The Director of Personnel Administration (DPA) and the Teaching Service Secretariat provide administrative and advisory services (in particular, legal and regulatory services) which enables the TSC to effective discharge its mandate.

The constitutional mandate of the TSC – appointing, promoting, transferring, confirming appointments, and exercising disciplinary control over the officers with the Teaching Service – are core human resource management functions.  In this regard, it is to be noted that authority and responsibility for discharging many aspects of these functions reside in diverse agencies of the Public Service.  In its 2011 – 2015 Strategic Plan, the Commission has placed specific emphasis on strengthening its relationships with relevant agencies and stakeholder groups – through both formal and informal mechanisms – as a key strategy for improving the effectiveness and the efficiency of its operations.
