Another history has been made in Anambra State, as five thousand newly recruited Teachers receive appointment papers to assume work in the State Schools System.
Sequel to dearth of Teachers in schools as inherited by the present administration on assumption of office, Mr. Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo immediately approved the recruitment of the five thousand Teachers, following a process which Observers have described as most credible and transparent in recent times.
Out of the 40,120 candidates who responded to the initial advertisement, 13,500 scaled through the first Computer Based Test which had 60 as the cut off mark.
Later, in search of Core Subjects, a supplementary list took the cutoff down to 55, thereby adding additional 2000 candidates to the number scheduled for the last CBT. The last CBT was scheduled in 6 centres. The cutoff point was 55. The successful candidates (8120)were scheduled for Oral and Written Interview.
Success was determined by adding the last CBT scores and the Oral/Written interview scores and dividing by simple average. The cutoff was set at 60.
The Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh said that Mr. Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo will on Friday, 2nd December 2022, address the newly recruited Teachers in a ceremony designed by the Ministry of Education, to get the new Teachers in tune with what Gov. Soludo’s administration expects of them, in the drive to provide quality and value based Education for Anambra children.
The event is scheduled to take place at the International Conference Center Awka. The invitees are expected to be seated before 9am.
Meanwhile, the people of Anambra State have continued to eulogize Governor Chukwuma Soludo, Commissioner Ngozi Chuma-Udeh and the Education team, for bringing transparency and credibility to bear in teachers’ recruitment process.
