Malawi government has finally recruited Initial Primary Teacher Education 8 (IPTE8) and Open Distance Learning 3 (ODL3) primary school teachers and deployed to various education districts to fill existing vacancies in public primary schools across the country.
Ministry of Education spokesperson Rebecca Phwitiko said the teachers will start their work on April 1.
In a statement released Tuesday, acting Secretary for Education, Science and Technology, Charles Msosa, said : “The ministry would, therefore, like to request the teachers to go to the nearest District Education Office or Teacher Training College to find out where they have been deployed.
He added that the teachers should then immediately report to the district where they have been posted to fill GP1 Forms and undergo other recruitment procedures.
“It is, therefore, imperative that the exercise of filling forms should be completed by 4th March 2016. Failure by teachers to report to assigned duty stations will be construed that the concerned teachers are no longer interested to be employed by government through the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology,” said Msosa.
He, therefore, advised the District Education Managers to take personal interest in making sure that the process of filling various forms is done with speed and accuracy.
“Teachers are advised to handle issues related to their deployment at district level with their respective District Education Managers. Anybody who comes to headquarters will not be attended to,” he said.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
