Teachers to get 50% pay raise in the next Budget

In an interview with Uganda's minister of education and sports, Jessica Alupo. The minister tells The New Vision the highlights and achievements.

what are your major achievements this financial year?

We intensified our efforts to improve the quality of education at all levels. secondly, as a country, we have managed to review the curriculum, especially at the lower levels. We managed to implement the thematic curriculum from p1 to
P3 where children are taught in their local languages. We were also able to train teachers in science-related disciplines like computer skills and maths to promote science education.

We have also been working on the implementation of free education at a’level. At that stage, we have completed the full circle of providing free education to Ugandans from primary to a’level. There are slightly over 800 students who have benefited from this scheme.

We have also started working on the necessary legal measures for implementing the students’ loan scheme. The task force has come up with guiding principles.


Any challenges you have faced...?
Inadequate staff. We are not fully constituted. The staff we have at the headquarters is not enough. This affects the speed at which services are delivered. We are operating at between 60% and 70% capacity.

What is your planned budget for the next financial year?
The ministry of finance has kept changing it, but the latest approval is for about sh1.3trillion.


How much salary increment are you giving them (teachers) in the next financial year?

The teachers had asked for a 100% salary increment. i want to thank those teachers because they accepted to talk to the government through an interministerial committee which the prime minister constituted.

Full interview here: tinyurl.com/7usnojb

We eventually agreed that their salaries would be increased by 15% in the next financial year and in the 2013/2014 financial year, we shall further increase their salary by 20% and in the 2014/2015 financial year, their salaries will be increased again by 15%.

This means at the end of the next three years, the remuneration of teachers will have been increased by 50%. But we also want the teachers to consider the state of our economy. We also intend to pay science teachers additional allowances.
