CTU queries education administration recruitments Featured

The Ceylon Teachers Union claims various shortcomings in the process to make recruitments to the education administration service.

Applications called, a competitive examination held on July 01 under open, limited and senior categories, and graduates recruited under the first category, but still 16 vacancies remain, says CTU secretary Joseph Stalin.

Only 306 were recruited under limited category, although 515 were to be recruited, and under senior category, only 112 out of 118 positions filled.

The recruited graduates are due to complete their training, while those recruited under the limited category are due to start their training, but no final interviews held for the senior category, according to him.

The normal procedure is to fill vacancies every six months, but this time it has not been done properly for one whole year, he says.

Also, persons with political backing serve in acting capacity in the vacant positions, creating  more problems.

The education secretary and the Public Services Commission have been informed of this, but nothing has been done yet, says Stalin.
