KUPPET Wants TSC to Pay and Employ BOM Teachers

The Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) is pushing for the conversion of all Board of Management (BOM) teachers in secondary schools into TSC employment.

KUPPET cites BOM teachers’ underpayment by their institutions, lack of medical care, and inability to face disciplinary action from the Commission despite working in public schools. 

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) expressed its readiness to oversee the BOM teachers, provided funds become available.

Furthermore, TSC will hire an additional 20,000 teachers to solve the present shortage in Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) in a combined effort that will cost the government around Ksh 7.8 billion.

This came after a six-day meeting between teachers’ representatives and the commission at Sawela Lodge in Naivasha.


Senior TSC officials were conspicuously absent from a media conference hosted by the KUPPET National Executive Committee.

KUPPET requested the urgent adoption of new Group Life Cover, Group Personal Accident Cover, and Work Injury Benefits (WIBA) insurance for teachers as part of the medical scheme, and the Commission agreed to buy the services within the current fiscal year.
