A new policy passed by the Sindh government makes it simpler for public schools to recruit young women as teachers. The new rule, which went into effect last month, permits schools to recruit B.Ed.-holding instructors of any age. This is a major shift from the former regulation, which stipulated that instructors at government schools must be at least 25 years old.
Young women in Sindh should benefit greatly from the new strategy. As a result, it is hoped that the standard of government school teaching would rise, as younger educators tend to be more energized and invested in their students’ success.
The government of Sindh has declared that it would provide funding for young women who are pursuing a Bachelor of Education degree, in addition to the new policy. Scholarships and stipends are the forms of financial aid that will be provided.
The new policies and financial aid from the Sindh government are very much appreciated. These will probably help girls in Sindh continue their studies.
More recent developments on this front are detailed below.
- Durbeen, a non-profit organization, has a program that helps young women in Karachi find work. As part of the initiative, participants are pushed towards enrolling in the Government Elementary College of Education’s Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) program (GECE). Teachers who complete the program and are willing to work in Durbeen schools will be hired by the government.
- 700 additional teaching opportunities for licensed teachers have been authorized by the Sindh government. Teachers for grades BS-16 will be hired.
These updates demonstrate Sindh’s commitment to hiring more young female teachers in government schools. This will undoubtedly boost Sindh’s education.
