TSC Urge Teachers To Embrace TPD, Says Its Good For Their Progress

TSC Urge Teachers To Embrace TPD.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has encouraged teachers to take the Teachers Professional Development (TPD) course, claiming that it is beneficial to their professional development.
Responding to claims that TPD was causing problems for teachers already on the job, TSC Commissioner Timon Oyucho stated that the training will make teachers more globally competitive, so teachers should not get cold feet.
“Teaching like other professions requires one to undergo continuous upgrading for effective service delivery. A Judge of the High Court will always acquire a practicing certificate that is always renewable,” argued Oyucho.
Sigor MP Peter Lochakapong expressed concern that his office was receiving requests for National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) bursaries from teachers interested in enrolling in TPD courses.
Some attendees at the meeting urged the commission to investigate options in which the employer would cover the costs of teacher training for those already in the classroom.
Last month, TSC directed teachers to step up their game in order to meet the requirements of the Competence-Based Curriculum (CBC).
TSC CEO Nancy Macharia stated that with the change in curriculum, the role of teachers has fundamentally changed because it should be guided by the needs of the learners and the curriculum.
Teachers, she claims, must use differentiated modes of instruction and assessment in order for students to benefit individually and progress meaningfully.

“For teachers to meet the needs of the 21st-century learners; they should possess additional skills that include; a learner-centred classroom, students as learners, users, and producers of digital content and project-based learning,” Macharia said.
She stated that these are the skills that CBC expects of teachers and that they must therefore improve their pedagogical skills and content knowledge.
Macharia pointed out that TSC has no other teachers, implying that the in-service teachers must step up their game.

She stated that by April 2022, the commission will be training secondary teachers on CBC. “I urge you to familiarize yourselves with the CBC since the first cohort will join junior secondary in 2023,” she said.
According to Macharia, the commission planned to address the performance gaps identified through teachers’ performance appraisal and development (TPAD) and performance contracts through teachers’ professional development (TPD) programs.
