Education Ministry to extend contracts of over 2,600 teachers

PETALING JAYA: 2,683 teachers appointed in June 2020 on a contract of service (COS) will have their contracts extended beyond June 9, says the Education Minister.

Speaking at a press conference after the groundbreaking ceremony at SK Putrajaya Presint 8 (3) on Saturday (May 28), Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin said this was confirmed after the ministry had received verification from the Education Services Commission (SPP) on Friday (May 27).

“This is consistent with my previous statement that the Education Ministry will do its best in finding the best solution for teachers appointed under the CoS,” he said, adding that the said teachers' contracts were slated to end on June 9 this year.
