The Public Service Commission promoted 3,353 Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) trainers in the last 4 weeks. PSC Chairperson Amb. Anthony Muchiri observed that some TVET trainers had stagnated in the same Job groups for over 20 years, and that the promotion aims to motivate them.
Amb. Muchiri was speaking during his official closing of the 2021/2022 Values and Principles Compliance Evaluation Report dissemination to the TVETs service sector through Webinar. The dissemination that started on 28th February and ended today, 3rd March 2023 targeted MDAs, Public Universities, Constitutional Commissions and TVETs.
"We did notice that you (TVET trainers) were treated unfairly and embarked on a process to ensure you are motivated and can hold your heads high," said the PSC Chairperson.
Amb. Anthony Muchiri however expressed dissatisfaction with the low compliance rates with the Value and Principles of public service in the TVET service sector. According to the report, the TVET institutions' compliance level stood at 41.7%.
"It is worth noting that the Value and Principles compliance level in TVETs improved by 1.7% to 41.7% compared to the previous year; this is still below average and is unacceptable," said Amb. Muchiri.
He also noted that the Commission will be seeking to establish the causes of low compliance with Value and Principles of Public Service in TVETS and put in appropriate intervention measures.
"The Commission will not hesitate to take stern actions on non-compliance in public institutions as required by the law," he said.
The webinar was attended by Commission Deputy Secretary Mr. Remmy Mulati, the PSC Values technical team led by the Director Compliance and Quality Assurance (CQA), Mr. Simon Wachinga, Human Resource Director for TVETs in the Ministry of Education Mr. Elicanah Mosiori, Principals, Registrars and officers from the TVETs.
