KUWAIT CITY, May 19: The Ministry of Education has granted a one-week grace period to employees who have not uploaded academic certificates higher than high school on its website, reports Al-Jarida daily. Senior educational sources stated that 18,000 employees already uploaded their academic qualifications on the ministry’s website and through Sahel application. However, 19,000 employees have not yet uploaded their qualifications; so the sources stressed that those who fail to upload their certificates during this grace period will face legal problems, as the ministry warned in its latest announcement. Sources added the ministry may also withhold the salaries of these employees to compel them to submit documents related to their academic qualifications obtained after high school. It should be noted that the ministry is coordinating with the Ministry of Higher Education to ensure the authenticity of these certificates.

Meanwhile, Hessa Al-Mutawa, the acting Assistant Undersecretary for Public Education Affairsat the Ministry of Education, has announced that teachers and administrative staff will be allowed to remain in schools after official working hours if there is a genuine need for them to do so.
This decision is in response to the comments of Kuwait Teachers Society regarding the circular prohibiting the presence of academic and administrative staff after official working hours, which had a negative impact on the workflow in schools. In light of this, Chairman of the society Hamad Al-Houlimhas commended the cooperation of Al-Mutawa and her understanding and quick response to their comments. Al-Mutawa sent a letter dated May 14, 2024 to school administrations, permitting the presence of staff in schools after official working hours based on the actual work requirements, and after coordination and approval. He clarified that tasks such as exams and grading papers are considered part of the work requirements and necessitate the presence of educational and administrative staff in schools after official working hours.
