TSC Turns down request by teachers unions to release names of promoted teachers

In a war of supremacy and revelations the teachers service commission TSC has shut down request by teachers unions to reveal release the list of all recently promoted teachers.

Both the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) and the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) are urging the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to disclose the names of promoted teachers.

Knut has formally requested the TSC to release the guidelines used during the interviews conducted for teachers in December 2023 and January 2024.

Expressing concern, Knut believes that the TSC is not being transparent regarding the promotion details of teachers. The union questions the reluctance of the commission to provide the actual names corresponding to the TSC numbers published for audit purposes.

The union is concerned that without disclosing the actual names alongside their TSC numbers, even deceased teachers could potentially appear on the merit list.

There’s widespread outcry regarding the employer’s reluctance or refusal to release the names of successful candidates for auditing purposes.

The published lists display a mix of very old and extremely recent TSC numbers, raising suspicion among observers.

There is growing evidence of teachers who were overlooked but appear to be more qualified than those included in the list.

The Commission maintains that only those listed will receive promotion letters.

Several counties have already received the soft copy of the letters and begun printing and distributing them.

The TSC has posted a 724-page list on its website, containing only TSC numbers of the 36,505 successfully promoted teachers from the December and January interviews.

All 36,505 successful teachers will receive promotion letters and must submit five Chapter Six documents.
