Teachers Who Had Paid For TPD Unsure about being Refunded Their Money Following This Latest Development 

TSC News Today indicate a major shift and in the planned Teacher Professional Development training scheduled to take place this April 2022.

This is after details emerged indicating that the parliament is opposed to the planned burdensome training  for all teachers owing to its high cost, time consuming and cumbersome nature.

This is a reprieve for TSC Employed teachers who have at last had someone to back them up. The Teachers Service Commission has exposed its dictatorial and insensitive nature. A few weeks ago, the TSC Boss had insensitively noted that teachers should either shape in or perish.

The above statement insinuates that the teachers can either adapt to the new changes and demands like the increased use of ICT, policy changes and the then ongoing TSC TPAD training or shape out.

The Teachers Service Commission has demonstrated some form of arrogance when it comes to matters touching on teachers welfare and training.

For instance, it is illegal to force teachers to undergo training and pay for it for a period of 30 years!

This means that a newly Employed TSC teacher will never have time off books!

Given the low salary paid to TSC teachers that does not obviously commensurate their indispensable and irreplaceable roles and responsibilities, teachers need extra time to scavenge for other business opportunities to help them manage their daily bills.

If TSC wants to fully engage teachers, then the Commission should pay teachers handsomely and make the teaching career more lucrative.

TPD Training Modules Aborted. What happen to teachers who had already paid?

All teachers employed by the Teachers service Commission were directed by the TSC CEO to enroll for TPD courses in the selected institutions of higher learning.

Following TSC’s move to implement the refresher courses to be done in modules, a number of Teachers had already registered ready to begin the modules in April.

Nevertheless, members of Parliament led by education committee chairperson Florence Mutua had to intervene to put the exercise to a halt until proper Public participation is carried out involving all Stakeholders.

According to the MPs, the government should fund the training instead of overburdening the already poorly paid teachers.

The move by the legislators has been received with jubilation among teachers across the country.

Reacting to the development on social media platforms, some who had already enrolled for the course took the opportunity to demand for a refund of the money they had already Paid.

Teachers were supposed to pay Ksh 6000 per year to be trained both online and in person during holidays.

The selected Institutions include mount Kenya university, Riara university, Kenyatta university and KICD.

It now remains to be seen whether the institutions will refund teachers who had expressed interest in pursuing the TPD.

In my opinion, they should just be refunded their money as the employer looks for Money to fund the exercise.
