Gov­ern­ment and the school needs a teacher for math­e­mat­ics and the Sci­ence teacher but that is what not avail­able: PM

Bhutan Times - - Home - SONAM PEN­JOR

After the Royal Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (RCSC) an­nounced the in­take vacancy for the Paro and Samtse B. Ed grad­u­ate, most of the B. Ed grad­u­ates were dis­ap­pointed. Of the to­tal 417 B.Ed grad­u­ate, there are only 182 va­can­cies that were an­nounced by the RCSC.

Dur­ing the 14th meet the press ses­sion Fri­day, , Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay said that we are very dis­ap­pointed, we are very con­cern that ev­ery child we want to en­sure that they are em­ployed after spend­ing so many years but the gov­ern­ment jobs is not only the op­tion. So far ev­ery B. Ed grad­u­ate has un­der­stood that when they grad­u­ate they will get the gov­ern­ment job au­to­mat­i­cally de­spite of hav­ing more than 8500 teacher in the coun­try in­clud­ing the con­tract teach­ers for the 1,71,000 stu­dents. How­ever, it was also a fail­ure on the part of the gov­ern­ment to mis­lead the grad­u­ates.

Ly­onch­hen said that the teacher-stu­dent ra­tio comes to 1:21. How can the gov­ern­ment em­ploy that many more teach­ers? The gov­ern­ment and the school needs a teacher for math­e­mat­ics and the Sci­ence teacher but that is what not avail­able.

This year batch of B. Ed grad­u­ates, I met them and I felt the pain, I fell dis­ap­point but it is also my re­spon­si­bil­ity to be hon­est them, said the Ly­onch­hen.

“I don’t want to mis­lead them, I have told them no­body has guar­an­teed in terms of job after you have grad­u­ated. No­body has guar­an­teed a job in the civil ser­vice. So, to as­sume that you are go­ing to get job in the civil ser­vice is wrong”, said the Ly­onch­hen.

Ly­onch­hen added that could the gov­ern­ment has done some­thing three years ago that while re­cruit­ing gov­ern­ment should have made it clear to them that gov­ern­ment would give ed­u­ca­tion till de­gree but not job guar­an­tee.

Ly­onch­hen fur­ther said that this is some­thing that gov­ern­ment could have done three years ago. But on their part, to say that def­i­nitely gov­ern­ment will em­ploy them would be wrong be­cause they knew the cir­cum­stances.

All col­lege stu­dents must pre­pare them­selves, go­ing to be­come ex­tremely chal­leng­ing now to em­ploy grad­u­ates in the civil ser­vice. on the gov­ern­ment side, we will see where we can cre­ate jobs and we have prom­ise to cre­ate jobs, its tak­ing time, we need our stu­dents and par­ents also to co­op­er­ate to look for jobs. We have to cre­ate the en­vi­ron­ment. So that it be­comes easy for our stu­dents and grad­u­ates to work in the pri­vate sec­tor. Again to get self em­ployed, we had also opened up Business Op­por­tu­nity and In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre (BOIC), said the Ly­onch­hen.

Min­is­ter for Agri­cul­ture Ly­onpo Yeshey Dorji said that stu­dents of Col­lege of Nat­u­ral Re­sources (CNR) had the sim­i­lar no­tion that they will also em­ploy in the civil ser­vice after the grad­u­a­tion. But I was in­form­ing to the CNR that they had al­ready an­nounced to the stu­dents when they are tak­ing in, like those who are grad­u­ated this year, they started their three years ago, so they have al­ready in­formed that gov­ern­ment job won’t be se­cured, you have to go through the com­pe­ti­tion.

He also added that, this year more than 40 grad­u­ates were not ab­sorbed by the gov­ern­ment.

In adding that Min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion, Ly­onpo Mingbo Drukpa said that RCSC had used a for­mula to cal­cu­late who are in the sys­tem and only from that RCSC had an­nounced the va­can­cies.
