KU Teacher Professional Development (TPD) Programme- Online Application

KU Teacher Professional Development (TPD) Programme- Online Application

Teacher quality is the most important school-related factor in determining student achievement. 

The quality of education is as good as the quality of teachers. Continuing Teacher Professional Development is critical in promoting teacher professionalism by enabling teachers to develop the knowledge skills and expertise required to enhance teaching practice. 

TPD is therefore a career-long obligation for all practicing teachers.

Kenyatta University is a Service Provider Accredited by the Teachers Service Commission to implement the Teacher Professional Development Programme(TPD)


1. No matter how good pre-service or initial training of a teacher is, it does not prepare them to meet the emerging challenges in the ever-changing educational landscape.

2. TPD ensures that practicing teachers’ professional knowledge and skills are up to date with a view to delivering high-quality professional service that meets the expectations of the education.

3. TPD encourages and facilitates the development of communities of practice where teachers can share expertise and experiences with a view to achieving quality education in educational institutions.
