In order to provide quality education to the students, it is of utmost importance that the teachers are recruited on merit basis. This Merit Based Teacher Recruitment was initiated in the Year 2012. For this purpose the Department of Education hired the service of “National Testing Services - NTS” in order to ensure that the whole process is carried out in a transparent and efficient manner. To date the Reform Support Unit has conducted three rounds of merit based recruitment.
The Recruitment Policy of ELD ensured that the teachers are hired where they are needed and are recruited from their locality/UC. Department of Education and the Reform Support Unit has faced great challenges in implementation of this reform but it has undoubtedly helped in better teaching methods, increased enrollment, reducing teacher absenteeism and opening of closed schools.
