Many keen to become teachers

GRADUATES are grateful and excited to serve as teachers.

Commenting on social media posts by Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin and his deputy Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon on the special one-off recruitment exercise, netizens welcomed the move and were keen to be trained as educators.

Thanking the ministry, Saidatulfatehah Jamaludin said the initiative gave private and public varsity graduates the chance to “fly (and spread) our wings in the teaching profession”, while Li Fang appealed for qualified “specially-abled” people to be considered.

Describing the recruiment as a good opportunity, Aniza Niza expressed hope that the drive would strengthen the country’s education system and Zie Nnit advised successful applicants to showcase their abilities well when taking on the responsibility of teaching.

The Education Services Commission (SPP) said education graduates – whether from public, private or overseas universities – will be prioritised for this recruitment exercise.

“It will also be expanded to other graduates through various appointment methods in the next phase if there are vacancies that can’t be filled by education graduates.

“We encourage applicants to be well-prepared and to monitor the SPP website and official social media pages to get the latest information on interviews for this initiative,” the commission said in a statement on Tuesday.
