Zimbabwean Teachers Begin Exams for Rwandan Teaching Positions

About 500 Zimbabwean teachers have begun virtual exams in order to identify competent teachers to work as teachers in Rwanda.

According to the Zimbabwe Mail, a delegation of eight officials from Rwanda led by the permanent secretary in Rwanda’s Ministry of Education Mr. Charles Karakye have arrived in Zimbabwe for the recruitment exercise.

After the completion of the virtual exam, teachers who have passed will undergo an oral interview.

The successful candidates are expected to travel to Rwanda in September after undergoing pre-departure training by a team of experts from Zimbabwe and the Embassy of Rwanda to ensure adequate orientation and requisite information is imparted to the Zimbabwean nationals before their deployment.

Rwanda is recruiting competent education personnel to be employed in Rwanda in four categories: basic education, basic TVET (technical and vocational education and training), polytechnic and universities.

On May 4, 2022, Rwanda's Minister of Education and Zimbabwe's Minister of Labour, Public Service signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in order to exchange personnel expertise in the field of education, science and medicine among others.
