MORE THAN 400 primary school teachers will be appointed before the end of the month and more than 200 new teaching posts will be created by yearend, says Minister of Education Ronald Jones.

During a media briefing yesterday in Parliament’s committee room, Jones said 416 appointments would be made, increasing the established posts from 1 392 to 1 631.

In addition, he said 60 super-numerary posts would be incorporated, further increasing this number to 1 691.

Jones said these were teachers who had not been appointed prior to 2007 and they would now be added to the established order.

Jones also said 239 additional posts would be created once the new Public Service (Teachers) Order was passed later in the year. (CA/BGIS)
