Graduate teachers who are still unemployed after their national service on Monday, 25 November 2019 picketed the Ministry of Education to demand postings.
The teachers said they have been home for two years awaiting their posting but all efforts to press the ministry to employ them have proved futile.
They said they do not understand why their juniors have been posted while they still remain jobless.
The GES, in a statement, recently announced that it has commenced the process of posting teachers who completed the Colleges of Education in 2018.
The Education Service stated that only trainees who have written and passed the teacher licensure examination, and have completed their national service are eligible for employment.
“Candidates who duly applied online will be shortlisted and postings effected by the end of November 2019,” the GES said in its statement.
“We also wish to state that there will be consideration for university graduates with basic education and early childhood certificates who have passed the licensure examination and completed national service as well,” the statement added.
The angry teachers said they have completed all the processes required and, thus, do not understand why they have been ignored.
