The Non-government Teachers Registration and Certification Authority (NTRCA) has taken initiative to recruit some 50,000 teachers through the fourth mass notice this year as part of the government's agenda to fill the vacancies on the occasion of the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the golden jubilee of Independence.
Recently, after two years, the organisation has published the final results of the recruitment of about 54,000 teachers in the third public notification.
NTRCA officials have already started the process of making new recruitment notice. Although it is not final how many posts will be notified in the fourth public notification, sources say 50 thousand teachers are likely to be appointed newly.
In this context, NTRCA Secretary ATM Mahbub-ul Karim said, "There is an agenda to fill the vacancies in the Mujib Borsho. Hopefully, we will be able to complete the recruitment this year."
"The fourth public notice may be issued in the next three months. We have already started all the activities in this regard," he added.
According to NTRCA sources, the third public notice was published till June 2018. There were more than 54,000 vacancies. The fourth notification will be issued against the posts that have been vacant for more than two years.
Meanwhile, in the third notification, no application was received for 8,448 posts and 6,777 women quota posts were not filled. Therefore, result of 15,325 posts were left unpublished. These posts will be added in the fourth public notification.
Besides, NTRCA has so far found about 35,000 vacancies. The total vacancies stands at over 50 thousand. So, about fifty thousand vacant posts are likely to be filled in the fourth public notification.
Despite receiving recommendations for recruitment recently, a total of 1,284 could not be appointed due to various complications. NTRCA has recently made arrangements to let them join their recommended work places.
NTRCA sources said that in the last two years, there have been vacancies in many educational institutions for no recruitment. This is disrupting the overall educational activities of the educational institution.
Ashraf Uddin, former chairman (additional secretary) of NTRCA, recently told the media, "We are not going to have any problem in issuing other recruitment notices after publishing the results of the third mass notification. Hopefully, we will be able to publish the fourth mass notification soon."
Earlier, on July 15, the results of the third public notification were released by NTRCA. From that public notification, NTRCA initially recommended 34,610 people in MPO registered organisations and 3,676 people in non-MPO registered organisations.
