(MENAFN) The Saudi Council of Ministers decided to create 12,600 jobs for graduates of the now-defunct secondary women teachers’ institutes, SPA reported.

The weekly Cabinet meeting, chaired by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah, has set up a ministerial committee to finalize procedures to appoint graduates of these institutes, which were closed several years ago.

Culture and Information Minister Abdul Aziz Khoja said 12,600 graduates of those institutes would be given fourth grade administrative jobs at girls schools within three years, beginning academic year 2011-12. Every year 4,200 graduates will be employed under the plan.

Priority will be given to candidates who have waited the longest and secured the highest marks. They will be given jobs near their homes.

The secondary women teachers’ institutes were established in 1976 to train teachers to work in primary schools. There were 81 such institutes in 1982 with 7,637 students.
