KUWAIT CITY, March 4: The Administrative Sector in the Ministry of Education has started to transfer functional degrees allocated for non- Kuwaitis to the budget of the next fiscal year, which will be adopted by the beginning of April, reports Al-Rai daily quoting an educational source.
The source affirmed that contracting with non- Kuwaitis will be limited to the teaching profession and certain specializations determined by the Public Education Sector.
He explained the nomination of Kuwaitis to work in the ministry – whether in the educational or administrative sector – will be in accordance with their functional degrees, affirming that there is no problem in this aspect. He pointed out the problem lies in non-Kuwaitis who will not be approved to occupy social and psychological service jobs or in any other job like before.
He went on to say that the ministry did not receive any letter from the Public Education Sector regarding the announcement to hire teachers locally. He warned against the delayed formation of local and foreign recruitment committees, which is usually done in February every year. He pointed out it will have a negative impact on the next school year considering delay in the arrival of teachers similar to what happened last year.
