The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has made changes to the staffing division to enhance service delivery and efficiency. An internal memo seen by The Standard shows the staffing division has been split into two. One wing has exclusively been tasked to handle recruitment, promotions and complimenting teachers.
The second arm will deal with teachers’ postings, transfers and development.
The division is currently headed by the director of staffing, Rita Wahome. Ms Wahome assumed the position after Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia split directorate of teacher management into three divisions. Quality Assurance, Standards and Teacher Registration is headed by Reuben Nthamburi and Field Services by Mary Rotich. Under the new structure, the director of staffing will be assisted by a senior deputy director.
The memo dated August 28 says following the revised structure, the two wings of the division will be headed by deputy directors. Each wing will have an assistant deputy director who will be in charge of regions. Sources at the commission revealed that the changes aim at making decision-making and accountability easy.
