Education Service Commission Uganda Recruiting Massively
Education Service Commission Uganda has advertised for Jobs and career opportunities in Uganda.
Uganda’s education system has undergone tremendous changes since 1979 when most institutions in the country had virtually collapsed. In the early 1980’s, emphasis was mainly on the rehabilitation and expansion of schools, albeit without proper planning. Between 1980 and 1985, education accounted for an average of only 15.6% of recurrent government expenditure, reflecting its low priority at the time. However, since 1986, government expenditure on the education sector has risen steadily, and as of 2000, accounted for up to a third of total government discretionary recurrent budget.
Education is one of Government’s key sectors and has continued to receive priority in resource allocation. Today 8% of total government recurrent budget is allocated to the education sector, with primary education, including the primary teacher-training budget, receiving more than 62% of this allocation. Secondary education currently receives 15% of the sector recurrent budget allocation, (also including secondary teacher training).
