Unlike in the past where promotion was based on teaching experience and how your students are performing TSC has changed promotion guidelines to suit the new curriculum.
In the past teachers who record high performance in their teaching subjects were promoted to another job group with higher pay or promoted to be headteachers or principals.
Also teachers who have taught for along period of time were promoted to he school heads but after the implementation of Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).
The following are the new guidelines;-
- You must be a CBC competent teacher who have undergone all training recommended by TSC.
- You must have successfully done the refresher courses which will be soon rolled out by TSC which aims at improving teachers level of professionalism.
HOW DO TEACHERS GET PROMOTED BY THE TSC?
Promotion of teachers by TSC is based on existing schemes of Service i.e the TSC Career Progression Guidelines (CPG) and/ or the Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs).
The Commission shall in promoting a teacher, consider the Appraisal Reports (Teachers Performance and Appraisal Development TPAD) submitted on termly basis.
Promotion of teachers is done in three different ways:
- Promotion on common cadre establishment
- Promotion through Teacher Proficiency Course (TPC)
- Promotion through competitive selection
WHY TSC MAY FAIL TO PROMOTE A TEACHER
The Commission may refuse to consider a teacher for promotion if the teacher has not completed:
- Two (2) years from the date he was found guiltily following a disciplinary action; or
- one (1) year from the date he was issued with an administrative warning.
If you have been found guilty of violation TSC rules and regulations you will never be promoted according to the current changes hence teachers are encouraged to do their profession with discipline and good conduct.
