10,000 teachers have been promoted following interviews conducted in the months of March and April.

The effective date for promotion is May 3, according to a statement issued by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).

Letters for the successful applicants will be released to the TSC county directors starting Monday for onward transmission to the teachers.

“It is anticipated that all letters will have been dispatched in two weeks’ time,” TSC’s head of communication Kihumba Kamotho said.

The teachers were among 27,000 short-listed for interviews conducted by the commission in February in various parts of the country.

They include 2,351 secondary school teachers who have been promoted from Job Group ‘L’ to ‘M’ and 1,800 secondary school teachers who have moved from Job Group ‘M’ to ‘N’.

Another 943 secondary school principals and deputies have been promoted to Job Group ‘N’ from ‘M’.

Mr Kamotho added that 1,500 headteachers and deputies in primary schools have been promoted from Job Group ‘L’ to ‘M’ while 1,011 and 469 classroom teachers in primary schools will move to Job Groups ‘M’ and ‘N’ respectively.

“Some 500 graduate headteachers and deputies in primary schools have been promoted from Job Group ‘G’ and ‘H’ to Job Group ‘K’,” he added.

However, Knut Secretary-General Wilson Sossion and Kuppet chairman Omboko Milemba, said more teachers should be promoted as a way of motivating them.
