Directive – LSEs in Church Schools required to create Exam/Test papers on their own. 

The Union of Professional Educators  – Voice of The Workers, would like to highlight several complaints coming from various Church Schools, both Primary and Secondary. 

The issue had been previously discussed in an informal manner, but it was established that LSEs are not to be burdened with the responsibility of creating any exam or test paper. It was concorded that this is to be done in collaboration with the class or subject teacher, so as to ensure that the aim of the exam or test is reached. 

For this reason, we are issuing the following directive as a preventive measure to stop this practice. 

LSEs working in Church Schools, who are members of the UPE are to refrain from creating any exam or test papers on their own. Exam or test papers are to be created in collaboration with the class or subject teacher.
