The Ministry of Education

The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has a staff complement of over 4,000 teachers, professional, technical, administrative and support staff which constitutes approximately 25% of the total staff complement of the entire Public Service. This Ministry therefore, arguably has the largest staff complement in the Public Service. Invariably, its size lends itself to numerous complexities and challenges. Key among them is those relating to the management of its Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS). The largest group of employees are in the Department of Education where human resource matters relating to teachers and their functioning in the public education system are predominantly addressed. Service delivery, however, in both the Ministry and the Department covers the entire spectrum of Human Resource Management.These areas include, but are not limited to:Employment ManagementPerformance ManagementWork OrganizationHuman and Social Relations ManagementProfessional Development Management; andCompensation ManagementThese Human Resource Management Systems collectively contribute to the efficiency, merit and structural capacity of the Ministry.
