THE Teaching Service Commission (TSC) is in the process of establishing a database called the Teacher Information Base to monitor teachers, chairman Baran Sori says.
He said after 41 years of not having a proper system, the commission decided to have an accurate base so that as an employer, it could monitor its employees and reduce such issues as leave fares.
He said this would help the commission monitor teachers’ careers.
“As teachers employer, we must have accurate information such as when they were engaged, how many years of teaching they had, their, the movement from one province to another, their qualifications, the level of positions that they have and other aspects.”
Sori said other programmes had information but were quite messy and needed a proper data base system.
He said the programme started last year, with an officer going for training at DATEC to learn about the system and would be in charge.
“What we will do is that the payroll system that is currently in effect is only focusing on pay but the person in charge will also use this system to extract human resource information out from there so we could have a clear data for teachers,” Sori said.
“It will take us a while but we hope that by that time the system is up and running it should be able to monitor and avoid such things as false claims from teachers regarding leave fares.”
Sori said they had received good support from various government stakeholders to establish the teacher information system.
