TSC Salary Scale: Teacher’s Salaries In Kenya (Primary & Secondary) 2023
How much do Kenyan Teachers make per month as their salary?.
Here is the new TSC salary scale for both Primary Teachers and Secondary Teachers.
During the last Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), Kenyan teacher’s salaries were increased in all phases.
In this article, we have listed all the updated salaries for all teachers in Kenya whether a secondary teacher or a primary teacher.
As you might know, the Teacher’s Service Commission (TSC) has recently changed the grading system of teachers, removing some groups and adding other new groups in the grading system.
Which means that the old TSC grading system will not be used any more.
In this article, on teacher’s salary in Kenya listed below, we have used the new TSC grading system which includes some new job groups while others were completely removed.
This is the new entry grade for all primary and secondary teachers.
We can all agree that primary and secondary teachers are among the most important people in our society because they play a huge role in nurturing our children as they grow older.
