Plateau State Government has recruited about 834 teachers for its Primary and Secondary Schools.
Chairman of the State Teachers’ Service Commission Vonjen Lar, who said this on Tuesday, noted that the move was part of Governor Simon Lalong’s effort to reduce the rate of unemployment.
Lar said the development was meant to also improve the quality of education in the state.
“The state government had in August last year announced to the public to get a form with our commission for the recruitment, which they did and interviews were conducted in the three zonal districts of the state,” he said.
“The list of the successful candidates will be pasted on the board of the Ministry of Education for the public, especially the applicants to check their names.
“A total of 834 persons have been recruited by the commission, which has the mandate to recruit, promote and transfer teachers in the state.”
