Kuwait to hire teachers from Egypt, Tunisia

May 13, 2018

The Kuwaiti Ministry of Education has decided to hire teachers from other countries for certain subjects, the ministry said in an official statement on Saturday.

The ministry made the decision as a very low number of teachers applied to work in public schools for the coming school years (2018-2019), according to the statement.

The ministry will launch an online applications platform to hire female music teachers and male art and craft teachers for Egypt. Other subjects, such as French language and physical education, will be hired from Tunisia.

Educational sources have clarified to Kuwait Times that a ‘B’ GPA is needed for all applicants, plus a minimum of two years of experience for applicants with educational qualifications and three years for others.

The sources also added that selected candidates will be contacted on the phone numbers they fill in the application forms online.
