The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has postponed the County based TPAD2 training sessions for teachers. The exercise that has been running for the past few weeks has now been halted as a result of the spiraling covid19 infection rates among the teachers.

Teachers who were hoping to be inducted on the new TSC appraisal system will now have to wait a little bit longer.

“Following the upsurge of the Covid-19 disease in the County with reported Cases amongst our teachers in the County, the Commission has with immediate effect stopped all scheduled TPAD Training for Principals, Headteachers and teachers.” Reads a memo sent by Laikipia County TSC Director, Mrs. Murrey.

So far, over 30 teachers have succumbed to the killer disease since schools were reopened for form four, class eight and grade four learners.

She is directing that the exercise shall resume only upon advise and that all other activities/meetings that require gathering be equally cancelled and instead encourages virtual meetings.

She warns of dire consequences should the directive be defied by Sub County Directors.

“This directive should be taken with the seriousness it deserves. Observance of the MOH Protocol on the containment of the Covid-19 MUST be observed at all times in and outside the working stations.” She reiterates.

TSC Boss Dr. Nancy Macharia on Monday ordered teachers aged 58 years and above together with those with pre-existing conditions to stay at home. Macharia said that it is a Presidential directive and the teachers will not be sacked for staying at home.

“As this is a presidential directive, your employers will not sack you. The TSC has negotiated for teachers to be covered for Covid-19-related illnesses.” She told the media on Monday.

In other Counties the exercise has already been concluded. For instance, about 500 teachers, school heads and principals were successfully trained in Nyamira South Sub County; found in Nyamira County. Primary school teachers were trained for on November 12th and 13th at Kebirigo Boys High School with their secondary school counterparts being inducted on November 16th and 17th; at the same venue.

The exercise was presided by the TSC County Director in Nyamira, Wilson Koros. He said the Commission was taking the appraisals serious and future promotions will entirely depend on an individual teacher’s TPAD performance.
