2,500 new teachers for national schools by July 3 : Education Minister

Minister of Education Susil Premjayantha has announced that 2,500 new teacher appointments for national schools are scheduled for July 3, the President’s Media Division said.

Arrangements have been made to recruit 2,100 teachers for subjects including Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, Technology, and Foreign Languages.

Additionally, 500 teachers will be appointed based on the results of the 2021 English Medium Advanced Diploma Examination, the Minister said.

Premjayantha emphasized that these appointments will significantly reduce the issue of teacher shortages in national schools.

To further address the shortage of English medium teachers, retired English medium teachers are invited to apply for contract-based positions, the Minister said.
