Panel to hire teachers in 4th phase on Sep 4 & 5
Wait-list candidates to be recruited as asst teachers in Classes XI &XII
Kolkata: The West Bengal Central School Service Commission (WBCSSC) will conduct the 4th phase for recruitment of assistant teachers in Classes XI and XII on September 4 and 5.
The candidates whose name figure in the waiting list has been asked to appear for counselling. A notification in this regard has been published by WBCSSC.
According to the notification, the counselling of waitlisted candidates in the first state level selection test (SLST) for recruitment in government aided and sponsored higher secondary schools will be held during this period. The counselling will be held at WBCSSC office at Acharya Sadan in Salt Lake.
The schedule of counseling will be notified in the commission's website www.westbengalssc.com on Monday evening and the details of vacancies will also be available in the website from Monday evening.
Intimation letter for counseling can be downloaded by the concerned candidates from the commission's website by putting their 14 digit roll number and date of birth from Monday evening.
A senior official of WBCSSC said there were around 600 vacancies of assistant teachers in Classes XI and XII.
The candidates in the Hills will not come under the purview of this counselling.
"After we finish the counseling for XI and XII we will do 4th phase of counseling of teachers for class IX and X," the official added.
It may be mentioned that the state Education department is all set to introduce online procedure for declaration of vacancies and will also do away with the existing system of publication of waiting list. "We have gone through all School Service Commission (SSC) related documents. We are ushering in change in the SSC rules with the aim to have more transparency in the system. The schools would upload their vacancies online and the School Education department would allot teachers accordingly. This system would do away with the role of district inspectors, who presently forward the schools' vacancy lists to the department," a senior official of the state Education department said.
Education minister Partha Chatterjee during the assembly session in July had said that his department has proposed a revision in the rules of SSC and Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) for transparency and fast tracking of teachers' recruitment.
"If things go as per plans, the rules will come into effect before the next SSC examination," the official added.
