The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has listed a number of teachers missing on Teacher management information (TMIS) in various schools.
According to TSC, the lists which contain the name of the teacher, his/her ID number, age, gender, county, sub-county, school TSC code, and school name have been shared with school heads to act on the data by registering the missing teachers.
TMIS is an important database that TSC uses to manage its teachers. It’s through the TMIS that a teacher can be added to Teacher Professional Appraisal Development (TPAD).
The Commission plans to start face-to-face Teacher Professional Development (TPD) training in April this year according to TSC data.
The training is expected to take ten days and four TPD service providers have agreed on the training venues for teachers. According to TSC, Riara University, Kenyatta University, Kenya Education Management Institute (KEMI) and Mount Kenya University will offer the training.
TSC also said teachers will pay the service providers a capacity-building fee of 6,000 shillings yearly. Though there is a proposal for the state to pay for the TPD program, this has not been approved by Parliament.
School heads have till next week to ensure the missing teachers have been included in the TMIS platform. Failure to comply may lead to disciplinary action. A show cause or warning letter may be issued to teachers and school heads in charge.
