How does TSC promote teachers?
TSC promotes teachers based on existing service schemes, such as the TSC Career Progression Guidelines (CPG) and/or Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs).
The Commission shall evaluate the Appraisal Reports (Teachers Performance and Appraisal Development TPAD) presented on a termly basis when promoting a teacher.

Teachers are promoted in three different ways:

  1. Promotion on common cadre establishment
  2. Promotion through Teacher Proficiency Course (TPC)

Promotion through competitive selection                                                                    Promotion on common cadre establishment.                                              This applies to a category of teachers who may move from one job group to another without the need for a competitive selection process or availability of vacancies, provided they meet the minimum qualifications for the grade.                        This involves teachers in Job Group J (C1), K (C2) and L (C3). Promotion from Job Group J to K and K to L is done after three years satisfactory performance.                            TSC considers the following minimum conditions while considering a teacher’s promotion under the common cadre establishment:                                                1.The duration of the teacher’s service in a   certain grade (usually three years).            2.The validity of the teacher’s teaching         certificate.                                                        3.The teacher’s fulfillment of duty. Promotion via Teacher Proficiency Course (TPC).                                                       This form of TSC promotion applies to non-graduate teachers in Job Groups G (B5) and H (C1) who must complete a Teacher Proficiency Course. This has since been defunct.                                            Competitive selection for promotion.  Competitive selection is used to promote teachers to Job Groups M (C4), N (C5), P (D1), Q (D2), and R (D3). The Commission normally publishes these openings after some time (depending to funding being available). Interested and qualified applicants must then apply online through the TSC site.

The TSC headquarters is where applications are shortlisted. Shortlisted candidates’ names and guidelines for Job Groups M and N are subsequently given to County Directors and Regional Coordinators, who conduct interviews at the county and regional levels, respectively.

The Regional Coordinator will coordinate all institutional administrators for primary schools as well as those for county, subcounty, and day (secondary) schools.


The regional selection panel will consist of the regional director (chair), the host county director (secretary), the host county Human Resource Officer, and all county directors within the region.


Similarly, the county selection committee shall consist of the following members: the county director (chairperson), the host sub county director (secretary), the county Human Resource Officer, and the other county sub county directors.


If a teacher has not met the following requirements, the Commission may refuse to consider him or her for promotion.


  • Two (2) years from the date he was found guilty following disciplinary action.
  • One (1) year from the date he received an administrative warning.
