The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has extended the deadline for filing the teachers’ term two 2019 appraisal data. This is after the system experienced serious down times making it difficult for teachers to enter the appraisal data.
TSC holds that teachers must continue uploading their performance appraisal data as per the Career Progression Guidelines. The Commission uses data captured on the TPAD system when considering teachers for promotions. Teachers who are yet to upload their data for term 2 now have until Tuesday 27th September, 2019 to do so. This is the deadline for both the Appraisee and Appraiser.

Meanwhile, TSC has created a new user friendly portal for capturing the 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.
