Looking for Information on Govt. Teacher Jobs in J&K.Know the complete details of the Upcoming JKSSB Teacher Recruitment 2020   

IF you are looking for Govt Jobs in J&K and particularly Teaching Jobs, then we have some good news for you. In the First, week of March 2020, the Indian Government has approved the creation of 50,000 Government Jobs for the people of Jammu and Kashmir. These 50,000 Jobs will be filled up by the Recruitment agencies ie JKSSB and JKPSC in 2020-21. The Education Department of J&K is also gearing for Major Recruitment Drive in 2020-21 and all the pending posts in the Education Department will soon be referred to JKSSB and JKPSC. 
So, Don't waste any time and start preparing for Upcoming JKSSB Teacher Recruitment 2020.

The year 2013 has been one of the Golden years in terms of Job creation, as JKSSB single-handedly created close to 19000 Government Jobs, out of which 5000 are Teacher posts. After that, there was no major Teacher Recruitment in the 4 years. Then in 2017, JKSSB has announced the Teacher Recruitment for 2100+  Posts, but that was only for 14 Districts and Zero vacancies for remaining 8 Districts

Now, JKSSB is back, with another opportunity for teacher aspirants and particularly those who missed Or Not selected for the Teacher Recruitment in 2013 and 2018. It is expected that JKSSB will announce 3000 Teacher Posts in the Upcoming JKSSB Recruitment 2020 . 

JKSSB Teacher Exam of 2013 witnessed the Highest ever attendance, as more than 2 Lakh candidates have appeared in the Exam in 2013. The reason for such a bigger appearance in JKSSB Teacher Exam is the Eligibility criteria that was only 12th Pass, now the present government has amended the Rules and Fixed Graduation as minimum criteria to apply for teaching jobs. With this change in Qualification criteria, the competition will be lessened, as Only Graduates can become teachers in J&K. 

Now, everyone here would like to know when this JKSSB Teacher Recruitment will be announced, What is the Syllabus and Pattern for Exam, and many other Questions. In this post, we will discuss each and every aspect and if you still have doubts, you can ask your questions, in the comments section.

In fact, we have made this JKSSB Recruitment Website, especially for those seeking Government Jobs, advertised by JKSSB.

J&K Civil Secretariat Recruitment 2020

JKSSB Teacher Recruitment 2020: 3000 Vacancies

It is not very often, that you will see Teacher posts advertised by JKSSB and School Education Department. You already know that Previous two Teacher Notifications were announced in 2013 and 2017. You can see the gap, as teacher posts were announced after a gap of 4 years.

And this is the reason, whenever Teacher Recruitment is announced, there is a craze for it, particularly among the women Job seekers.  

In 2017, the School Education Department of J&K has categorized the Teacher posts in three categories as mentioned below

1) General Teachers
2) Science / Maths Teachers
3) Urdu Teachers

However, candidates having requisite Qualifications can apply for more than one category of these teacher posts.  

In 2020, JKSSB is expected to advertise around 3000 Teacher posts, as there is a huge shortage of General Teachers, Science/Maths teachers in Govt. Schools of J&K. So, the coming year, you will a lot of vacancies in the Education Department of J&K. 

Discrimination in Previous Teacher Recruitment

The JKSSB Teacher Recruitment of 2018 has some good Number of vacancies particularly for Kashmir Division and nothing for Jammu and Ladakh Divisions. 

Here is the Percentage-wise allocation to Teacher Posts to three Divisions of J&K

1) 86% (1864 Posts) for Kashmir Division
2) 14% (290 Posts) for Jammu Division  
3) 0% (Zero Post) for Ladakh Division

Note: There are Zero vacancies for these 8 Districts of Jammu and Ladakh Divisions (Jammu, Kathua, Ramban, Doda, Poonch, Kishtwar, Leh and Kargil

JKSSB and School Education department of J&K were criticized for this recruitment, as they left the Jammu Region, with minimum vacancies only.  

When JKSSB Teacher Recruitment 2020 will be announced?

You all know that on 5th August 2019, J&K was bifurcated and Article 370 was scrapped. After that, there was Job Notification announced by JKSSB and JKPSC as they have No Criteria to define "Who is the Resident of J&K" OR From whom, they can invite the applications. 

So, Domicile Law is the only reason for the delay in the advertisement of Fresh posts. It is being informed by the Ministry of Home Affairs, that soon, there will be a Domicile Law to define the residents of J&K and only after that, we can expect JKSSB Teacher Notification 2020

To help applicants in Finding the suitable study material, we have done an exhaustive research, to Find Out which books, Toppers have studied in the Previous JKSSB Exams. We find, that most of the Qualifiers, have studied the Section-wise Books for the Exam, rather than a single Book.

For J&K' GK, students have read R Gupta's Book on J&K's General Knowledge.

Here is the Clipping of SRO-508 release by the Education Department on 14th Dec, 2017

Why Government has Revised the Criteria for Teachers?

This is gonna be a bad news for all those, looking for Teacher Jobs after 10+2, Now, gone are the Days, when you can dream of becoming a teacher after 10+2.

It is not a hidden fact that from past few years, there has been an outburst amongst people regarding the degrading quality of education, especially in government schools. According to UNESCO’s 2013-14 “Global Monitoring Report on Education for all”, it came out that India is still one of the 21 countries that has less than half of the children who know basics of individual subjects. Given this scenario, it is the need of the hour to check our implementation strategies and come out with a new version of recruiting teachers who impart knowledge and educate the young minds.

Taking this forward, the J&K Govt. has decided to amend the rules for recruiting the teachers. This is also parallel to the decision made by other states in terms of making the recruitment of teachers more stringent. An SRO would be issued by the J&K Govt. shortly and likewise around 3000 posts of teachers will be filled by the recruiting agency ie JKSSB.

This change comes after an elaborate exercise conducted by the School Education Department on the directions given by the Minister in charge of Naeem Akhtar.

Moreover, the state Government has a few more reasons to make this change.

1) The current eligibility qualification of 10+2 education is not sufficient and it needs to be upgraded. Also, another contributing factor is that the current recruited teachers are not able to meet up to the expectation of the students and henceforth the Govt. wants to initiate steps to fill in this gap.

Moreover, in the recently announced JKBOSE 12th class results, the performance of Government schools remains poor. Even.

In Feb, 2016, when Deputy Commissioner of Udhampur, inspected the Government schools in Udhampur, to find out that the Biology Teacher, doesn't know the Parts of Digestive system and Science teacher have no idea of What is a Fossil fuel. After that dismal performance of teachers, he ordered Education audit of schools

Now, from this, you can judge, the level of teachers in J&K.

2) Adding on to this, another keen observation is that the government teachers do not extend their existing knowledge by attending seminars, conferences or orientation programs which keep the teachers updated.

3) To get, promotions, the teachers with Qualification of 10+2, obtain their degrees from universities which are unrecognized even though the criteria for promoting teachers to the Master's Grade is at least graduation with BEd. Moreover, when these teachers, who obtained degrees from Un-recognized Universities, are denied promotions, they enter into litigation with the government.

So, all these factors have urged the Govt. to amend the current selection procedures for recruiting teachers. So from now on, graduation would be a basic qualification for roping in teachers which would also eventually help in the promotion of teachers to Master’s Grade.

 Another important change which will come is that under the amendment rules, 30% of the total posts will be reserved for subjects like Mathematics and Science. This is because of the shortage of the teachers teaching these subjects. According to the National Assessment Survey, most of the students scored only between 0-50% in these two subjects.

All these changes are all steps to provide quality education and bring the students in J&K at par with the students belonging to other states.  This will prove to be an important and big step towards changing the education scenario in the state.

Now, you know why the Criteria for JKSSB Teacher Jobs is changed. Now, the next thing, you would like to know, that when JKSSB will announce the Recruitment Notification for teachers.
