Rwanda Recruits Over 10,000 New Teachers

A total 10,864 teachers for both primary and secondary schools who were hired without degrees in education, has been offered a one-year contract, according to the Minister  of Primary and Secondary Education, Gaspard Twagirayezu. Twagirayezu says that during the provisional one-year employment, the teachers will be required to complete a mandatory pedagogical course, to qualify for a permanent contract. The development follows a recent government decision to scrap teacher entry exams, to address the shortage of teachers in schools.
