Promotion From Job group B5-C1 Finally Automatic- How To Get Your Arrears

Since the adoption of the 2017-2021 CBA and the subsequent formation of new job groups, teachers in job group B5 have been neglected in the common cardre teacher promotions. These teachers have persevered in the same job group for years till most of them gave up with issues to do with teacher promotions.

Members of job group B5 are designated as primary teacher II. Members are P1 teachers, who traditionally served under job group G, prior to its baptism to job group B5. It is the entry level of primary school teachers.This is what members of this job group earn.

One of the reasons why the teachers were neglected in promotions might have been due to the gruising battle that TSC has had with KNUT in the recent times and most members of job group G were members of KNUT.TSC was arguing that common cardre promotions are in line with career progression guidelines, which KNUT strongly opposed in favour of schemes of service.

The good news for members of job group B5 is that TSC has finally considered them for common cardre promotions. Members of job group B5 will now move automatically to job group C1 after serving for three years.Click here to see what they will earn after promotion.

The promotion will be automatic once a teacher has served for three years since employment, and the teacher is not required to fill any form. Once a teacher reaches the incremental year, S/he will get a salary increment. In case the increment comes some months after the incremental month, the teacher gets all the missed increments as arrears a month after the first increment.

Job group C1 is designated as Primary Teacher I.
