Ministry of Education delivers guidelines for the teacher appointment process in Boyacá

To date, 1,700 professors have been appointed since the public hearings for the allocation of 2023 positions began.

Tunja May 27, 2024. (UACP). The Boyacá Grande government began the explanatory process to resolve the hundreds of doubts, requirements and concerns that reach the Ministry of Education daily about how the process for assigning teaching positions for the department’s educational institutions is being carried out.

In this regard, the Secretary of Education of Boyacá, Eddye Yarik Reyes Grisales, detailed through a video the procedure carried out by the entity, since this issue is of interest to teachers and citizens in general.

The official explained that the appointment process comes from the merit contest organized by the National Civil Service Commission (CNSC) in 2022, which began to have public hearings last year.

National rules govern appointments

This entire process is governed by Law 105 of 1994, Decree 1075 of 2015 and circulars 24 and 39 of 2023, issued by the Ministry of National Education, which specify issues related to the employment of provisional teachers. Consequently, they are not rules that govern the process in general, they only apply to teachers who are provisionally appointed when there is no longer a list of eligible candidates.

In accordance with the above, the process to access vacancies is carried out as follows:

1. List of eligible: This includes, in meritorious order, all those teachers who, due to their abilities, passed the teaching competition offered in 2002 and the Ministry of Education held the public hearings in 2023, in which approximately 2,400 teachers who passed the competition were summoned, but many of them postponed, resigned or often did not show up at all. However, from January to May 2024, 1,700 teachers have been appointed since the temporary vacancies as permanent in the Department of Education of the department.

2. Reinforced stability: Circulars Nos. 24 and 39 refer to the fact that, once the lists of eligible candidates have been exhausted, teachers who were provisional and requested a process of reinforced stability must be taken into account, which has four forms, which are called positive actions:

* Catastrophic illness or some type of disability: The teachers present their clinical history and the occupational doctor will rule, in accordance with current regulations.

* Pre-pressing condition: Teachers must have the required time approximately three years before retiring.

* Father or mother head of family: Teachers must present the respective documentation that proves that they do not have a spouse who is contributing money, nor support for their children.

* Union immunity: That does not apply to the case of Boyacá.

3. Master system: It is the last instance, by which the Ministry of Education requests the Ministry of National Education to allow teachers to be summoned. In the month of April 2024, the platform was enabled to offer the first places through said application.

“Boyacá has been a judicious department in matters of appointments, regardless of the circumstances that arise such as resignations, not attending the hearing, among others, which delay the process,” explained the Secretary of Education.

This sector calls on teachers who wish to be part of the Ministry of Education to pay attention to the communications and information published through the website:, or through the Master System when the call and selection of the position is made.
