Around 1,875 Expat Teachers in Kuwait will Be Terminated

At the end of the 2022/2023 academic year, at least 1,875 expat teachers in Kuwait will be terminated under the Kuwaitisation plan, local media reported quoting a Ministry of Education’s source.

Minister of Education, Higher Education and Scientific Research Dr. Hamad Al Adwani directed authorities to go ahead with this plan in order to Kuwaitise educational jobs, Aljarida newspaper reported.

All expat teachers will be phased out in specialisations where 25% or less expatriate teachers are present, and they will be replaced by Kuwaiti teachers.

The replacement plan will be carried out gradually, reaching 100 per cent over several years, with the pace of replacement being closely tied to the rate of hiring Kuwaiti nationals for specialisations with more than 25% expats.

These specialisationswill be Kuwaitised for female teachers: Islamic studies, Arabic, English, social studies, history, geography, psychology and sociology, science, biology, geology, art education, decoration, electricity and mechanics, and computer science.

These specialisations that will be Kuwaitised for male teachers: six majors — Islamic education, history, psychology and sociology, electricity and mechanics and computer science. Teachers for social studies will not be replaced this year to ensure the preparation of graduates in teacher preparation colleges.
