Education ministry set to employ over 2000 secondary school teachers next year

Thousands of unemployed secondary school teachers will start the New Year on a good note after the Education and Sports ministry revealed openings that will be filled effective January 2023.
The ministry’s spokesperson, Dr Dennis Mugimba, said in a statement yesterday that candidates that successfully went through the interview process in July and received notification letters will be deployed.
The Education and Sports ministry has, however, added that not all successful job applicants will be hired during the January/February 2023 window.
The commission’s secretary, Dr Asuman Lukwago warned those applying for teaching jobs to refrain from using underhand methods to get on the payroll while the General Secretary of the Uganda National Teachers’ Union Mr Filbert Baguma, welcomed the impending recruitment but suggested that the deployment be done judiciously to plug all gaps across the country.
