In a move to meet the shortage of teachers in city government schools, the UT Education Department has planned to recruit 219 Trained Graduate Teachers (TGT) under the Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA).
Also, the department has shortlisted 1,200 candidates for selection to 653 posts of Junior Basic Teachers (JBT). The recruitment of these teachers will be completed by May 15 while that of TGTs will conclude in July.
“We have completed the scrutiny of all the 1,200 candidates shortlisted on the basis of merit. We hope to complete the process ahead of May 15,” said a department official.
In a first, all these recruitments are being made online this year. Conducting the recruitments after a gap of about four years, the department had invited online applications from eligible candidates for posts of JBTs last month.
All the recruitments will be made on contractual basis. The term of contract will end on March 31, 2013.
No interviews will be conducted for selection of teachers and only those who have qualified the Teachers’ Eligibility Test (TET) will be eligible to apply for the posts.
A week after the closing date of applications, the list of applicants will be uploaded online. The list will indicate the particulars entered by the candidates and the score assigned as per selection criteria.
The candidates, on merit, will then report for verification of original documents within a specified time. Further, candidate-wise schedule for checking of original documents will be uploaded on website: http://recruitment.cdacmohali.in .
At present, only 480 SSA teachers are working in city government schools.
