142 contractual posts for primary school teachers to be filled | Goa News


Panaji: The Directorate of Education (DoE) has started to temporarily fill 142 teaching positions in public primary schools. It is now mandatory for teachers to pass the state’s teacher eligibility tests – the first of which took place last month – to qualify for permanent teaching positions.
Anyone aged 45 or under can apply for these 142 positions.
A written test will be organized as part of the selection process, the DoE said.
“The general standard for passing the written exam is 45 out of 100 points. If a sufficient number of candidates in the reserved categories is not available on the basis of the general standard to fill all the positions reserved for them, the candidates belonging to these categories will be selected according to the flexibility standard with 35 points out of 100 to fill the rest of the vacancies reserved for them, ”said the DoE.
The DoE said that if the teacher applying for the positions does not meet one of the specified qualifications, he or she can still apply for the position but must pass the state teacher eligibility test within two. years.
“If such candidates are appointed to the teaching post of a public primary school, they should acquire the qualification of the teacher eligibility test during their two-year probationary period at their own expense,” said the DoE.
Management also announced 72 permanent lower division clerk positions in schools across the state.
According to a response tabled in parliament last year, vacancies for teachers in Goa public schools stand at 19.9%, almost three points above the national average.
