IPOH, April 7 — Application for the position of Grade DG41 education service officer (PPP) for 2023 through the Education Service Commission (ESC) is opened from today said Deputy Education Minister Lim Hui Ying.
Deputy Education Minister Lim Hui Ying said graduates who are interested may apply especially for the four critical subjects namely Design and Technology (RBT), Malay Language (BM), English Language (BI) and Islamic Education.
“Whether they are in the education or non-education field, they may still apply if they are interested to become a teacher either on permanent placement or on a contract basis.
“They may submit their application via the website and we hope this recruitment will help overcome the problem of teacher shortage in the country, especially in those subjects,” she told a media conference after officiating at an education exhibition at SJK(C) Yuk Choy, earlier today.
Lim said the advertisement will be posted for two weeks only from today until April 21 and those who have applied before but were unsuccessful may resubmit their application according to the subject options required by the MOE.
The ministry is reported to be facing a teacher shortage of about 4.49 per cent or 19,431 due to compulsory retirement, optional retirement, promotion, study leave, leave without pay, resignation, and death.
In the meantime, she said some 1,000 students attended the exhibition which was organised at the school starting at 9m today with the cooperation of the MOE, Malaysian Conforming Secondary School Principal Council and Association of Malaysian School Management Boards.
Lim added the exhibition was to provide a platform for secondary school students, especially Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia (STPM) school leavers to get information on offers or opportunities provided by the government to further their studies in various fields.
