Umno Youth Urge Ministry To Give Jobs To UNIRAZAK Education Graduates

KOTA KINABALU: The Umno Youth movement has called on the Education Ministry to give 152 Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNIRAZAK) education graduates in the state a chance to teach in Sabah’s rural areas.

According to Umno Youth exco member Jamawi Jaafar, he was approached by several graduates from the institution and told of their difficulty in obtaining employment.

He said most of them were graduates from 2009 until this year but had yet to receive any offer to teach in schools in the state.

“With their knowledge in education, it would be a waste if we don’t utilise it for children in Sabah,” he told reporters here today.

He said after a recent meeting with the Education Minister’s private secretary and special officer (teacher division) in Putrajaya, he was informed that the Education Ministry only took in and placed teachers from Teacher Training Institutes and public institutions of higher learning.

In this context, Jamawi, who is also Umno Youth Tenom division chief, urged for education graduates from private institutions of higher learning including UNIRAZAK to be given places to teach in schools, especially rural areas, to cater to the existing shortage.
