The Teachers Service Commission has made slight changes on the upgrading program of the primary school teachers.
TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia says that as primary school teachers certificates become outdated, there is need for this group of teachers to upgrade. Macharia however insists that all primary school teachers will be employed despite what they hold.
In July this year, the Teachers Service Commission rendered primary school teachers certificates outdated. Macharia argued that primary teachers who hold certificates are less productive as compared to those ones with diplomas.
TSC therefore directed all P1 teachers with certificates to go back to college and acquire diplomas for them to be employed.
This brought uncertainty among primary school teacher certificate holders because the program is expensive. TSC however heard their cries and reversed the trend. Here is the revised diploma upgrading program for P1 teachers.
Primary school teachers are urged to move with speed and upgrade as this will give them an upper hand in employment.
