CHENNAI: Qualified teachers have been asked to apply for temporary teaching posts in various schools in the State. The last date has been announced as July 6 till 5 pm. Though the education department has allegedly said that priority will be given to candidates clearing Teachers Eligibility Test (TET), teachers insist on hiring them only for permanent posts. TN School Education Department is currently hiring to fill 13,331 vacant posts at various schools in the State.

According to official data, of the 13,331 posts, the hiring is aimed to fill 3,188 post graduate teachers, 4,989 secondary grade teachers and 5,154 BT assistants across TN.

For the temporary recruitment, qualified teachers will be hired and the department has also confirmed that volunteers of Illam Thedi Kalvi (education at doorstep) scheme can apply for the temporary position.

Speaking to DT Next, a teacher on the condition of anonymity said, “Teachers being appointed temporarily will be forced to face a bleak future in upcoming years. There is no certainty regarding the job and also the salary is relatively lower. Hence it is only wise to appoint the teachers for permanent posts as the State government is already appointing us only on the basis of qualification.”

Additionally, the teacher added, “With several teachers already working in temporary posts across the State with a salary below Rs 7,000 per month and urging to hike and regularisation, TN government should not repeat the same mistake done by the AIADMK regime.”
