Teaching Service Commission Chairperson Stanley M’hango says 42 Zambian Teachers will go to Seychelles to work as expatriate Teachers.
Mr. M’hango explained that the Zambian government was approached by the government of Seychelles to see if it can help them with human resource in the education sector.
In an interview with ZANIS, Mr. M’hango said the teachers were selected after undergoing intensive interviews and that they will be working in Seychelles for the period of 2 years with the possibility of renewing the contract.
He observed that the quality of Zambian teachers is what has attracted Seychelles to solicit for Teachers from Zambia to teach in that country.
Mr. M’hango added that the recognition of teaching as a profession in the country has also added value to the education sector in the country.
He disclosed that in Africa there are only 3 countries which have recognized teaching as a profession and Zambia is one of them.
Mr. M’hango stated that it was easy to enter into an agreement with the government of Seychelles because Zambia has a Teaching Profession council in place.
He further noted that it is for this reason the Teaching Service Commission will always make sure that all teachers conduct themselves in a professional manner so as to attract countries which might want human resource in the education sector.
Mr. M’hango affirmed that the Zambian Government will continue training more Teachers to ensure that the country has enough teachers.
