The 26, 000 Junior Secondary School (JSS) intern teachers who will be confirmed into Permanent and Pensionable terms (PnP) by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) by July 1, 2024 will receive an increment of salaries.

The interns have been conducting demos for the last three weeks since the schools reopened for second term lamenting of poor pay of KSh20, 000 for Junior School while those in lower primary KSh15, 000 with no allowances will be laughing to the banks to collect improved cheques.

Degree and diploma holders once confirmed on PnP will start at job Group C2, equivalent to a senior teacher at the primary school level.

The salary for Job Group C2 as per the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) 2024/2025 which will be effective from July 1, 2024 oscillates around KSh38, 286 to a maximum of KSh47, 858.
