Plateau State Government Employs New Adhoc Teachers.
The Plateau State Government has approved the employment of 4,850 ad hoc teachers as part of efforts to address the acute shortage of teachers in the state.
According to the Executive Chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Prof. Mathew Sule, made the disclosure on Thursday, the move was to address staffing deficit that had affected the quality of education in the state.
Sule said that government would hold an orientation programme for the ad hoc teachers before posting them to their various stations.
He said that 403 teachers, who have completed the Federal Teachers Training Scheme, have also been engaged to bridge the shortage of manpower in public schools.
The SUBEB boss said that the government had accorded top priority to payment of teachers, “despite the financial difficulties in paying other civil servants”. (NAN)
