Teachers Want To Be Paid For Invigilating Zimsec Exams

In interviews with The Herald, teacher’s unions confirmed they want the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) to pay them for invigilating national examinations. Examination fees are likely to increase if the request is granted.

In an interview with The Herald, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Professor Paul Mavima confirmed the demand from teachers, but said they would continue consulting with all stakeholders. He said he met with the teachers unions on Monday.

Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe secretary general, Mr Raymond Majongwe, said they want to be paid for invigilating. Zimbabwe Teachers Association chief executive officer, Mr Sifiso Ndlovu said Zimsec has demonstrated it can pay teachers since it is capable of hiring cluster managers. However, The Herald reports Zimsec said it was financially incapacitated and needs to explore ways to raise money for that purpose. Teachers also objected to the request by some school heads that they are supposed to invigilate while standing.
