The Ministry of Education has taken steps to appoint 1,226 graduate teachers to schools in Ampara, Batticaloa and Trincomalee districts in the Eastern Province.
Of this number, 1,097 graduate teachers will work in Tamil medium and 129 in Sinhala medium.
They will serve in their respective schools for a period of ten years, the Ministry of Education said.
The graduates were selected for teaching appointments after an oral interview of candidates who were successful in a competitive examination held by the Examinations Department following a Gazette Notification issued by the Eastern Provincial Public Service Commission a few months ago, sources added.
Appointment letters for the graduate teachers will be handed over on the 26th of this month at the Trincomalee Sinhala Maha Vidyalaya and on the 28th at the Ampara D.S. Senanayake Maha Vidyalaya.
