Recruitment of 9,000 teachers in final stages in Balochistan

Education Desk: 

The recruitment process of over 9,000 teaches in Balochistan is in the final stages. The process of recruitment would complete by the end of December, Sher Khan Bazai, the secretary of secondary education Balochistan told Quetta Voice.

The Career Testing Services of Pakistan (CTSP) had conducted tests of around 100,000 male and female candidates across the province during the year 2019. However, the process of recruitment delayed for more than a year.

“We have decided to recruit candidates shortlisted by CTSP”, Mr. Bazai said. The secondary education department has issued orders to over a dozen districts of Balochistan. So far, over 5000 teachers have been issued appointment orders, a well-placed officer said. He requested anonymity since he was not authorized to speak to the media.

“Present government has determined to uphold the banner of merit”, Sardar Yar Muhammad Rind, the Balochistan education minister said. He said the candidates shortlisted by the testing service on merit would be issued appointment orders.

Education officers directed to submit lists of successful candidates 

The education department has also directed the remaining districts to submit lists of shortlisted/successful candidates. As soon as they submit lists, we will issue approvals, Sher Khan Bazai mentioned.

In Balochistan, over 3,200 primary, middle, and high schools are not functional. The major reason for non-functional schools is the lack of teachers. “The department would deploy these teachers in such schools to make them functional”, the education minister Sardar Yar Muhammad Rind stated.

The recruitment process of teachers has also been controversial in Balochistan because of political interference in the past. Nonetheless, the CTSP demonstrated transparency in terms of tests since no solid evidence against irregularities found in the process. “Only a dozen petitions filed against CTSP merit lists in Balochistan High Court (BHC)”, Mr. Bazai said.

Subsequently, the BHC referred all petitions to the complaint redressal committees headed by commissioners. The concerned commissioners thoroughly reviewed all complaints and addressed the grievances of candidates.
