TUVALU needs retired Fijian teachers.

And retired Fijian teachers who wish to continue teaching can apply for teaching posts in Tuvalu.

The Tuvalu Government is seeking nine teachers to teach maths and English at primary school level.

The request was made after a series of meetings between PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand, Education Ministry officials from Tuvalu and the country's high commissioner Lutelu Favae.

Mr Chand said the request was also to process the logistics of identifying teachers prior to the signing of a memorandum of agreement in two weeks.

"The priority area of need identified by the Government of Tuvalu's Education Ministry is in primary education, teachers will be engaged to teach literacy and numeracy at that level," Mr Chand said.

Retired school teachers who are willing to indicate their interest must first register their details with the National Employment Centre.

They must also produce an original birth certificate, a current passport photo, certified copies of academic transcripts, an updated curriculum vitae, certified copy of TIN letter, certified copy of driver's licence if available, certified copy of passport if available and a certified copy of a Certificate of Service.
