Government through Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has released the list of names of the Initial Primary Teacher Education 8 (IPTE8) and Open Distance Learning 3 (ODL3) primary school teachers to be recruited and deployed to education districts to fill existing vacancies in various public primary schools across the country.
This has been disclosed in a Press statement from the Ministry released today made available to FaceofMalawi.
According to the statement, the Ministry is requesting the teachers to go to the nearest District Education Office or Teacher Training College to find out where they have been deployed.
“The teachers should then immediately report to the district where they have been deployed to fill GP1 Form and undergo other recruitment procedures.
“The teachers are informed that they will begin work on 1st April 2016. 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,” reads in part the statement.
In the statement, the Ministry has advised 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,” reads the statement.
