Kindergartens need the highest number, followed by primary- and secondary-level English classes.

For instance, Long Thanh My Kindergarten in District 9 and Huong Duong Kindergarten in Tan Phu District each need 16 new teachers.

Phuoc Thanh Kindergarten in Cu Chi District needs 15.

Other districts requiring large numbers of teachers are Binh Tan, Binh Chanh, Go Vap, Cu Chi, Thu Duc, Hoc Mon, 12, and Tan Phu, where the large number of migrants has increased the number of students.

The city Department of Education and Training said the number of students in the city is set to increase by 59,082, mostly at kindergarten and primary levels and in those districts.

It said 1,497 more classrooms are being built.

Recently the city People’s Council greenlighted the recruitment of kindergarten teachers who have temporary residency registration known as KT3. Until last year only people with permanent residency – ho khau in Vietnamese – could apply for a kindergarten teacher’s job.

Salary hikes have also been approved for kindergarten teachers.

Le Hoai Nam, the department’s deputy head, said the department would come up with polices to attract teachers to primary schools.

Nguyen Huynh Long, head of the department’s personnel division, said 1,400 applications have been received for high school teachers’ jobs while the need is for only 420.

But most applications are for teaching maths, physics and chemistry with only a few applying to music, English, and fine arts, he said.

Nguyen Quang Vinh, head of the department’s primary education division, said a shortage of teachers, especially English teachers, has caused a failure to meet the Ministry of Education and Training’s standards and difficulties in implementing the new overall training programme.

Educational departments in districts 8 and Thu Duc also need to employ staff such as librarians and cashiers.
