According to a statement issued from the CM House, a cabinet committee presented a report on the recruitment policy 2021 during the meeting, outlining a number of recommendations which the cabinet approved.
37,000 teachers will be recruited over a period of three years in three phases.
The committee recommended that the post of primary school teacher (PST) be upgraded from BS-9 to BS-14 with graduation in second division set as qualification threshold for the post.
While PSTs will remain posted at primary schools through their service, a service structure will be created for their career progression instead of promoting them to the post of JESTs/HSTs/SSTs.
