TSC Must Eat Humble Pie As Teachers Reject Annual Appraisal

As a direct result of the 60th Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut)  annual delegates conference, held in Mombasa, teachers have now rejected the annual appraisals set by TSC.

The resolution that has since been forwarded to the government, says, “The delegates urged the TSC to remove the infamous TPAD/appraisals contracting as it has subjected teachers to the untold and unprofessional discharge of duty.”

The Teachers Service Commission utilizes the appraisal to train, assign and deploy teachers in various positions.

The employer assesses its heads of the institution on the bases of resource management, maintenance of teaching standards or service delivery.
While addressing the 13th Kenya Primary School Heads Association (Kepsha), TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia said that the commission now has the necessary systems and structure to implement teacher professional development.
She added that the programme would be initialized in 2018 and offered in various models by accredited providers at school level during holidays.
Knut also resolved to include a demand for the Commision to hire all teachers who are trained and qualified for the safety of the profession.

The resolution states that the conference rejects a reintroduction of contract/internship teachers, which was handled and resolved during the 2011 strike.
Knut also approved the rollout of free day secondary education and warned the government to allow teachers enough time to prepare adequately.
