He said that teachers should not be compared with other professionals like doctors and lawyers as such comparisons make the teacher small. Kevota’s president, Dorothy Muthoni urged TSC to be more engaged in communicating new policies like TPD.

 

He challenged the stakeholders to help develop ways of sourcing the funds needed to launch the programme. However, the proposals issued include reducing the annual leave allowance for TPD training to reduce the pinch of payment from the monthly salary of teachers.

 

Teachers earn leave allowance every February based on their workgroup. Should the proposal be adopted, the power of teachers in the lowest job group would be lost. 4,000 which is paid annually as leave allowance, however, some TPD service providers say they will spread it. 6,000 TPD fee for teachers to make payment easier.

 

KEMI, one of the institutes, says it accepts nominations for the program along with ksh 500 per month. Service providers also say that from this December the introductory module will be completely online to enable them to provide local level face-to-face training for teachers.
