Education Ministry seeks to reduce “hand-delivered” mails to HR Dept

…teachers can now submit documents electronically

The Education Ministry on Sunday announced that all documents which would normally be “hand-delivered” to the Human Resources Department of the Ministry at 21 Brickdam, Georgetown, pertaining to upgrade in status, transfer, secondment, etc should be emailed to [email protected].
According to the Education Ministry, as soon as the email is sent, an automatic receipt will be sent to the sender’s email to acknowledge receipt of the mail. To process emails faster, the subject of the email should include the region the teacher is from, the nature of the matter and the teacher’s name.
In its notice on Sunday, the Education Ministry said that each document sent will be processed in three working days.
“If more time is required, then the Human Resources Department will communicate with the concerned party and advise of such. This system seeks to reduce the need to travel to Georgetown to deliver a letter,” the Ministry said, adding that using a digital system will ensure that correspondences are no longer misplaced. It is expected that a similar system will be implemented by all Education Departments across the country in a short while.
