Teachers now get a new TSC disability allowance, according to the 2021–2025 CBA.

Teachers are essential to society because they mold the brains of coming generations. It’s a career that needs commitment and diligence. The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has adopted numerous allowances to improve teachers’ well-being since it understands how important it is to support them.

The Disability Guide Allowance is one such benefit, intended to help teachers who have disabilities financially.

According to Article 54(1) of the Constitution, the Teachers Service Commission recognizes the rights of people with special needs.

By promoting an environment that enhances their access to opportunities and services inside the Commission, this policy aims to end all forms of discrimination against employees with special needs.

By making certain that workers with specific needs:

Are treated with respect and decency, and are spoken to and referred to in a way that isn’t degrading.

ii. Receive the facilities they need to move around the workplace more easily.

iii. Have access to tools and materials to get around limitations brought on by their impairment.

iv. Be in possession of the relevant knowledge utilizing the best available communication methods, including but not limited to braille and sign language.

The commission’s endeavor to guarantee that instructors are well-cared for, whatever of their circumstances, includes the TSC Disability Guide Allowance.

This allowance demonstrates the commitment to ensuring that disabilities are not a deterrent to pursuing a career in education.

Teachers working in a variety of grades and TSC scales are eligible for the Disability Guide Allowance. Since it is not restricted to any particular grade levels, teachers at different career stages can take advantage of it.

The kind, scope, and severity of a disability are determined by the Commission in collaboration with the National Council of Persons with Disabilities (NCPWD). Any employee with special needs is required to abide by the following:

i. Declare a disability while applying for a job,

ii. Declare a disability that develops while on the job,

iii. Register with the NCPWD and get a disability registration certificate, which must be carefully reviewed before being accepted,

iv. Immediately after being registered by the NCPWD, declare their handicap status within a reasonable time frame that is acceptable to the Commission, which will be decided at a later time.

The allowance is given to people with disabilities in order to assist them in meeting the extra financial demands imposed by their situation.

According to the data previously supplied, the particular amount educators earn for the Disability Guide Allowance can change according on their grade and TSC scale. The Disability Guide Allowance for educators at various grade levels is summarized as follows:

Teachers’ TSC Disability Guide Allowance

Grade 5: B5: 20,000

Grade 1 (C1): 20,000

grade 7: 20,000

grade 8: 20,000

Grade 9: C4: 20,000

Grade 10 C5: 20,000

D1: 20,000 (Grade 11).

D2: 20,000 (12th grade)

D3: 20,000 (Grade 13).

D4: 20,000 (Grade 14).

Grade 15: D5: 20,000

The compensation offers teachers essential financial support. It acknowledges that costs associated with healthcare, accessibility, and other requirements are frequently increased for people with disabilities.

TSC wants to lessen some of the financial challenges that these committed instructors are carrying by providing this allowance.

Intervention techniques for disabled employees

The Commission will adopt the following tactics to address the challenges faced by workers with special needs:

i. Create and keep a database of all employees with special needs that includes information on the kind, degree, and occurrence of each handicap while they were working.

Employers with special requirements should be placed in positions and stations that will improve their performance.

iv. Pay employees with special needs the prescribed allowances where it is deemed necessary for them to execute their duties effectively,

v. Aid special needs employees in requesting PAYE tax exemptions from the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) or any other appropriate authority.

Supporting employees who become disabled while performing their jobs in conformity with the Work Injury Benefits Act of 2007

x. Assure that all employees, regardless of their physical condition, are included in the Commission’s programs.

Strengthen partnerships and collaboration with appropriate government organizations and stakeholders on issues that affect employable people with disabilities.

Teachers with disabilities receive additional benefits, such as a PAYE tax exemption. They also get additional compensation.
