KUALA LUMPUR: The Education Service Commission (SPP) is committed to speeding up the recruitment of teachers and Implementation Group Members (AKP) required by schools nationwide, says Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin.

He said this following his meeting with the new SPP chairman, Datuk Seri Dr Mazlan Yusoff, yesterday to discuss several important matters related to the ministry’s efforts to strengthen the education sector, especially on the recruitment of new teachers, among other things.

Through a post on his official Facebook page, the Senior Minister said this commitment is important to enable the operation of schools, especially their teaching and learning sessions, to run smoothly and educate the next generation.“

Among the matters under the focus of the Education Ministry now is to fully complete the special recruitment drive on a one-off basis for 18,702 education service officers. This is important to provide sufficient quality teachers to fill existing vacancies,” he said, according to a Bernama report.

Radzi said that although SPP had completed the special recruitment interview sessions where some candidates had received appointment offers, the ministry wants the recruitment drive to be completed immediately to enable placement before the next school session starts.

Apart from that, he said he had requested that SPP expedite the interview process for candidates under the Contract of Service and interim teachers whose contract would end this year beginning April, involving teachers for English subjects appointed in 2019, Islamic Education teachers as well as those attached to the Sabah and Sarawak state education departments.

Radzi said the ministry and SPP will also look into complaints of oversupply of education graduates under the special recruitment drive for certain subjects including early childhood education as well as expediting AKP recruitment to enable smooth school operations.
