There are teachers who served as senior teachers in the defunct Scheme of service and were not properly placed or considered when the current CPG was put in place instead, they were reduced to ordinary teachers. This lowered their personality amongst their colleagues and in the school community. Now that they hard served as administrators why are they not considered for C3 in this new arrangement? Don’t you feel that this calibre of teachers are so much demotivated and need to be considered first? Was CPG a tool that was brought in place to demote them or finish them? I believe that TSC CEO should consider promoting all Senior Teachers who served in the previous Teachers Scheme of Service.
Can ateacher who acted as a senior teacher without a letter from TSC, but a recommendation letter by the H/T and staff minutes from the teachers (all these scanned and send to TSC) qualify to be a senior teacher?
get a letter from the tsc county director showing ur acting
It has been a challenge as so many codes are sent at ago by the tsc
What does it mean a teacher serving in job group c2 for 3years then gets to job group c3 while a section of senior teachers stagnated at c2 since 2015?
Some senior teachers were promoted and have their letters of promotion but were never effected since 2017.
TSC are you really fair??
Having served as a senior teacher as a Senior Teacher 2 as from 2017,am I entitled to any Promotional?
Tsc to be serious with stagnating teachers,How can teachers with degree and served in service for 10+years remain in same job group almost retirement
Senior teacher ll C2 in primary schools is a promotional grade. Now for one to be promoted to senior teacher l C3 the CPG demands that it is by competitive selection and availability of vacancies in the school which must have over 1000 pupils. Now that JSS have taken grade seven reducing the number of pupils in primary schools. if we still follows the CPG policy how will TSC promote these category of teachers?
On the last TSC promotion advert the senior teacher ll C2 in the areas not ASAL were not included what’s going to happen to them?
Additionally there are many primary schools with no D/head teachers and these schools are not in ASAL areas and the senior teacher ll C2 in these schools have been acting for more than 4years. According to the CPG policy for one to be promoted to D/head teacher ll C4 one must have served as senior teacher l C3 for a minimum period of 3 years as a senior teacher ll C2. How will these category of teachers going to be promoted? The employer TSC needs to clarify this situation for these category of teachers so that they can know their career path properly.

I am also a victim , I have served as a c2 since 2017 , I have been acting as a deputy headteacher for over a year without a confirmation, please TSC consider this disadvantaged group of c2 in primary schools
I feel a p1 teacher having taken a degree programme at Mmust is fit to teach Juniour secondary school even though attained a C.This is because of the many units and duration taken even without pup.
Interested. Next year by God’s grace.
