The Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts wishes to inform those teachers who are currently looking for employment with the Ministry that we are recruiting teachers to fill the vacancies created by exits this year.

This year, 493 teachers exited the Ministry for a number of reasons, including resignation, retirement, death and termination.

 

The Ministry is filling some of these vacancies through redeployment of surplus teachers and the remaining vacant positions will be filled by recruiting new teachers.

Teachers must have teacher training qualifications which must include the practicum component.

All recruitment will be carried out in accordance with the Open Merit Recruitment Selection (OMRS) process.

 

In the current recruitment phase, the Ministry is recruiting teachers for Early Childhood Education, Special/Inclusive Education, Primary and Secondary to fill the current vacant posts and to create a pool of teachers to fill any vacancies that may arise during the year.

For Secondary schools, the Ministry needs teachers in Industrial Arts, Mathematics, Physics, Home Economics, Computing, and PEMAC.

For secondary teachers, there is no immediate vacancy to fill in the other subject areas of Biology, Chemistry, Accounting, Economics, Agriculture, English, Geography, History, Hindi, Vosa vakaviti, and Urdu.

 

The pool will be valid for 12 months to fill positions.

Each year, about 300 – 400 teachers exit the service and the Ministry carries out recruitment to fill these positions.

The Ministry is aware of the fact that each year over 700 pre-service teachers graduate from the various Teacher Training Institutions.

 

However, the Ministry is not able to absorb all these graduates within that year.

The recruitment process includes qualification checks, written job tests and interviews.

Once the applicant meets the Minimum Qualification Requirement (MQR), then he or she is called for a job test.

 

If applicants pass the job tests based on the threshold, then they are contacted for the interviews.

The Ministry requests graduates and teachers to apply online using the Ministry’s online portal.

Applications will close on the 25th of February, 2022.
