Before the start of the new school year, Saudi Arabia’s education officials announced hundreds of new positions. The Ministry of Education announced the opening of applications for 11,551 contract teaching positions in a variety of specialisations. According to the ministry, the targeted specialties are management, English language education, computer teaching, math, chemistry, and physics.

According to the rules and zones indicated for the openings, applications can be submitted via the unified national employment portal Jadara commencing at 9 am on July 25 and ending at 11 pm on July 30. After conducting personal interviews, unsuccessful or withdrawing candidates would be replaced with new ones, the ministry stated.

Successful applicants must fulfil the necessary qualifications for the positions, including those for practising the profession, possessing a university degree in the required specialty, and, if an international degree was obtained, having a domestic equivalent.

The ministry also stated that through advertising these positions, it hopes to fill them with talented educators who would help the country achieve its goals and improve education outcomes for international competitiveness. Beginning with the following academic year, the Saudi Arabia Education Ministry announced a plan to include earth and space sciences in the secondary school curricula.

The action was taken after a 10-day expedition to the International Space Station (ISS) by two Saudi Arabia astronauts. According to the ministry at the time, the decision to teach the earth and space sciences intends to encourage “students’ positive attitudes” towards the field. This is done in accordance with the best international practises for curriculum, as well as scientific and national standards.

The establishment of the new topic, according to the ministry, is part of its “keenness to cope with aspirations and future objectives” that aim to qualify citizens for international competition by improving learning outputs to keep up with changes in the globe, requirements for the future, and labour market needs.

In May, Saudi Arabia biomedical researcher Rayyanah Barnawi made history by becoming the first Arab woman to spend time in space. She arrived at the ISS alongside two US colleagues, Ali Al Qarni, a male Saudi astronaut.
