Chakwera’s Tonse Govt to recruit 3,500 auxiliary primary school teachers

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-President Lazarus Chakwera’s Tonse government through Ministry of Education says will soon start the recruitment process of 3,500 auxiliary primary school teachers to be placed in various primary schools across 34 education districts in the country.

The recruitment will be done by Malawi Education Reform Programme (MERP) with financial support from the World Bank.

According to the statement from the Ministry of Education, the teachers to be recruited are those from the Initial Primary Teacher Education (IPTE), cohorts 13 and 14 and that they are expected to start working when schools re-open in October, 2022.

The statement adds that the engagement of these auxiliary teachers will be done directly by School Management Committees (SMCs) and will be on temporary basis.

“The contract period for this engagement is one year academic. Subject to funding opportunities, the contracts may be renewed,” reads part of the statement.

However, the interested candidates in the named cohorts have been requested to call at Local Council Offices of their choice and indicate their availability by September 1,2022.

The announcement comes after the ministry also announced that contracts of current auxiliary teachers will be terminated on July 31,2022 due to unavailability of funds
