The vacancies are in the directorate of teacher discipline management, staffing, human resources and development, Internal Auditor, Information Communication and Technology, and 13 deputy directors in teacher management positions.

Apart from the deputy director, teacher Management which calls for applicants to be in grade 5, (Deputy principals and senior masters), the rest only require teachers to be in at least a deputy headteacher position in Grade 3.

The positions advertised will be on a contract basis and the commission has encouraged people living with disability to apply.
