Education ministry to recruit auxiliary teachers 

Ministry of Education has  said it has sourced funds to recruit over 3,000 auxiliary teachers to fill existing vacancies in various primary schools across the 34 Education Districts in the country.

Secretary for Education, Chikondano Mussa (C), Deputy Minister of Education (L): To recruit more teachers

The teachers will be recruited from the Initial Primary Teacher Education (IPTE 13) cohort.

A statement from the ministry dated January 31 says the teachers, who will be employed directly by the School Management Committees (SMCs), from all schools that have vacancies, will start work as soon as schools reopen in February this year.

“Recruitment of these teachers is part of the efforts by the Ministry to decongest classes in view of the Covid-19 pandemic,” read the statement in part.

The Ministry is calling upon all IPTE 13 teachers who are interested to take up the posts to report to the council offices of their choice.

The contract period of employment with various SMCs is five months.

“However, subject to availability of funds, the contracts for this employment will be renewed,” further reads the statement.

Since there are limited vacancies in each Council, no school will be allowed to take in teachers more than its allocation and once recruited, transfer to another school will not be allowed throughout the agreed period.

The Ministry is also working at easing teacher shortages in the secondary school sub sector.

Auxiliary teachers is an insult to the profession. Employing professionals as auxiliary in an environment which is not disaster or emergecy is a recipe for massive attrition.

Blantyre City council needs a serious shake up.

Go to their own head office, the buildings and corridors are leaking, go to the market nothing is maintained. Limbe market has gutter that rotted years ago.

TOTAL NEGLIGENCE!!!

The problem is that it at the end of day reflects on the government and each citizen.

We need to all take ownership. This country is ours. No room for the incompetent.

What are they doing with our City Rate.

Line minister, please stamp out this incompetence.

@russie….you have a point. I would like to believe we are heading in that direction. It’s going to take abit of time. We now have degree programmes in primary education….. But we need serious investment in infrastructure (good houses ). These are the things that can attract a graduate to work in very remote areas also. If we want the best…. Let’s try to offer the best also.

IPTE 13 – Teachers – Is it possible for these teachers training centres to offer Diplomas – at least. These teaching certificates are outdated. Why must they only be valid in Malawi yet Malawi is not in a far off planet. Teachers are repeating form 4 only to achieve a grade that could send them to college where they start year 1 which, in essence is year zero as it is a grade that is missing in our secondary schools. Isn’t that funny? You go to college to do first year when it’s actually the grade you were systematically made… Read more »
