[Kuwait] KD 78 million indemnity for expat teachers
26 Aug 2022

Kuwait’s Civil Service Commission has transferred end of service benefits for expatriate teachers to the relevant departments in the Ministry of Education. 78 million dinars have been allocated for fiscal 2021-2022, Arab Times reports.

An educational source told Al-Rai daily, “the approved budget is an estimate according to the number of expected resignations, and the lists of those covered by compulsory retirement and annual replacement, and that it is subject to increase if necessary.”

The source reportedly said that the CSC has not yet determined the number of suspended jobs in the Ministry of Education for the new fiscal year. However, it is unlikely that they will include educational jobs, as the ratio of Kuwaiti teachers to expatriates currently stands at 27.5 to 72.5 per cent

Of the total 88,348 male and female teachers overall, 63,955 are citizens and 24,393 non-citizens.

The concerned authorities in the Ministry of Education are reportedly working towards completing the procedures for appointing educational cadres based on the specialisations required to meet the needs of schools in preparation for the next school year 2022/2023, according to Aljarida daily. 

Educational sources told the publication that the Ministry of Education has finally announced the specialisations it requires for local and foreign contracts. The number of locally and internationally hired teachers working in public schools is 84,125 teachers in various disciplines.
