The Teachers Service Commission requires Sh300 million to finance field services in counties and subcounties, a report submitted to a Parliament committee shows.
TSC CEO Nancy Macharia said field services are very key in the implementation of Teacher Performance Appraisal and Development (TPAD)
In her report to the Education Committee, Macharia said the services are important for Performance Contract implementation and oversight as required by section 11(c) of the TSC Act 2012.
"They play a big role in the timely dispensation of pending discipline cases and the implementation of teaching standards. The Commission requires Sh300 million to finance the programmes and activities at the county and subcounty levels," Macharia said.
TPAD system 2 is a mechanism that allows TSC to evaluate teachers' performance as per the agency's set standards.
The system started officially operating in 2016 with the main aim of improving the performance of teachers and consequently, the academic achievement of pupils.
TPAD measures the quality and effectiveness of teachers using seven teaching standards— professional knowledge and application, time management, innovation and creativity in teaching, learner protection, safety, discipline and teacher conduct, and promotion of co-curricular activities.
