Financial Setbacks Proves Futile For Teachers Recruitment And Salary Increase.

Despite the efforts of Kuppet and KNUT, the Teachers Service Commission may be unable to increase teachers’ pay increases in 2022.

This comes after new information revealed that the commission was given far less than what it requested.

TSC suffered a major setback when MPs only allocated Sh2.5 billion to hire 5,000 permanent and pensionable teachers.

This is in comparison to the 25,000 requested by TSC. The commission also asked for 12,000 interns, but only 6,000 were approved at a cost of Sh1.2 billion.

Meanwhile, Macharia stated that Sh1.15 billion will be spent on teacher training in Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

The training will be geared toward teachers of languages in grades one, two, and three. It will also train secondary school department heads in CBC, as well as primary and secondary school administrators.

The teachers’ employer unveiled a teaching model to address the teacher shortage by introducing online lessons in schools. In the new model, a single teacher will use Zoom to conduct lessons in multiple schools at the same time.

Teachers protested the Teachers Service Commission’s (TSC) offer of a non-monetary 2021-2025 CBA in July, citing hard economic times.

Though the CBA did not include any immediate changes to teacher salaries, TSC stated that it was not the end of the talks and that they will hold another meeting on the subject in less than a year to review the signed agreement.

TSC is currently implementing the first phase of the 2021-2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). The 2021-2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement, which went into effect in July 2021, is a non-monetary CBA.


As a result, teachers will continue to receive their current salaries under the final phase of the 2017-2021 CBA.
