TSC Confirms that July Slots Will be PNP, not Internship:Current Interns Likely to get confirmed

Primary School Heads Acting as JSS Heads to Be Moved a Job Group Ahead

Already the Commission issued the school heads with deployment letters allowing them to exercise their management skills in the schools.

However, the bone of contention has been whether the headteachers will benefit monetarily by managing the activities of the schools.

It’s now emerging that TSC will move the headteachers one job group up to entice them to their new mandate.

This is after details emerged that the headteachers could act as Principals for many years as the Commission struggles to establish junior secondary management.

Most primary school headteachers are in job group C4 (TSC scale 9) while others are in job group C5 (TSC scale 10). Those in C4 are earning a basic salary from sh.52,308 as minimum to a maximum of sh. 65,385.

In addition, TSC pays them a house allowance of sh. 13,000 (for those in other areas), commuter allowance of sh. 8,000, hardship allowance of sh.14,650 and a leave allowance (paid once per year) of sh.6,000.

Now C4 headteachers will be moved automatically to job group C5. Here they will earn a basic salary from sh.62,272 as minimum to a maximum of sh. 77,840.

There allowances will also be enhanced. They will get a house allowance of sh. 15,400(for those in other areas, commuter allowance of sh.8,000, hardship allowance of sh. 17,100 and a leave allowance (paid once per year) of sh. 6,000.
