1,039 head teachers from Karachi, Hyderabad receive offer letters


June 2, 2017

Education minister says 1,000 more headmasters to be recruited 

As many as 1,039 headmasters and headmistresses, who have qualified for the jobs through the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) Sukkur, received their offer letters during an orientation session organised by the provincial government’s School Education Department at the Arts Council on Thursday. The candidates belonged to Karachi and Hyderabad. 

Speaking at the ceremony as the chief guest, provincial minister for education and literacy Jam Mehtab Hussain Dahar said the Sindh education department would recruit 1,000 more head teachers.

Unless the teachers, headmasters and headmistresses develop a sense of ownership for their respective schools, the minister said, the current situation of education in Sindh could not be improved.

“We want to bring our province at the top in the country’s education sector. A great responsibility lies upon the shoulders of the newly recruited head teachers.”

Dahar said that provincial education department was counting on the newly appointed head teachers to bring about a positive change in their respective schools. He hoped that they would come up to the expectations and would bring about positive changes in their schools.

Dahar said the education department would ensure the attendance of the teachers, for which 542 monitoring assistants were working across the province and they, at least, twice in a month visited their schools.                          

He assured them if they worked honestly, they would not only get inner satisfaction, but they would also get good reward on the Day of Judgment.

To increase enrolments in schools, he said, the role of the head teachers was vital and it was the need of the hour to bring more children to schools.  

Dahar assured the head teachers of his full cooperation and also warned them if they did not perform their duties honestly and efficiently, strict actions would taken against them.

Speaking on the occasion, education secretary (Schools) Abdul Aziz Uqaili said he expected all the head teachers to make their schools role models for others.

He said an induction training programme for the head teachers would be held, focusing on development in areas of academia, administration, and finance and planning. He told the head teachers that the government would not facilitate them in any transfer or posting.

“The SED has successfully recruited 1,039 head teachers in Sindh and they have been directly hired through a transparent, objective and merit-based process administered by a third party. The merit list of the successful candidates is available on official website [].”

He said that a total of 7,000 candidates applied for the vacancies, out of whom 1,080 cleared the written examination and 1,039 applicants were finally recommended by the evaluation committee after completion of their requisite credentials verification.

Chief programme manager Faisal Ahmed Uqaili said the department had ensured strict adherence to transparency at every stage of the hiring process. He said the successful candidates were also going through a biometric verification with the department.
