The teachers Service Commission, TSC, has laid plans geared towards the introduction of Teacher Professional Development (TPD) Training. Through an advert christened: “CONSULTANCY SERVICE FOR DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A SCHOOL BASED TEACHER SUPPORT SYSTEM (SBTSS) FOR ENGLISH SUBJECT,” the TSC has asked organizations with training capacity to apply for consideration to design the TPD school based courses. The first phase of this training will cover piloting of English delivery in both primary and secondary schools in some selected sub- counties countrywide.
The advert reads:
“The overall aim of this assignment is to enhance continuous Teacher Professional Development(TPD) for teachers of English subject. The consultancy will provide technical support to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to develop and implement the school based teacher support system for the English subject in targeted sub-counties.”
The winning consultancy contract bidder shall be expected to:
(i) Support TSC to establish a School Based Teacher Support System (SBTSS) aimed at
providing professional development training in subject matter as well as pedagogical content knowledge to teachers of English in the targeted sub-counties.
(ii) Support TSC in monitoring and evaluation of these activities including data collection, analysis and preparation of reports. This activity is based on results based financing modality. The institution will therefore be required to support the TSC in collection and validation of the required data for the relevant Disbursement Linked Indicators (DLIs) and relevant indicators in the project’s results framework.
An independent firm will be recruited separately to review and verify
results achieved under the SBTSS program for the English subject, and other DLIs under this project.
Once rolled out, teachers shall be expected to attend the training during holidays.“During the SBTSS initial phase, training will be provided for about 5,667
primary school teachers and 1,700 secondary school teachers for English in
targeted sub counties at INSET school based centres. Based on the evaluation of
the first two years of implementation of SBTSS, the intervention will be scaled
up to cover all primary and secondary teachers of English in the over 5,500
primary schools and additional 1,500 secondary schools in the targeted subcounties.” The advert further states.
The training shall be executed during the current Collective Bargaining Cycle, CBA. “The assignment will be undertaken over a six-year period between January 2018 and October
2022 and will have a total duration of 12 months per year. The first phase of this assignment will commence in January 2018 or shortly thereafter and will involve design of SBTSS implementation plan and verification of TPAD data on teachers’ performance gaps in
English,” reads the advert.
