Besides compiling documents, three different commissions gather to deliberate on who is eligible.
According to a communiqueacute from the Ministry of Basic Education, some 2,970 PTA teachers, who teach in government schools, paid by the Parents Teachers Association, PTA, will be recruited as contract workers into the Public Service for the year, 2015. While interested candidates are urged to submit their documents at the Sub-divisional Inspectorate of Basic Education, there is need for such candidates to know that this is not a prerequisite for them to be integrated into the government teachers’ scheme.

Candidates also need to attach to their application two identical passport-sized photos, certified copy of birth certificate, two certified copies of Teacher’s Grade One Certificate, a photocopy of professional diploma, a certified copy of National Identity card and a Certificate of Non-conviction, amongst others.
Candidates are also required to present a yearly attestation of effective service signed by the head teacher of the school they are currently working, a receipt attesting payment of salary for the past three months as well as a certified copy of marriage certificate for those who are married. PTA teachers wishing to be recruited into the public service are also required to write an undertaking to serve in the same duty post for five years.
When these documents are deposited at the Sub-divisional Delegation of Basic Education, a source at the Centre Regional Delegation of Basic Education says, the Minister of Basic Education creates a committee with the Sub-divisional Officer of the area as the chairperson. The committee is charged with putting files in an orderly manner and later pass on to the regional committee which classifies them according to the various regions of the country.

Thereafter, a list of those who have been retained and recruited as teachers into the public service is published.
