Education Desk :

The Balochistan education department has approved appointments of teachers shortlisted by the Career Testing Services of Pakistan (CTSP) in 4 districts of the province. “Appointments of teaching staff approved for Jhal Magsi, Awaran, and two other districts”, Sher Khan Bazai, the secretary of education informed. Gradually, the education department would issue appointment orders to over 9,000 teachers in different categories to overcome the shortage of teachers, he revealed.

Mr. Bazai said appointment orders of remaining districts would be issued after the recommendations of the district recruitment committees. “We will issue orders once we get final lists from districts”, the secretary of education mentioned.

20 districts submitted lists

Hitherto, around 20 districts have submitted their lists of shortlisted teachers with the office of the secretary of secondary education office. The CTSP shortlisted candidates have been protesting for the delay in the issuance of their orders for the last few weeks outside Quetta Press Club.

The shortlisted candidates had appeared in the tests and interviews conducted by the CTSP for various categories of teachers across Balochistan during the year 2019. Around 100,000 male and female candidates participated in the tests and interview process. However, the education department failed to issue appointment orders to the shortlisted candidates timely.

“We are waiting for appointment orders for last more than one year”, Muhammad Salman, a shortlisted candidate told Quetta Voice. The successful candidates have staged protest demonstrations and established a protest camp to mount pressure on the department to issue them orders.

However, Mr. Bazai stated that scrutiny on the part of DRCs and CRCs caused a delay in appointments of the teachers. The former secretaries of education formed district recruitment committees and complaint redressal committees to ensure transparency in the appointment process and address the grievances of candidates.
