The Ministry of Education decided today to extend until Thursday the deadline for submitting applications for the placement of kindergarten teachers and primary and secondary school teachers in public schools.

The initial deadline was Tuesday, with the National Education Federation (FNE), one of the unions representing teachers, complaining today that the computer platform for submitting applications was flawed and calling on the government to extend the dates of the competitions.

In a subsequent note to the media, the Ministry of Education, Science and Innovation states that it has “reinforced server capacity” and that it has decided to extend the deadline for submitting applications for the 2024/2025 internal and external competitions until 18:00 on Thursday.

The ministry recognizes that there was “high access to the platform of the Directorate-General for School Administration” as “the initial deadline” for submitting applications approached.

In the note, the government stresses that “it is essential that the competitions run smoothly, guaranteeing the serenity of public school teachers”, in a year in which “new rules are being applied to teacher placement competitions”.
