Newly employed teachers both in permanent and pensionable and internship terms will no longer wait for months to receive their first salary instead they shall receive salaries in their first month of employment.
TSC has inaugurated the online system which is one measure by the commission meant to improve service delivery to teachers.
The first group of teachers to benefit from the new Teacher Service Commission reforms is the group of 9000 teachers who were employed end of July and reported to their stations from the 1st of September.
The online system will cut delays in the disbursement of teachers’ salaries as soon as the casualties are received by TSC.
The Teacher Service Commission CEO Dr Nancy Macharia confirmed this good news to teachers while addressing the mass on 2019/2023 strategic plan.
Further on a circular dated 24th August to all education field officers, Dr Macharia said that the filing of entry returns and exit returns have been shifted to the online system.
” No manual filing of casualty returns for newly employed teachers. In the newly implemented online module casualty returns shall be purelydone online”. Dr Nancy Macharia said.
In the manual filing, heads of institutions usually write entry and exit returns (Casualty Returns) whenever a new teacher reports to the institution and the information is sent to TSC. These casualty returns are subsequently used by the teacher service commission (TSC) to process teachers’ salaries.
According to Macharia, the initiative is intended to phase out all the manual processes on issuing, submitting and processing of posting, transfers, deployment letters and other related returns in amove to improve service delivery to teachers.
