In 2016, the then salaries and remuneration commission did a job evaluation for teachers teaching in public schools in Kenya. This led to the Teachers Service Commission and the teachers’ unions signing a new CBA in which teachers’ salaries were enhanced and old job groups abolished. The TSC then introduced new job groups and designation codes for each category of teachers in primary and secondary schools.
In this article, you will find designation codes for primary and secondary schools and their new TSC scales and titles.
