The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) changed the grading system for primary and secondary school teachers immediately after signing of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) 2017 to 2021 between it and the teachers unions.

TSC adopted the Career Progression Guidelines (CPG) as a way for grading and promoting teachers to various cadres.

The Commission also released new salaries and allowances for teachers after signing of CBA 2021 – 2025 with Knut, Kuppet and Kusnet.

As teachers we are very hopeful TSC and teachers unions will go back to the negotiating table to give us a payrise before general elections.

There are eight (8) grades that a primary school teacher can go through while in service. The job grades are scaled according to the relative worth of each job

Some of the grades are commonly established while the rest are competitive.
