How much are teachers paid? Salaries for all teachers in Kenya

New remuneration formula following the implementation of the teachers collective bargaining agreement (CBA) has seen teachers get a pay rise across all job groups. The new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was to be implemented in four phases. To date the first, second and third phases have been implemented with the fourth one expected before end of this year. So, how much are teachers paid? In this article we look at the latest salaries for both primary and secondary school teachers in various job groups and categories.

Before we can take a look at the teachers’ salaries, it is important to understand the new Salary scales and grading system used by TSC.

Salaries for teachers in Kenya: Job grades and scales

The current TSC upgrading of teachers led to the scrapping off of some job groups and merging of others. Under the new system of grading tutors, the grade that was previously known as P1, which was under Job Group G, was scrapped off and replaced with Grade B5. This grade was designated as the new entry grade for all teachers at the primary school level.

Other grades include C1, C2,C3, C4,C5,D1, D2, D3 and D4
