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

The move follows the directives of the Minister of Education, Higher Education and Scientific Research Dr. Hamad Al Adwani to Kuwaitise educational jobs, Aljarida newspaper reported.

The Kuwaitization plan prepared by the Public Education Sector revealed that the concerned authorities finished preparing the Kuwaitization statistics in specializations in which there are suitable numbers of Kuwaiti teachers. The plan and replacement rates were prepared according to the numbers in each educational zone and in each educational stage separately.

According to the Ministry of Education, the services of all expat teachers will be phased out in specialisations where 25 per cent or less expatriate teachers are present, and they will be replaced by Kuwaiti teachers. For specialisations where more than 25 per cent of expat teachers are present, 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.

With regard to the Kuwaitization of educational supervisory positions (department heads), the majors that could be qualified were determined based on the numbers of Kuwaiti candidates on the waiting lists, and an estimate of the numbers to which the conditions for candidacy were applied in the current academic year. The majors that were excluded have no candidates on waiting lists. It is not expected that there will be sufficient numbers of those who meet the candidacy requirements.
