The development of its human resources is seen by the government as a high priority and an essential strategy for achieving national growth. Vision 2030, the nation's long-term development strategy, calls for the creation of a globally competitive and adaptive human resource base that will significantly support the economic, social, and political pillars that serve as the foundation for national prosperity.
As a result, there is a need for highly skilled, efficient, and motivated public sector employees who have obtained the essential knowledge, abilities, and competencies through education and training.
Teachers who are enrolled with the Teachers Service Commission are one of the beneficiaries, according to our source.
The Commission wants teachers to be aware that they have access to the training facility and can fund their own professional development through government support by means of the circular.
