At least 8 units in each of the two teaching subjects.

Those with a minimum of C (plain) at KCSE (or its equivalent) and have undertaken a Diploma in Education together with a Bachelor Degree in Education qualify.

The first batches of P1 teachers have already been deployed. The teachers’ documents were validated, and they received deployment (posting) letters to junior secondary.

The P1 instructors were sent to begin teaching Grade 7 students from the junior secondary school area.

However, the majority of the deployed instructors waited longer before beginning to enjoy their improved pay.

In a circular dated February 17, 2023, TSC stated that it had received a total of 10,833 requests from qualified primary school teachers for deployment to junior secondary schools.

To expedite payment for deployed teachers, TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia issued explicit instructions to Sub County Directors and Primary Headteachers about releasing and receiving the teachers.

“As soon as the teachers are deployed to JSS, the County Directors will begin publishing on the publishing, Entry/Exit Reports Module to the Sub-County.

The Sub-County Director will assign the teachers to JSS,” Macharia stated in the circular.

She directed Heads of Institution (HOI) releasing instructors to quickly depart them by submitting depart Reports,

allowing the receiving Head of Institution to complete the Entry Report.

All of these processes, she stated, must be completed online via the Posting, Entry/Exit Reports Module, as the Commission no longer recognizes or processes hard copy casualties.

The Commission is under pressure to deploy additional instructors to junior secondary schools in order to alleviate the current severe teacher shortage.

The most deployed teachers are elementary school teachers in work category C1, followed by those in job group B5.

Salary for a deployed C2 teacher
Basic salary 34,955
House allowance (other areas) 7,500
Hardship 10,900
Commuter 5,000
Leave(paid only in January) 6,000

Those deployed (with degree certificates) will be assigned to job group C2, where they will serve for three years before being automatically transferred to work group C3.

Those B5 instructors with credentials will, however, begin at job group C1, where they will stay for three years before being automatically promoted to job group C2.

The Commission directed the Sub County Directors to guarantee that teachers are assigned to their present or nearby stations.

TSC stated that teachers having Special Needs Education (SNE) qualifications should be assigned to Special Junior Secondary Schools.
