools and teacher training colleges as well as field officers.
