The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) intends to send 6,000 P1 teachers to teach in junior secondary schools starting in January 2023, suggesting that the meeting between representatives of the Teachers Union and the TSC was productive.


The aforementioned statement follows a meeting of Teachers Union officials to discuss the situation.

The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), which is being represented by Colins Oyuu, the union’s secretary-general, is now in discussions with the commission.


According to TSC, the junior secondary school will soon be implemented, therefore primary school teachers will need to transfer to the junior secondary school.


In order to adopt a competency-based curriculum, primary school teachers will need to be placed in secondary schools, according to Dr. Nancy Macharia, CEO of the TSC.

In order to accomplish the whole shift of kids, Dr. Macharia also said that at least 6,000 primary school instructors will be dispatched in the first few months of 2019. Another group will be sent to primary schools after CBC is fully operating in June of the following year.


TSC-certified teachers are assumed to possess the credentials required for employment in secondary schools.


The Kenya Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has been urged by the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) to permit primary school teachers with a secondary option degree but a C plain on the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) to instruct in junior secondary.

As a result of the rising number of instructors holding doctoral degrees, the commission allegedly banned automatic promotions on January 9, 2014 due to their financial unviability.


The promotion and deployment of educators with diplomas, postgraduate degrees, and degrees from a variety of accredited educational institutions was sought by Members of Parliament (MPs), but not by students who received a mean KCSE grade of C (simple) or lower.


Following July, the commission’s revised promotion plan would only take PTE instructors who scored a C+(plus) on the KCSE into account. People who want to apply should go to the Teachers Service Commission’s website (TSC Online).
