To further strengthen its Technical and Vocational Education sub-sector, the Edo State Government will in the coming weeks recruit not less than 204 teachers.

The recruitment is being conducted through the Edo Jobs platform and will serve to fortify technical schools in the state with young, qualified teachers in the various subjects and technical areas.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Skills Development and Jobs, Mrs. Ukinebo Dare said the state Ministry of Education is recruiting the teachers through the Edo Jobs platform to ensure integrity, synergy and transparency in the recruitment process.
