Teachers Service Commission (TSC) requires that all practising teachers in all public schools should file and submit their TPAD every term. A number of mistakes have been identified by the commission during filing. Some of the areas where mistakes has been identified are so sensitive. Here are some sensitive areas all teachers should check on for successful submission.
Learners progress record. It has been revealed that some of the teachers do forge learners progress record. The mean and the rubrics they submit is totally difference to the actual tally. This is against the teachers code of conduct and ethics.
Lesson attendance. This pa9rt should be filled by deputy head teacher using the records from the class governors (officials). It has been noticed that most schools are not even having this forms in classes. Lesson attendance records should be updated at the end of every week. Most teachers always accumulate and do it at the end of the term.
Delegating the duty. TPAD is one of the tools that should never be delegated. All teachers should strive to be computer literate in order to handle their TPAD alone. If you have to delegate, then give it a very close supervision to avoid unnecessary errors. You will be responsible for all errors in your TPAD.
Logging in. At the beginning of each term, all teachers are expected to log in to their TPAD account and log ‘on duty’. Most of the teachers do fail to do this only to log on duty towards the end of the term.
Not meeting deadline. Deadline to submit the appraisals are always set by the Teachers Service Commission. Some teachers are always blocked out of the deadline. This is a breach of code of conduct.
TPAD is a tool that may affect your career progression either positively or negatively. A keen attention is therefore needed while handling it. Every teacher should take his/her time to make it successful.
