“Individuals and organisations that will not have been vetted by April 30 will not be allowed to access schools during the second term,”said Amina.

Qualified teachers

She said the list of  approved individuals should be filed to the Principal Secretary, Early learning and Basic Education.

At the same time, she directed schools to ensure they have established strong guidance and counselling services before next month.

She said the departments must be headed by qualified Teachers Service Commission staff whose details must be communicated to the ministry’s field officers and with the ministry’s headquarters through the office of the director general.
