The list of TSC Teachers affected by the April TSC Mass Transfers and Delocalization will be posted HERE on May 10 once the processing of the 2022 transfer applications is complete. Click HERE to Read Today’s Latest TSC News.

The nationwide exercise began yesterday and will see teachers from both primary and secondary schools transferred to different schools across the country.

 

Teachers are concerned about mass transfers next term as the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) rationalizes staffing across the country.

 

When it comes to transfers, the TSC’s delocalization program has been a thorn in the flesh for teachers. Teachers have complained that the transfers are tearing families apart.

 

 

 

The transfers, on the other hand, are a huge relief for teachers who are married and have declared their marital status, because the commission ordered that they be transferred to the same neighborhood as much as possible.

 

The exercise, according to Commission CEO Nancy Macharia, is intended to ensure that all schools have a balanced teacher-to-learner ratio before the start of the new academic year. On April 25, 2022, schools will reopen for the first term

 

The nationwide exercise began yesterday and will see teachers from both primary and secondary schools transferred to different schools across the country.

 

 

Ms. Macharia stated in a circular to all TSC regional directors that despite the commission’s numerous efforts to address teacher shortages, the situation is exacerbated by irregular teacher distribution.

 

She noted that if the issue was left unchecked, it will have a negative impact on learning outcomes in our learning institutions.

 

She directed regional directors to work with county directors in their respective regions to coordinate teacher rationalization and ensure equitable distribution across the school.

 

“Any arising movements conducted in the local areas must have a human face and must be well discussed with all relevant offices to ensure equity for all of our learners in tandem with existing staffing norms,” said Ms. Macharia.

 

 

 

According to TSC, there are 114,581 teachers needed in primary and secondary schools.

 

Age, health status, disabilities, marital status, and time served at the current school are all factors to consider when transferring teachers.

 

Teachers over the age of 56, as well as those with proven terminal illnesses, will be exempt from the transfer. Others are disabled teachers who have the necessary certification

 

“The committee will evaluate each case on its own merit, taking into consideration the supporting medical documents, availability and accessibility to the appropriate medical facilities, among other factors in the proposed station,” she said.

 

 

Transfer Eligibility

 

To be eligible for transfers, teachers must have served in a station for at least three years, or five years for North Eastern and other areas, respectively, since their first appointment unless otherwise authorized by the commission’s secretaries

 

Priority should also be given to teachers who have applied for and are eligible for the transfer. Ms. Macharia stated that in cases where teachers meet the transfer criteria, the commission will consider first in, gender balance where applicable, and teacher security.

 

“Henceforth, teachers transfer will be a continuous exercise to address staffing gaps and to ensure equitable distribution and optimal teacher utilization,” she added. She said the staff balancing exercises are intended to be complete by May 9.

 

POINTS TO NOTE

Transfer requests are normally considered for approval by the Appointment Board, once, at the end of the year. However, the Commission can transfer a teacher at its discretion. A teacher wishing to be considered for transfer should do so by:

  1. Filling in a transfer application form through the head of the institution. Transfer forms are available at TSC offices countrywide or can be downloaded from the TSC website.
  2. Completed application forms should be sent to the TSC or its agents by the head of the institution.
  3. Transfers for primary school teachers within the county will be handled by the TSC County Director.
  4. Transfers outside the county will be handled by the TSC headquarters. Applications for transfer to tertiary institutions are processed at the TSC headquarters.

Transfer requests submitted to the Commission will be acknowledged promptly. The decision of the Appointment Board will later be communicated to the teacher. Transfers will be granted subject to the availability of vacancy and replacement
