The Government of Zimbabwe has approved and authorised the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to recruit 5000 Teachers in 2020.
In a statement issued out, the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education says it will be carrying out a registration exercise that will see these teachers being recruited into two batches.
“The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education will be carrying out a registration exercise for prospective teachers who will possibly fill in vacancies for the 2020 financial year, they will be in two batches.
“As such all prospective Teachers should: register only once with their nearest District Education Offices from 18 November 2019 to 23 November 2019, register only with one District Education Office and indicate only two provinces of their preference, produce the following documents when registering: a) original teacher qualification certificates; b) original birth certificate; and c) original identity document.
“For the infant education module, applicants should provide proof of proficiency in the local languages (especially for formerly marginalised indigenous languages) spoken in the district of their preference. Our drop down menu for this should thus indicate districts of preferences (two),” reads the statement.
Already prospective teachers and stakeholders are warned that the Ministry does not employ third party for registration exercises.
This development comes after Teachers’ unions declared a wage deadlock with the government and ordered their members to work two-days a week.
