Muturi Confirms His Plans On CBA and Retraining For Teachers

All Teachers in Acting Positions to Be Given Priority During Promotion

Teachers Service Commission (TSC) yesterday clarified teachers who have been in acting positions will be given the first consideration during teachers’ promotions. TSC board chair Jamleck Muturi and head of legal Calvin Anyuor told lawmakers they had made deliberate efforts to ensure deputy headteachers who have been acting as headteachers will be the first to get promoted.

Speaking when they appeared before MPs, the duo said some deputies had not been promoted because they had not met the requirements of moving to the next positions. According to him, the job evaluation report categorised the grades of various teachers in national, county, extra-county and sub-county schools.

“We are going to ensure that the teachers get first priority. However, it cannot happen automatically because after the job evaluation criteria was done, schools were categorised from national, extra-county and sub-counties and the same were given grades and therefore, these grades must be met,” Anyuor said.

The commission, however, regretted they had for the past decade not been granted additional budgetary allocations for promotion of teachers except in July 2017 when money was allocated for salary review based on the job evaluation report conducted by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission. Natural attrition As at now, the commission said, about 15,000 teachers are projected to exit the service by December 31, due to natural attrition.

“This is despite the existence of vacancies in the authorised establishment, creation of new schools and persistent budgetary requests by the commission,” said Anyuor. The sentiments by the duo came after Lugari MP Nabii Nabwera raised concern that some of the deputies who have been in an acting capacity have never been promoted.

Meanwhile, the committee which is chaired by Tinderet MP Julius Melly gave the commission up to January 31 to ensure all teachers who had been delocalised have been transferred to their areas.
