0 2

Education Minister Dr. Susil Premajayantha said yesterday (01) in Parliament that based on the order received after the Supreme Court case regarding the recruitment of Development Officers for the teaching service, they will be recruited as per the Teacher Service Constitution.

The Minister said that development officers are already public servants and in 2019, 22,000 development officers were given the opportunity to train in provincial schools.

He stated that this group can be absorbed into the teaching service in accordance with the Teacher Service Constitution, and accordingly, with the agreement of the development officers’ trade unions, the eligible age for the examination has been extended to 40 years, and applications have been invited for recruitment with the approval of the Public Service Commission.

Minister Premajayantha said that applications have been received from 51,000 graduates who are already in government service.

He said that while the examination was scheduled for March 25, 2023, a group of these officials filed a case in the Supreme Court on March 23, 2023 and obtained an order to suspend the conducting of the examination, so the relevant case is still pending.

The Education Minister said that nine months have passed since the date of the examination, and the Education Ministry wants the case to be finished as soon as possible so as not to hinder the recruitment.
