KUWAIT: The Civil Services Commission (CSC) has succeeded in nominating 10,482 citizens to work in various government bodies within 86 days – from June 30 till Sept 24, 2020 – CSC Director Ahmad Al-Jassar told Al-Rai Arabic daily. Jassar described the nominations as an achievement for both CSC and government bodies. “Nominees included 6,465 holders of university degrees, 2,283 with diplomas, 1,136 with high school certificates, 353 with intermediate school certificates or lower, 175 with intermediate school certificates or higher, 68 with master’s degrees and two with PhDs,” Jassar explained.
Jassar considered nominating over 10,000 citizens in less than three months as an achievement for CSC in view of the extraordinary circumstances Kuwait is going through. He stressed that CSC is always keen on nominating those registered in its employment system through government bodies’ integrated systems and according to those bodies’ needs.
Meanwhile, Al-Qabas daily reported yesterday quoting education ministry sources that the CSC sent a request to ministry officials asking for details of 1,961 expatriate teachers in public schools, who could be replaced with Kuwaiti teachers after the end of the 2020/2021 in July next year. There are no guarantees that the teachers, who teach Islamic studies, history, geography, psychology and philosophy, could lose their jobs, “but the CSC requires their information to study the possibility of replacing them with Kuwaiti teachers as part of the public sector jobs’ Kuwaitization process,” the report reads.
