Kabul (BNA) Ministry of Education will recruit 30,000 female teachers within five year (till the year 1400), to increase the presence of women in the field of education.
Providing access to education to deprived girls, reducing the drop in girls' education and paving the way for women’s economic self-sufficiency by hiring them as teachers are the main goals of the program.
According to BNA report, Noria Nazhat spokesperson for ministry of education in a press conference said, “2674 contracted teachers were recruited last year and 2326 other contracted teachers were recruited during the current year.”
“30,000 contracted teachers will be recruited in rural areas in 34 provinces of the country and in areas where access to a teacher, in particular a female teacher, is limited.” She added.
Nazhat also pointed that "with the implementation of this program, female teachers increase from 33% to 42%, as well as access to education will be provided to girls in rural areas and where the girls are affected by unfair practices".
The terms of employment as a contracted teacher are based on the presence of women presence in rural areas with the highest level of education.
Meanwhile, in order to increase the presence of women in managerial and policy level positions of Ministry of Education, 20 directorate positions under MoE are allocated to women; of these 11 positions of grade two related to Teacher Training Directorates in the provinces have been announced through an open competition, and the rest will be announced in the near future.
On the other hand, the Ministry of Education has prepared the menstrual hygiene guidelines for girls that will be published in the near future, as well as girls' education policy is drafted and will be finalized soon.
The Ministry of Education has made the increase of women’s presence in education field as part of its strategic plan and has always tried to improve women's access to education and women's self-sufficiency.
