Race Against Time As TSC Set To Close Tpad Portal For Term Three Today

Teachers employed by the teachers service commission are currently racing against time to fill and submit their Professional and Development appraisal before midnight.

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Curriculum Support Officers (CSO) have warned teachers who have not submitted their term three appraisals.

The Commission is expected to close the Teacher Performance Appraisal Development (TPAD) portal by midnight today and teachers including school administrators are required to appraise and submit their ratings early before the dateline.

Teachers who fail to take part in TPAD risk being issued with show cause and warning letters among other disciplinary actions.

In the recently updated TPAD portal the Commission has also allowed teachers to enroll and choose their preferred Teacher Professional Development (TPD) service provider.

The teachers’ employer said the appraisal system has been in place since 2016 on pilot basis, and running without being contested by any teachers union.
