BOM teachers who have been teaching are facing a dark future over state funded salaries. The ministry of education has already ordered both primary and secondary school heads to submit data for verification and subsequent payment. However among the requirement expected to be captured and submitted to the ministry for verification is a BOM teachers TSC numbers. Most BOM teachers do not have TSC numbers due to one reason or the other. Last year TSC issued a warning to school heads for both public and private schools against employing teachers who have not been registered by the commission and also those who have been dismissed due to misconducts.
One of the Boards of Management teacher spoke to Teachers Arena expressed concerns following the ministry move to capture only registred teachers.
Stanley Kithome who also teaches at Maweni secondary school in Mombasa said its not his fault cause he is still a university student who teaches to support himself in his school based learning programme.
“Am not sure if I will be paid because my headteacher refused to capture me in the list since I dont have a TSC number. But I don’t think I should be blamed he knows that due to financial constraints am teaching also to support myself persue my academic goals at the university. Once I graduate I’ll register and be like any other registered teacher but for now the government should not punish us for lacking regisrtation,” Said Stanley.
Among the data required to be submitted by the school heads include: the name of the school, the county it belongs, the name of the BOM teachers in the school and there TSC numbers.
Completed information for each county should be submitted through email email@example.com for secondary schools and email firstname.lastname@example.org for primary schools.

If the government released funds for bom to be paid , why are they not yet paid?
I don’t understand the reason behind all the delay for the payment of bom teachers. The issue is not tsc number but there are cartels out there popping eyes on the fund. They pay or not, we have been surviving!!
Kindly let me know if BOM teachers who have been suffering month will be payed or be played with tricks of which kenyans are known
Have the BOM teachers been paid
Confirm with your school head
When are we going to get that money because to date we are just in the dark, no communication from the school heads, surely what is their problem
