Malawi Government through the Ministry of Education has disclosed that it has recruited and promoted 2,599 secondary school teachers.
Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Chikondano Mussa announced this yesterday in a press statement.
According to Mussa, the categories include Sciences Languages, Humanities, Technical and Special Needs Education, and the number of teachers recruited is over one thousand (1,000) and represents the largest recruitment of secondary school teachers by government in the history.
“The names of successful teachers have already been sent to all the six Education Division offices where candidates can access the results. Successful teachers are therefore requested to immediately report to the Divisions under which they are appearing for deployment details and start working the week beginning today, Monday, 28th March 2022,” said Mussa.
According to Mussa, the recruitment and promotion of teachers form part of ongoing efforts by the Government to improve the quality of education service delivery in the country.
She further assured Malawians that government will continue reducing the current high Student-Teacher ratio to improve the quality of education across all education subsectors.
