TSC to promote 50 to deputy principals
By Robert Kiplagat | April 6th 2016
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has advertised 50 vacancies for deputy principals.
County TSC Director Enow Alio said they are set to conduct interviews for deputy principals in post-primary institutions, who will be posted to different stations next term to address shortage.
Alio said graduate teachers who have served in Job Group L for more than three years, will be considered for the promotion to fill the vacant posts.
"Most of our schools do not have deputies appointed by the commission. We also intend to develop a data bank to help us plan for future promotions," said Alio.
The director said priority will be given to teachers with a mean score of six points in teaching subjects for the last three consecutive years.
"We shall also give opportunities to those who have clean professional records and have been active in co-curricular activities," he added.
Local Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) officials lauded the move, saying most schools have been operating without deputies.
"We want to welcome this move because principals in schools have really had it hard because they usually leave schools unattended when they have duties outside their stations," said Narok Kuppet Executive Secretary Charles Ngeno.
Ngeno said most of those serving have been operating on voluntary basis as they were not recognised by the commission, thus have not been enjoying their responsibility allowance.
