By Chaimaa Zahaar
Rabat - Through the Regional Academies of Education and Training (AREF), recently opened nearly 24,000 new positions. The ministry hopes to recruit candidates with BA degrees in either primary or secondary education, to avoid overloaded classrooms.
The recruitment process for teachers opened between June 5 and 7, and interviews are set to take place on June 29 and 30. All of the new positions will follow a contract-based system.
In addition to recruiting teachers for the upcoming academic year, the ministry will also recruit 8,000 administrative and technical staff members in two waves.
