Teachers who were recruited by Teachers Service Commission (TSC) in July 2021 are supposed to report to their stations by 1st September. After reporting, they will start anticipating for their first salary. It is a policy that newly employed teachers to receive their first salary after at least two months. Some even receive first salaries after six 2021.
This is because it usually TSC takes some time to amend the pay roll so as to accommodate the newly employed teachers. The sooner they get the details, the faster the amendment process. It is not easier to stay longer minus salaries, especially if one is working away from home county. This article takes the new recruits through the processes and logistics involved until their first salary.
After reporting to their new stations the recruits will immediately sign their casualties and have them submitted to the teachers service commission as a confirmation that they have reported to duty. TSC then expects to have the new employees report to work immediately after submission of their casualties. The teacher is then likely to receive their first salary in the month the causality is signed.
During the first six months of employment, they will be under probation, a period set aside to asses the professionalism of the new employee. During this observation period, they will be expected to carry out their duties diligently otherwise they will be faced with a potential termination or revocation of the employment offer. The commission has also reported that is working on plans to recruit more teachers, plus teachers on internship soon so as to curb teachers shortage.
Report at the working station on the date specified by TSC in your recruitment letter.

Go to the principal’s office and remind him to write you a casualty. This is what will show when you started working and the time it reaches the TSC headquarters will determine when you start getting your salary. If it delays, your salary will delay seriously.
The details in the casualty must be very accurate to avoid being directed by TSC to write another casualty. In case the casualty is written after the reporting date, talk to your principal to back date the reporting date. (some schools have customized opening dates, later than the dates in the MOE calendar.
If possible, ask for a copy of the casualty so that you send directly to the TSC headquarters through EMS, G4S, or direct delivery. Conventionally, the casualties should be submitted to the sub county headquarters, from where the sub county TSC directors will send them to the headquarters once they reach the required number. This takes time since schools do not submit their casualties at the same time.
TSC will add you to the pay roll once it receives your casualty, and you will get your salary at the end of the month, so long as the pay roll for that month has not been closed
