The statement noted that “Following the State Government’s resolution for continued assessment of teachers to ensure better delivery of learning outcomes for pupils, KADSUBEB conducted another competency test for the teachers in December 2021.

“The services of teachers who scored below 40 percent are no longer required and their appointments have been terminated from the public service for their poor performances.

Teachers who scored 75 percent and above were recognized as those who passed the test and qualified for attending courses in leadership and school management.

The qualified teachers will be included in Teacher Professional Development programmes to enhance their capacities to deliver quality teaching to pupils.”
