The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has announced the promotion results for about 16,000 teachers. TSC says it has promoted 16,152 teachers following successful interviews conducted in December 2020 and February 2021.

Teachers have been waiting patiently for the promotions which come with increased salaries. About promotion letters, the Commission says they will be dispatched to Counties where teachers will pick them as schools reopen for third term.

“Letters on the outcome of the interviews are in the process of being sent to all teachers who were interviewed.” Says Dr. Nancy Macharia (the TSC Chief Executive Officer).

Successful teachers will receive SMS notifications on when to collect their letters.

“The Commission will communicate to all teachers who were interviewed through the existing official communication channels.” Adds Dr. Macharia.

Similarly 6,680 teachers have been promoted from grade C3 (Formerly L) to grade C4 (Senior Master IV); which is the entry grade to the administrative positions in Post Primary Learning Institutions.
