When Matiangi made steps to change KENYAN media waves digital, many doubted. Others cried foul. Many said it could not be possible. But it took place. That is what TSC is doing today. With the digitalization of these services, teachers will spend very little in sending the required documents to TSC Through EMS and other services. This process has begun.
Each service of the Commission will have an online portal, where the teacher will simply key in his or her details and await affirmative action.
There will be no more sending hard copies to the headquarters and this will save teachers a great deal, both financially and timewise.
We have info that Teachers service commission is going paperless and that currently only 20% of teachers files are yet to be digitized.
If the move is embraced fully, then there will be no more sending hard copy documents to the headquarters or receiving hard copy documents from the headquarters.
Among the TSC services that have remained analog and are soon getting digitalized include; sending recruitment letters to newly recruited teachers and heads/county directors, sending promotion letters, sending transfer application forms, receiving transfer letters, requesting and receiving confirmation under PNP terms, sending casualties, sending study leave letters, among others.
MUGALA Muuwe but haki yake mpe. I have issues with TSC ON many issues, including the current salary issues where teachers are complaining of double salary deductions. But on DIGITIZATION… I say DOLE.. BIG UP TSC.
