TSC Employment Letters/Letter of Probation Full Details. Employment Terms

Once recruited by The Teachers Service Commission, a newly employed teacher receives a letter of employment (Letter of probationary employment) after successfully vetting the teachers’ documents. 
The employment letter is sent to the teacher through the school where he/she has been posted to work under TSC terms.


In the letter, TSC spells out the entry-level of the teacher i.e Secondary School Teacher II for teachers entering the profession as degree holders. The station where the teacher has been posted and the subjects to be handled are also indicated in the employment letter.

Employment terms 

A newly hired teacher works on probation for not less than six (6) months. In some cases the probation duration may be prolonged if the teacher’s achievement is poor; at most unfortunate, the teacher’s job may be stopped before the finish of the probation period. 

To be confirmed on permanent terms, the principal or the headteacher fills a recommendation form for the teacher that is sent to the commission for approval.

The teacher is required to advance to the posted school as indicated on the employment letter and has a grace duration of one month from the first operative date; as stated in the letter.

The employment letter also outlines out the exact basic salary per annum depending on the entry grade of an individual. The teacher is also empowered to allowances pegged on his/ her grade every month. 

Allowances received by the teacher include House allowance and Commuter allowance. Teachers operating in regions labeled as hardship areas receive hardship allowance on top of the two allowances. Those working at schools with differently-abled learners also collect Special allowane.

A teacher is required to teach in any part of Kenya where TSC perceives his/her services are needed. Additionally, a teacher will have to work at the primary work station, where the initial posting has been made, for not more than five (5) years before requesting a swap/transfer.

In some circumstances, such a teacher may be shifted to another workplace under special concern from TSC on grounds of Medical, insecurity among others that the commission deems fit. 

The employment letter always copied to the commission’s County Director and the Principal/Head of the institution
