Jamleck Muturi, the nominee for Teachers Service Commission (TSC) chair, seeks to improve the quality of teaching through post-college training for teachers.

Muturi, who was vetted on Thursday by the National Assembly Education Committee, also promised to implement teachers' Collective Bargaining Agreement (2017) if the House approves his nomination.

“The teacher should be motivated and able to do their mandate,” he said.

Muturi said just like other professionals such as lawyers, teachers should undergo post-graduate training to improve the quality of service.

“This is important for us to bring dignity back to the teaching profession,” he said.

Muturi holds a Bachelor of Education (Science), a Master in Business Administration, another Master in Science and Agricultural Entomology and a PhD in Agricultural Entomology.

He is currently the Agriculture, Fisheries and Cooperative executive in Embu County.

The vetting was led by Education Committee chair Florence Mutua and also attended by Nominated MP and Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) secretary general Wilson Sossion.

Sossion sought to know how Muturi will handle the issue of delocalisation of teachers spearheaded by CEO Nancy Macharia and outgoing TSC chair Lydia Nzomo.

“I will engage all parties involved and address the contentious issues,” Muturi responded.
