Sierra Leone News: Education Ministry needs about 400 workers-PRO

As the government of Sierra Leone prepares for the implementation of the free education project, the public relations officer of the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education attached to the Ministry of Education, Brima Michael Turay has stated that the Ministry needs about 400 workers.
According to Turay, the Ministry was understaffed; this he said has been a long term problem. “We are understaffed even though we are trying to do our best but when a ministry is understaff by close to 400 staffs you can only imagine the kind of challenge that ministry is facing. People are there who are qualified for the job… but when you need probably ten staff and you have only two or three…you can only imagine the challenge”, he added.
He said the government and the Ministry has given the professional and administrative heads of the Ministry the responsibility to come up with a blue print of what they think constitute a free education. With the recommendations therein, the government will be well informed as to what to expect and prepare for going to September when the free education will commence.
“…if the flagship program of this new administration is free and quality education, there is no way in which it will thrive if the school does not have what is due them. I believe that this administration is looking at all of what free education entails…”, Turay said.
