TSC to train teachers on how to use the new appraisal system, TPAD 2
The new TSC Teachers appraisal system, TPAD 2.

The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, requires teachers to be appraised under the Career Progression Guidelines, CPG. All teachers are required to comply with performance standards and shall in the course of duty maintain professional documents and records that facilitate curriculum delivery.

There is a checklist provided by TSC and it is advisable that you have a look at it. This checklist is intended to assist the teachers to maintain professional documents that can be assessed by supervisors for the purpose of teacher appraisal. The checklist ensures a teacher has prepared and maintained all the required Professional documents.
