PRISAM commends government for teacher recruitment

The Private Schools Owners Association of Malawi (PRISAM) has expressed its appreciation for the government’s recent initiative to recruit teachers nationwide.

According to PRISAM President Ernest Kaonga, the move will play a crucial role in enhancing the quality of education across the country.

“Addressing the critical shortage of teachers is essential for nurturing academic excellence and creating effective teaching and learning environments. I commend the government’s commitment to this endeavour.

“However, I urge teachers from the private sector joining the civil service to do so with genuine intentions. Your focus should be on supporting the government in delivering its mandate of providing quality education services to students not just seeking job security. Teachers need to work hard wherever they are employed, this is a noble profession,” said Kaonga.

In a significant recruitment effort, the Ministry of Education hired and promoted a total of 9,753 secondary school teachers. Among them, 2,681 are newly recruited, while 2,259 have been promoted to TI and TJ grades. Additionally, 3,997 teachers have advanced to senior teacher positions (grade TH), and 316 now lead departments as heads (grade TG). Another 500 teachers hold headteacher positions (grade TG).
