Trainee teachers to move from stipend to salary from next year

Teachers who are in training and usually get a stipend will receive salaries from 2023, Minister of Education Priya Manickchand disclosed on Friday.
The Minister, speaking at the opening of a Teacher’s Training Centre in Region Three, said the Ministry has considered ways that teachers can be better compensated for their work.
“From January next year, every teacher even as you train, you will be receiving a salary as an in service teacher,” she stated.
Currently, teachers on training receive a stipend. However, Manickchand said because they are in the classroom, it has been decided that they will receive salaries instead.
The minister noted that teaching is an important profession and should be treated as such. She further said the government is actively planning to ensure that teachers get the necessary support to conduct their duties.
