Written test, viva voce must for varsity teacher recruitment: Govt


Dhaka – The government on Wednesday recommended the authorities of the public universities to take written test along with viva voce for the appointment of teachers in a bid to curb irregularities in the recruitment process and to assess the merits of the applicants.The ministry of education published a notification on its website which reads that a letter dated April 13, 2016, undersigned by Deputy Secretary Laila Arjumand Banu, sent to the secretary of University Grants Commission.
Earlier, the applicants only had to sit for a viva voce to be recruited as public university teachers without any police verification.
The circular recommended two things firstly the public universities recruit teachers without police or intelligence verification, having the chances of recruitment of such candidates to be involved in anti-government activities. The recruitment process of teachers and officers can be done through verification of police and intelligence agency before finalising the list.
Secondly, only viva voce is taken to recruit teachers and officers which create the chances of irregularities. So if the written test is taken along with viva voce it will help assess he merits of the applicants and reduce the chances of irregularities.
The ministry has requested the concerned universities to take necessary steps and to inform it to the government. – Staff Reporter
