No More Hiring Of Expat Teachers From Inside Kuwait

The Ministry of Education will not sign contracts with expatriate teachers and will cover shortages by hiring Kuwaiti graduates, children of Kuwaiti women and bedoons who have valid security IDs, official sources said.

This decision was made in an attempt to prevent a problem that happened last year when the ministry hired teachers living in Kuwait, but later discovered violations in work permits given to them before coming to Kuwait.

The education ministry had then to terminate expat teachers’ contracts at the instructions of the Civil Service Commission and Public Authority for Manpower, the sources said. “One of the terminated contracts belonged to a teacher whose work permit said that he was brought in by a restaurant to work as a chef,” the sources explained.
