The Teachers Service Commission phased out the P1 job group G by promoting all P1 teachers to Diploma grade (job grade B5). The training will not be a strict regular exam programme but an induction meaning a pass will be guaranteed to all teachers who will participate.

The commission however states that it will not recruit teachers without a Diploma, revealing on its Facebook account that planned changes will not be instantaneous but will take time.
