Govt Says It Will Recruit 7 000 Teachers In 2023

Finance and Economic Development Minister Mthuli Ncube has pledged to fund the recruitment of 7 000 teachers in 2023.

The majority of the teachers will be for Early Child Development (ECD), Grade One and Two classes.

In his 2023 national budget presentation in Parliament on Thursday, Ncube said in addition to the recruitment of 7 000 teachers, incentives will be offered to educators to retain their skills. He said:

There is a growing demand for teachers to ensure the delivery of quality education, especially at the infant level.

In 2023, the budget has, therefore, made a provision for the recruitment of an additional 7 000 teachers.

Furthermore, support will be extended to teacher training, with relevant skills for deployment in marginalised areas.

This will be complemented by incentives to attract and retain such skills.

In June, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Evelyn Ndlovu said the country had a shortfall of 25 000 teachers.

She also said the country has an establishment of 136 000 teachers.

Educating the nation is no joke gyz. Education is a vast field and the curriculum can't even cover a third of the needs in society. The country needs a lot of support from donors to invest in this field, it requires a lot of resources . Don't narrow this issue to the employment of teachers only.
