As part of efforts to equip all schools with competent and qualified teachers, the Kaduna state government yesterday said it has begun recruitment of 25,000 primary school teachers across the state.
The recruitment notice was signed by Kaduna State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Executive Chairman, Nasiru Umar.
SUBEB boss said the agency invites applications from interested and qualified candidates for teaching appointments into public primary schools across the state.
SUBEB specified possession of the Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE) as the minimum qualification. But the basic education agency said it strongly encourages graduates in Education disciplines such as B.Ed. B.A. Ed., B.Sc. (Ed.) and B.Tech. (Ed.) to apply.
He explained that applicants are expected to have a certificate from the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN).
The new teachers’ recruitment came amidst alleged plans by the Governor El Rufai administration to relieve over 20, 000 teachers.
The governor’s decision caused uproar across the state with teachers Union kicking against the governor’s position.
