No fewer than 32,000 people have applied for about 1000 existing teaching jobs available at the Ondo State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM).

The Head of the Press and Public Relations Unit of the State Teaching Service Commission, Goodluck Akinyomi, who disclosed this in Akure, said the commission will conduct an online examination for those seeking appointments in the state.

Akinyomi said the online examination became necessary following the number of applicants seeking appointments to teach in the public secondary schools in the state.

Akinyomi, in a statement, said the ten-minute online recruitment examination would commence on Thursday between the hours of nine o’clock in the morning and nine o’clock on Friday morning.

Akinyomi said the weeding examination would involve all applicants, and in the spirit of inclusiveness, all physically challenged applicants are also to take the online recruitment examination.

He said the examination would be conducted on the same date and time, except for the applicants who are visually impaired, who would take theirs at a later date.

The Administrative Secretary of the commission, Mrs Morayo Bayo-Philip, said the appointment of teachers into the public secondary schools of the state would be based on merit, as no one would be employed through the ‘back door’.

Bayo-Philip said the commission would not compromise the academic standard of state secondary education, and the education of our children is paramount.

Bayo-Philip noted that the state Teaching Service Commission has not relented in its efforts to ensure that highly qualified applicants with proven integrity are engaged in the teaching service of the state. The state expected the applicants to score at least seventy per cent in the examination.

The Administrative Secretary requested the applicants log on to the portal using their individual user name and password with which they had registered for the online recruitment examination, which would take ten minutes only.
