Unemployed P1, DTE and BED Holders Will Be Employed: Experts
Education experts have given nuggets oh hope to the unemployed P1, diploma in teacher education and bachelor in education holders and those currently pursuing the courses that they will all be employed even if the proposals by TSC are accepted and implemented.
Moat teachers in these categories are worried about the move by the government to adopt BSC/BA + PGDE and Diploma in Primary Teacher Education.
