As of January 1st, 2018, all teachers who graduated from university up to and including 2012, some 100, and who have not yet been appointed to the graduate teacher grade, will be appointed.
The announcement was made by Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves during his independence speech delivered on 27th October 2017.
Gonsalves said there have been more graduates than the 100, but these are the ones who have not been appointed.
He said those from the graduating years 2013 and onwards, who not yet been appointed to the grade of graduate teachers, will be appointed in annual batches over the next three years until all have been rightly appointed.
“ I am sure the teachers would be very pleased about this, and we have reason therefore to celebrate”.
