Good news to over 30,000 teachers employed by the Teachers Service Commission, TSC, after being considered first in salary increment.

According to TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia, B5 which is mostly for primary school teachers has been disadvantaged for many years. The majority of teachers in this job group have been forgotten when it comes to salary increments.

This job group has six notches. Both commuters and house allowances are equal in all six notches. The basic salary varies from one notch to another.

The teacher in the first notch earns a basic salary of 21,756 shillings while the teachers in the sixth notch take home a basic salary of 21,197 shillings.

Similarly, a school that is located in areas mapped as hardship areas will get a hardship allowance. A teacher in Grade B5 will get a monthly allowance of 6,600 shillings notch.

There are six notches. Each notch has a different salary. The salary increases from the first notch to the highest notch. Physical disability is another factor that contributes to the amount a teacher takes home.
