Online Desk |  1 year ago | top

The Government has met with teachers to iron out sticking welfare issues chief among them invigilating allowances during final public examinations which began on Monday for Grade Sevens, while Advanced level learners are set to begin later this week.

Director for Communications and Advocacy in the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education Mr Taungana Ndoro said negotiations will continue after Government tasked the teacher representatives to draw up a position paper on their grievances.

Meanwhile, Zimbabwe National Educator's Union Secretary-General Charles Chinosengwa said they are optimistic that government will address their concerns.

Monday's meeting follows threats by some teachers to boycott invigilating, however, reports show that yesterday's Grade Seven examinations commenced without any notable challenges.
