Proposed Teachers Salary and Allowances Increment 2021 – 2025

Proposed TSC salary increment for teachers

TSC has now forwarded the new proposed salary increment for teachers to the Salaries and Remuneration Commission, SRC, to prepare for the new 2021 – 2025 TSC CBA agreement with the teachers’ unions. If accepted, the new teachers salary increment will take effect from July 1st, 2021, in four phases, until July 2025. In the new 2021 TSC CBA, teachers in the lower job groups win big.

This comes amid protests from the teacher’s unions. KNUT had demanded a basic salary increment between 120% to 200%, which TSC blatantly rejected.

However, the new perks seem to fall within the KUPPET’s proposal of a salary increment between 30 to 70%. That is for teachers in the lower cadres who felt left out in the just concluded 2017/2020 CBA.

The teachers’ unions accuse TSC of forwarding salary increment proposals to the SRC without consultations and engagements with them.

KNUT wanted TSC to peg house, commuter, and leave allowances increment to 50% of teachers’ basic salaries. KUPPET on the other hand wanted TSC to harmonize house allowances of other areas with that of teachers in major municipalities.

KUPPET also requested TSC to introduce township allowance to teachers in major towns.

Details of the 2021 – 2025 TSC Salary Proposal Sent to the SRC

In the new TSC 2021 CBA salary increment proposal for teachers, TSC suggests a basic salary increment of 32% for teachers in job grades B5 to C3.

Teachers in job groups C4 to D5 will take home a salary increment of 16%.

B5 is the entry-level for teachers in primary schools and C2 for teachers in secondary.

TSC also proposes house allowance to be increased by 10%. Commuter allowance and leave allowance would be increased by 20%.

If SRC accepts the new TSC CBA for basic salary increment, here is the CBA breakdown of what each teacher will take home. B5 to C3 taking home an increment of 32%, and C4 to D5 gaining 16%.

This means a primary school teacher in job group B5 will take home Ksh. 28,718 – 35,897 up from Ksh. 21,756 – 27,195.

    Thankyou for all the information. When does a teacher move from one grade to the other having been in one grade for more than four years?

    1. Hi Jane. A newly employed teacher moves to the next job group after 3 years, but has to submit a promotion request to TSC. No interviews required for common cadre job groups.
      For primary a teacher will move from B5 to C1 after serving in B5 for 3 years.
      Secondary diploma teachers who entered the service at C1 will move to C2. Those in job grade C2 (teachers with degrees) move to C3.
      From there on you will have to attend interviews for the advertised posts for higher groups provided you have served in the current grade for at least 3 years and you are under teacher performance appraisal.

    Hi, help me understand why we c2 were not promoted among others and yet we did not reach out maximum pay by 2018i.e sh.43k+

    1. Hi if you started with job group C1 the common cadre is C2. That’s you move to C2 automatically after 3 years. To move to the next job group afterwards you must go through an interview provided you have been in the current job group for at least 3 years.

  3. Hi help me understand when senior teacher 2b’s can be promoted to deputy heads having served for more than four years. Then also is ones scale Of paymend a requirement for one to qualify for an invitation for an interview?

  4. Titus Wambua

    Hi,can I say there is disparity in promotion coz I’m administrator senior tr 2b and I’m now 4yrs in the same job as from 2017 thoughg served as senior tr as from 2008 and now can’t propel forward not be called for an interview, You have my diploma certificate for ecde, what I’m I in the commission coz you acknowledged the receipt of my certificate long time ago but nothing has been done.

  5. How can a senior tr 2b (C2)get to C3, The system can’t allow us to apply.Diploma trs in secondary schools have been called for an interview but diploma trs and degrees in primary option nobody has talked about it.Why is it that house allowance is not paid equally and yet it’s once choice to sleep in either a self contained rooms or single rooms.
