Improved Salaries For Teachers Under CBC
Teachers employed under the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) are set to receive higher salaries in July as a new job evaluation finally recognizes their huge role in school when their current 54 billion shillings pay deal lapses.
Through a report by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC), it has disclosed that the last job evaluation was skewed, favoring school heads while leaving classroom teachers broke.
“There were significant disparities in the compensation and career progression between the institutional administrators and classroom teachers in the teaching profession as the job evaluation results for 2016/2017 did not adequately cater for the remuneration of classroom teachers. This might be attributed to poor development of job descriptions in 2016,” reads the report.
Details of the current CBA show primary school headteachers and secondary school principals were moved to higher job grades in 2016.
All primary school heads of boarding and day schools automatically moved up to Grade D1, earning between Sh77,840 to Sh93,408.
