Kathmandu, February 19

School Teachers Management Section under the Department of Education has directed regional education directorates to furnish details of vacant posts for lower secondary-level teachers in their respective regions.

Issuing a circular early this week, the DoE asked regional education directorates to submit the details of vacant posts for lower-secondary teachers as well as subject-wise teachers.

Baikuntha Prasad Aryal, director at the DoE, said the department sought the details to recruit permanent teachers in the vacant posts.

Currently, temporary teachers have been hired to make up for the shortage of teachers. He said the department has sought the details as permanent posts have been lying vacant since April 23, 2006.

“As we cannot announce vacancy for permanent posts, we’ve asked the regional directorates to provide the details of vacant posts,” he added.

Currently, the Eighth amendment to the Education Act, which is under discussion in the social committee of the Parliament, has proposed internal competition among temporary teachers for permanent posts.

The bill has stated that the temporary teachers, lien teachers, and other types of teachers working on contract basis since long will be given one last chance to take a written exam for permanent posts.

The Teachers Service Commission is slated announce vacancy for the posts within a year of the endorsement of the new Education Bill to give permanent status to the temporary teachers.

DoE has asked the regional education directorates to provide the details by March 13.
