Directors/Regional Director, Nairobi. Consideration should be given to the following: –
i) Proximity to the current station. As much as possible, the teachers should be deployed to their current stations or those that are close to their current stations.
ii) Subject Combination of the teacher. Unless a station requires more than one teacher of the same subject combination, Sub-County Directors should not deploy teachers of similar subject combinations with those already posted to JSS.
iii) Gender of the teacher. Endeavor to balance the gender of teachers posted to the same station.
iv) Teachers with SNE qualification should be posted to Special JSS.
v) Deployment will be done using the templates shared. It is important to study the templates and where necessary seek clarification. The Sub-County Director shall sign two deployment letters for each teacher. One letter shall be issued to the teacher while the second original letter shall be submitted together with other deployment documents for filing at the headquarters.
As you conduct the deployment exercise, note the following:
a) Teachers at Grade B5 and C1 with a Bachelor’s degree will be issued with appointment letters to Grade C2 (Appendix I);

Grade C1 (Appendix II);

The Heads of Institution releasing the teachers must immediately exit them through the submission of Exit Reports to enable the receiving Head of Institution to submit the Entry Report.
All these processes must be conducted online through the Posting, Entry/Exit Reports Module as the Commission no longer recognizes nor process hard copy casualties.

DR. NANCY NJERI MACHARIA, CBS
This is a good move. Kindly requesting that those of us with C plain and a bachelor degree be allowed to teach JSS classes. We have been doing it and are equal to the task.
Let me sincerely hope that they have taken us to the counties of our choice just like those recruited recently.
Even if they will use my ID.
How do I check if I am among those deployed?
Please Tsc make it possible for teachers who did not secure transfers to be deployed in counties they applied. Have mercy on us
May God Almighty guide those qualified to go on without obstacles🙏.
May God remember those whose hearts are bleeding because of one reason or another.
May the desires of our hearts that are in accordance with God’s will be fulfilled🙏
Let TSC stop discrimination.
ATI primary option. Niaje
C playon and degree?
congratulations on tsc for this move will cater for the shortage in jss
Kindly my prayer those who were delocalized and are willing to go back to home counties consider us kindly deploy us counties of our choice.
Am really waiting for the message. May God see us through.
Eagerly waiting for an sms or email for veting…..may God continue to take us through🙏
i scored D+/did p1 /diploma in ecde/bachelor in education earlychildhood education and primary option.did these among others;
-pysical education and sports
Eargerly waiting,,sijui itakuwa lini na tutajuaje????
AS promised earlier consider those with primary option degrees with c plain,they are conversant with subjects in JSS
I have always doubted the authenticity of some information on this platform,most information you post here does not happen on the ground, could it be a way of just pleasing teachers
How did they got the qualified teachers and yet we didn’t apply to join JSS?
That is a good move. Congratulations TSC.
That is a good move. Congratulations TSC. Kindly move with speed to finalize that exercise.
Consider c+kcse and ecde degrees
It’s my prayer that those who will qualify be posted to counties of their choice.have mercy on ladies.

TSC is a joker .Lecturers,who progressed as primary tutors are the most successful in the university discipline,are 75 percent on board: pro. Kinyanjui: Kenyatta university,prof. Ondigi: kisii university,The late professor Mazrui.There are several drawing boards for kids to sail through!Buildings in secondary are deserted option, domiciled there is reversed, mandatory qualification is lessened to willing, Simply, look for experts than changing goalposts. The pupils have to complete the syllabus and join grade right.The paradoxical irony quagmire is taking Kenya back to square 1till dawn Visit schools assess to access a qualified deployed, to manage and succumb the mayhem for Kenyan child.Otherwise it is a trickster episode.Go to the database bank and get the qualified. Do not judge a book by the cover, go through, peruse and skim. The olili,a man of the people setbook.
Kindly consider those with diploma and degrees in primary option,they are equal to the task
What is the tsc take of the ECDE diploma on deployment to jss
Consider all those did degree with p1 qualifications…
P1 with Diplomas and Degrees, Primary option are much conversant to JSS content . Why discrimination !!!!!!
What does appendix 3 for deployment of c2 teachers to JSS say?
Are there a y financial implications on payslips for c2 teachers deployed?
Messages from subcounties for verification have started streaming in……. kudos TSC.
Kindly post us in our home counties to join our families especially those who were delocalised.
I met all the requirements…I had applied but wasn’t shortlisted..Am so much demotivated by this..What creteria did you use to shortlist?. Am yet to come into terms with the disappointment.
Where’s appendix III?
What about those whose application did not go through because they did bachelor’s with mean grade c .what is their fate????
Iam disappointed,did bachelor’s pri.option,CPlus kcse,my grade those days was strong lakini dad’s inakuwa waste
Tsc should consider all p1 teachers who scored a c+ and have upgraded their pte certifice to any diploma or degree and ajso those who scored c(plain)
Kindly consider those teachers who scored D+ in 1996-1990.They are P1s and did diploma in ECDE, they are familiar with CBC and went for CBA workshop for one week
Kindly consider P1 teachers who wasted there two years taking a course in ECDE hopping that one day they will be promoted.
I am also very much disappointed. The c2 who are being deployed to jss will receive a deployment letter only and nothing more! It’s actually demotivating! I am confused.
C2 with bachelor degree will be promoted to C3 but for diploma,only deployment letters🤔🤔
Believe me or not most diploma holders didn’t achieve a c+ .u have a challenge.continue panicking.
What are the fate of p1 teachers who lack mean grade of c+ & two teaching
subjects but did pup certificate before joining bachelor’s of education arts with two teaching subjects. Please rethink about the team they are equal to the tasks .
One thing have learnt even the tsc don’t know what is happening in jss.
We have subject like , health education,creative arts, music,physics education,.one thing any P1 teacher is all conversant with all that stuff, when it comes to maths, English, integrated science anyone with Cplus in kcse n any of the preferred subject is equal to the task,any diploma or degree in field of education may it be ecd,sne, primary option etc is an added advantage.the headteachers in primary also would be better placed to select competent teachers, because also papers lies.
Please consider those who have qualified but they missed their names in the list, kept on waiting for an sms to be told that vetting was completed on Friday 3rd arriving at the office while other counties still doing that portal is closed why close others early
This deployment and promotion is very unfair to teachers in grades C3 to C4….C5. There’s NO PROMOTION NOR SALARY INCREMENT. Despite having been in one grade donkey years….it’s only benefiting C1 & C2…. ITS UNFAIR …. very discriminating and hence illegal
