Minister for Education Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has stated that they are addressing shortages of teachers in the country.
While trying to solve this issue Sayed-Khaiyum says the past practice of Ministry officials touring the country to assess teacher shortages ended a long time ago.
“And then of course once all the information is received by the Ministry and then they will do all the assessment and also they themselves don’t have to go out because we can rely on Principals and head teachers to give us that information and then of course will try and figure out all those positions."
Forms will be made available by the end of this week.
However, the Ministry will place priority on filling secondary school vacancies, mainly in the subject areas of maths, physics, industrial arts and office technologies.
