KUWAIT CITY, Sept 28: The head of the Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (CSC) Eng Ah­mad AlJas­sar is work­ing on a plan to re­place ex­pa­tri­ate teach­ers for the CSC de­ci­sion to suc­ceed, re­ports Al-Anba daily quot­ing reliable sources.

The sources added the plan is to in­crease the num­ber of Kuwaiti teach­ers in sci­en­tific spe­cial­ties in par­tic­u­lar, not less than 75 per­cent of the to­tal num­ber needed by the gov­ern­ment schools.

The same sources said at­tract­ing Kuwaitis into spe­cial­iza­tions which the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion still need is a pri­or­ity of the Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion.

The sources pointed out, the CSC is study­ing the ba­sics to achieve this goal with the rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties such as the univer­sity and the schol­ar­ships man­age­ment of the Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion.

In re­sponse to a ques­tion about the pos­si­bil­ity of im­ple­ment­ing some of the per­cep­tions pre­sented to the CSC such as more fi­nan­cial and moral sup­port for stu­dents of sci­en­tific dis­ci­plines, the sources replied that all the pro­pos­als sub­mit­ted are sub­ject to study.

The sources added it is very likely that some of the pro­pos­als will be ap­proved most im­por­tantly the fi­nan­cial sup­port to pre­pare the stu­dent sci­en­tif­i­cally to join sci­en­tific dis­ci­plines and then pro­vide at­trac­tive environment for work af­ter grad­u­a­tion in the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor.

The sources pointed out in some dis­ci­plines the rate of train­ing teach­ers has reached 100 per cent.

The sources stressed achiev­ing this goal re­quires non-tra­di­tional so­lu­tions pro­posed by Jas­sar to solve the em­ploy­ment cri­sis rel­a­tively by ap­point­ing 5,847 peo­ple in a month, and wait­ing for the an­nounce­ment of an­other batch on Sun­day, which will not be less than 2,500 Kuwaitis who hold the Bach­e­lor’s de­gree in var­i­ous dis­ci­plines, hold­ers of diplo­mas and those who have passed the post­sec­ondary school train­ing cour­ses.

Mean­while, the Min­istry of Health plans to ter­mi­nate the con­tracts of 15 ex­pa­tri­ate ac­coun­tants and other em­ploy­ees for their al­leged in­volve­ment in cor­rup­tion and waste of pub­lic money, re­ports Al-Qabas daily.

The min­istry has also is­sued a de­ci­sion to ter­mi­nate the con­tracts of four ex­pa­tri­ates from var­i­ous sec­tors, one of them a fe­male em­ployee.

Ac­cord­ing to knowl­edge­able min­istry sources Min­is­ter of Health Ja­mal Al-Harbi is cur­rently re-screen­ing vi­tal sus­pi­cious sec­tors. He noted some of those who have been ter­mi­nated were from tech­ni­cal sec­tor and re­port­edly made about KD 120,000 in re­wards and priv­i­leges in just one year.

The sources pointed out the next few days will see the dis­missal of a num­ber of oth­ers.

The min­istry has also de­manded that those who have been dis­missed are asked to bring ‘clear­ance’ cer­tifi­cates from banks, min­istries of ser­vices, elec­tric­ity and hous­ing.

Their res­i­dence will also be can­celled from the date of ter­mi­na­tion un­der the laws of the Min­istry of In­te­rior so that they will not be ap­pointed in any gov­ern­ment or pri­vate sec­tor af­ter ter­mi­na­tion of the con­tract.
