The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has created a new user friendly portal for capturing the teachers’ appraisal data. The Commission has at the same time reduced the number of teaching standards to be appraised for teachers from the previous seven to five on its online appraisal portal.
To enhance implementation, the Commission has customized the TPAD tools targeting teachers serving in primary, secondary, special needs institutions and post secondary institutions, where, while the teaching standards are the same for all categories of teachers, performance indicators and verifiable evidence have been customized for various institutions.
