The Teachers Union of Malawi has expressed hope that the recruitment of 3,600 primary school teachers will ease the pressure that teachers are facing when managing learners in the country.
Charles Kumchenga TUM secretary general was reacting to the deployment of IPTE 12 teachers which has commenced.
“This is what we have been lobbying for and we are happy that one of our grievances has been addressed.”
“We asked the ministry to deploy teachers during the recent celebration of “World teacher’s day” and this is exciting news,” he said.
Kumchenga however asked government to fast track the recruitment process of teachers who have finished training so that they should display their skills.
“Our plea now is that government should not take time to deploy teachers who have completed their studies so that education standards should be improved in Malawi.”
Meanwhile government has asked councils and teachers to cooperate so that all processes are finalized on time.
