Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Salary Scale and Allowances are the monthly salaries of employees of the commission. It is important you know the basic monthly salaries of primary and secondary school teachers in Kenya. Below is the new salary scale of primary and secondary school teachers in Kenya

TSC new grading system

The current TSC upgrading of teachers led to the scrapping off of some job groups and merging of others. Under the new system of grading tutors, the grade that was previously known as P1, which was under Job Group G, was scrapped off and replaced with Grade B5. This grade was designated as the new entry grade for all tutors at the primary school level.

The other grades that followed were re-structured and re-named as follows:

  • J to C1
  • K to C2
  • L to C3
  • M to C4
  • N to C5

Apart from job groups J to N, there was another rank that belonged to the higher band which was designated as P, Q, and R. These three were later renamed to:

  • P to D1
  • Q to D2
  • R to D3

The Kenyan National Union of Teachers requested for additional job groups S and T, which the commission granted. Under the new grading, the two categories were named D4 and D5, respectively. The chief principals now fall under category D5 of the new grading system.

TSC new salary scale for teachers

According to the TSC salaries circular released, the Teachers Service Commission will enumerate the pay rise of different tutors according to their job groups for both the primary and secondary school tutors. The Kenyan teachers’ new salary scale will be effected on job groups ranging from H, J, K, L, M, and N.

Since the signing of the Collective Bargaining Agreement in 2016, the implementation of the three-phase cycle has been in progress, and it is currently at its third phase as per the TSC CBA implementation schedule.

Other than elongating the TSC salary scale for trainers in the Teacher-Scale 13, T-scale 12, and T-scale 9, the commission has also revised some of the allowances such as commuter, hardship, and annual leave. However, all the other subsidies will remain unchanged.

New salary structure for teachers in Kenya

In this 3rd phase, Henry Rotich, the National Treasury Cabinet Secretary, stated that a total of three billion Kenyan shillings had been allocated. This amount will cater for new recruitment, recurrent expenditure as well as the implementation of this 3rd CBA phase. Below is the TSC salary scale per job group according to the KNUT latest news on teachers pay as per the third phase of the CBA:

  • Chief Principal – Ksh. 165, 089 (minimum), and Ksh. 200, 928 (maximum)
  • Senior Principal – Ksh. 143,748 (minimum) Ksh. 174,270 (maximum)
  • Principal GAT I – Ksh. 129,527 (minimum) Ksh. 155,894 (maximum)
  • Principal GAT II – Ksh. 80,190 (minimum) Ksh. 97,290 (maximum)
  • Senior GAT – Ksh. 69,590 (minimum) Ksh. 83,840 (maximum)
  • GAT I – Ksh. 61,910 (minimum) Ksh. 71,880 (maximum)
  • GAT II – Ksh. 46,020 (minimum) Ksh. 56,590 (maximum)
  • GAT III – Ksh. 34,662 (minimum) Ksh. 39,918 (maximum)
  • ATS IV – Ksh. 28,323 (minimum) Ksh. 33,662 (maximum)
  • P1 – Ksh. 25,692 (minimum) Ksh. 30,304 (maximum)

Some of the tutors will have to walk home empty-handed since their increment was concluded during the first two phases of CBA implementation. Secondary school tutors under the current job group C2, formerly known as job group K with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education or any other of its equivalent, will not be receiving any pay rise during this 3rd phase.

It means that the TSC job group k salary scale remains at a minimum of Ksh. 34, 955, and a maximum of Ksh. 43, 694.

Similarly, some secondary school teachers’ salaries in Kenya will not be affected as they belong to the non-increment group for the third phase. The other categories of trainers whose salary increment was only scheduled for the 1st and 2nd phase are:

  • Secondary school tutors with a Diploma in Education (grade C1)
  • Primary tutors at job group B5

TSC Kenya graduate trainee salary

The Teachers Service Commission has lined up more than 10 000 posts to be filled by interns, also known as the graduate trainee. The successful applicants will be absorbed into teaching for one year since the internship is scheduled for twelve months.

The teacher’s trainees are entitled to a monthly stipend of Ksh. 10, 000 for primary school trainees and Ksh. 15, 000 for secondary school trainees. However, this amount is subject to statutory deductions where applicable.

With the implementation of the three CBA phases, the new TSC salaries and grading system for teachers has come to benefit them after a long period of low-pay. Both the primary and secondary school teachers will become the biggest gainers in the Kenyan economy.
