TSC opens portal for Term 3 TPAD appraisal (See instructions and deadline)

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has opened the TPAD portal for teachers to capture their appraisal data. According to the latest circular from the Commission, the TPAD online system opened on 20th May, 2021 and shall be closed on 23rd July 2021.

The Commission has at the same time given guidelines on how the TPAD will be handled, this term. For instance, teachers have been instructed to strictly adhere to TPAD calendar of activities. In the past, the Commission has penalized teachers who do not follow the stipulated calendar of activities.

A case in point is where a teacher filled all parts of the TPAD online form in the first week of the term. This should not be the case as there are parts of the form that should only be filled towards the end of the term; like the part on learners’ progress. 

School heads have been directed to ensure that all staff in their institutions have created accounts for term three of 2020 (the current term). They will at the same time appraise all teachers in their institutions before the deadline. This will prevent scenarios where some teachers fail to be appraised in good time.

Make sure to also attach necessary documents as evidence to your TSC TPAD online appraisal form. See what to attach here; Latest list of documents and evidence that should be attached to the online TPAD form.

Whereas the School Heads and Principals have express authority to cancel a teacher’s appraisal form, the Commission has now asked them not to cancel TPAD forms that are not ‘satisfactory’. Once a teacher’s TPAD form is cancelled by the Head of Institution, such a teacher is expected to start the whole appraisal process, afresh.

The ICT and TPAD champions are expected to facilitate the process and ensure 100% compliance in their schools. See also; How to ensure that your TPAD 2 online form reads 100% and not 99%.
