New Salary Scales for TSC Employed Teachers

Due to the introduction of the new pension scheme, teachers’ earnings will drop further this year.

It is important to note that there are several deductions subjected to the salary of newly employed teachers.

Windows and children pension scheme, which is about 699.10 shillings, University loan recovery about 5000 shillings. It is important to note that this is only affecting teachers who benefited from HELB.

Union contribution could be Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers, KUPPET, Kenya National Union Teachers, KNUT, or Kenya Women Teachers Association, KEWOTA, PAYE.

Other deductions are either Sacco savings or loan repayment if the teacher is serving a loan. The good thing is, the figure is for teachers posted to work in other areas.

Teachers posted to work in former municipalities and other major towns and cities always earn better salaries since the commission takes into account the high cost of living in such areas.

The salary disparity is occasioned by the different in-house allowances to enable the teachers to catch up with the rhythm of the city life.
