TSC TPAD Calendar; Activities for week 1&2

Teachers Service Commission (TSC) in the last month listed 2,349 primary school teachers and 827 high school teachers for not filling out their Teacher Performance Appraisal and Development (TPAD) tool before deadline day.
According to the Commission, the teachers committed varied offenses leading to their listing.

TSC revealed that the tutors were having either a TPAD awaiting submission or appraisal or countersigning from the school head or that the TPAD was not complete.

After the listing, thousands of show cause letters were issued to teachers over the offenses related to TPAD.

In the last term, teachers were given until the 6th of April to fill TPAD.

This simply means that teachers should ensure they fill the TPAD on time and stick to the TPAD calendar of activities to avoid a last-minute rush.

Teachers should plan meetings before as per the TPAD calendar of activities to avoid rushing in the last days.

The meeting should be held during the last week of the school holiday and all teachers should attend including the head of the school.

School heads should ensure that teachers should provide their professional documents in the first week after schools open for approval to be done.

Starting from the second week, teachers who include both appraisees and appraisers should start undertaking lesson observations and identifying and documenting teacher’s professional gaps. This shall happen throughout the tenth week.

Teachers should also activate their TPAD account for the third term on time after opening for easy access.
