The Ministry of Education has decided to pull back the 590 jobs which were to be given to non-Kuwaitis starting from July 2015 in compliance with the study undertaken by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) — a practice done every year — keeping in mind the government policy of Kuwaitization, reports Al-Rai daily.
The CSC Chairman Abdul Aziz Al-Zaben in the letter sent to the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education Mariam Al-Wateed requested to hold these jobs which are included in the budget for fiscal 2015/2016, as an introduction for their cancellation from the 2016/2017 budget. He added the ministry had blocked 654 jobs which were destined for non-Kuwaitis during fiscal 2013/2014 upon instructions of the CSC, making the total number of jobs frozen until now to 1,244 jobs for this category.
Meanwhile, Secretary General for the Manpower and Government Restructuring Program (MGRP) Fawzi Al-Majdali has confirmed coordination with the Ministry of Education to address the problems of female nutritionists, whose services were terminated, by appointing them as security officers in public schools, reports Al-Anba daily.
Al-Majdali clarified the schools could absorb about 400 of the nutritionists by assigning two of them in each school. He said the concerned employees will be appointed after completing all procedures in various authorities like the State Audit Bureau and Central Tenders Committee. He revealed the authorities have mandated companies handling the contract to employ them on KD 250 monthly salary; which will be complemented by MGRP to reach almost KD 800, depending on educational attainment.
