How to apply for TSC promotion in 2023

As a teacher, if you have been in the same position for years, it might be easy to assume that TSC promotion comes along once in a while. However, you have to do more than just thinking to make it to the next level. So, which tutors are eligible for preferment and how do you apply for it?

Teachers Service Commission (TSC), just like any other government agency, periodically offers upgrades to some of its employees. Since there isn’t a specific period where the elevations are announced, many prefer searching for the latest TSC news on promotions of teachers with higher qualifications now and then. While identifying these vacancies is easy, the application procedure might be a little complicated.

Teachers Service Commission TSC promotion requirements

Before jumping straight to the procedural part, it is imperative to talk about these qualifications. We have listed them according to their teaching levels for easy identification.

Primary school teachers

As a primary school tutor, you should have the following minimum requirements:

  • A minimum KCSE Mean Grade of C plain
  • A Primary Teacher Education (PTE) certificate
  • Visually impaired tutors should have a PTE certification and a minimum KCSE aggregate of C-

Secondary school teachers

The following are required:

  • C+ KCSE mean grade
  • A diploma in Education or a postgraduate diploma or a Bachelor’s degree in Education

Higher institution dons

The following are the lowest qualifications needed:

  • C+ Mean Grade in KCSE
  • A diploma in the subject you are teaching
  • In case you have a C-, a certificate, degree, or a diploma in your specialty. In addition to this, you should have a diploma in Technical Education.

Special needs education teachers

In this category, the following are checked:

  • A KCSE minimum grade of C+

The above are only the minimum requirements needed. It means that you still qualify for an elevation if you have anything above the said grades. For instance, the promotion of P1 teachers with degrees is possible as they are above the lowest possible qualifications needed.

  28. Paul Odhiambo Mwamu

    The teachers service commission Kenya, please kindly take note of an apparent gap in the career progression guidelines especially for senior teachers in primary schools(senior teacher 2b-C2 -TSC scale 7 ). Please remember, these category of teachers served for long as senior teachers and earned responsibility allowance of as low as kshs.150 on their payslips long before CBA/CPG was launched in July2017.Unfortunately, these long serving administrators in primary schools cannot apply for DHT posts as application system reject them as unqualified in terms of grade. While some of them hold diplomas and degees.Andat the same time, their counterparts who were deputies and also earned responsibility allowances before 2017 CBA and CPG easily apply for HT and get promoted. Please check payslips of these teachers before CBA and also letters of appointment for this group of teachers. Otherwise these group of teachers will never progress in adminstration despite great wealth of administrative experience. Thank you. God bless tsc, God bless Kenya.

    I have served as a a senior teacher 2 from 2020.I have worked with the headteacher and his deputy to ensure smooth learning. I perform duties of the headteacher in his absence. I am the dorm mistress and games teacher. I am kindly requesting if I can get a promotion to senior teacher, since the school doesn’t have one. I believe I can deliver since I have that experience. I have worked and stayed in the same institution for 13 years as a teacher. I hope that you will consider my request. Thanks in advance as I look forward for a positive response. Thank you
