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, expects tutors to teach a minimum of twenty seven (27) lessons per week. This, though, depends on individual school’s Curriculum Based Establishment. Consequently, different teachers plying their trade in various schools have varied numbers of lessons per week. This is also due to variations in staffing at different learning institutions. A teacher (secondary school level) at the same time is expected to teach two subjects; expect those handling subjects like English.

The teachers are appraised under the Career Progression Guidelines (CPG) by using the Teacher Performance Appraisal and Development (TPAD) tool. The Commission has developed a lesson attendance monitoring tool referred to as ‘TPAD Lesson Attendance Summary Sheet’. This form is to be filled weekly by the teacher’s appraiser.
