Maxi-concorso scuola 2015

Concorso scuola 2014-2015, è ufficiale: nuovo bando per 17mila

Il ministro Giannini ha confermato il nuovo concorso a cattedre

Era la voce più attesa, quel sogno nel cassetto di migliaia e migliaia di aspiranti insegnanti che, però, sembrava tramontato dopo le recenti smentite arrivate dal Miur. E, invece, ecco l’uscita più inattesa, da parte della massima istituzione in tema di scuola nel nostro Paese: il ministro della Pubblica istruzione Stefania Giannini ha confermato l’arrivo di un nuovo concorso a cattedre.
Secondo le prime indiscrezioni, il nuovo maxiconcorso dovrebbe portare all’assunzione di altri 17mila insegnanti e dovrebbe svolgersi un anno e mezzo dopo quello indetto dal suo predecessore Francesco Profumo, ministro sotto il governo di Mario Monti.
Nei giorni scorsi, in vari interventi, il ministro Giannini non ha nascosto la sua perplessità sul sistema dei Tfa, il cui bando, comunque, per il 2014, rimane confermato, con ogni probabilità per il mese di giugno, a seguito del rinvio per l’avvicendamento in Ministero tra Maria Chiara Carrozza e la stessa Giannini.
Ora, però, la rotta del ministero è tornata quella della selezione pubblica per i docenti, dopo il ritorno ai maxiconcorsi con il governo tecnico di due anni fa, che varò il bando per l’assunzione di nuovi insegnanti a tredici anni di distanza dal precedente.
Nel mezzo, come tutti i diretti interessati sanno bene, la fase delle graduatorie, tra supplenze infinite, classifiche ad esaurimento e punti maturati all’interno del singolo istituto: un meccanismo che, per la maggior parte dei casi, non ha prodotto altro che precariato cronico tra gli insegnanti e continue ricollocazioni per le cattedre di anno in anno.
Il sistema del concorso pubblico, invece, sembra dare maggiori garanzie e, sebbene gran parte dei vincitori della precedente edizione debba ancora entrare in ruolo, dalle parti del Miur hanno intenzione di riprovarci, con la speranza che, insieme, possano rientrare, oltre a nuovi docenti, anche quelli già avviati nel sistema dei punti in graduatoria.
Secondo la road map del ministero, il nuovo concorso a cattedre si terrà nei primi mesi del 2015 e dovrebbe concludersi in tempo per l’immissione in ruolo a settembre 2016 dei 17mila vincitori.

Hong Kong


Dear Colleagues,

Applications are invited for the Hong Kong Postgraduate Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS) studentships to commence study in September 2015. HKPFS is a special scheme run by the HK University Grants Council designed to attract the best students for doctoral study in Hong Kong. The scheme is extremely generous in terms of remuneration and benefits and it is open to all applicants irrespective of nationality. You can find out more about the scheme at: https://cerg1.ugc.edu.hk/hkpfs/index.html.

Over the last few years, the School of Communication at Hong Kong Baptist University has been increasingly successful in helping students obtain these very competitive awards. We should like to ask you to encourage any of your students who are interested in pursuing doctoral studies to apply to us. The School is a large one with a wide range of research interests. We are interested in potential students who wish to research in the following areas:

Film Studies (documentary studies, television studies and Asian cinemas are particularly strong specialisms)
Journalism (comparative media systems, media education and literacy, and Chinese media are particularly strong specialisms)
Communication Studies (advertising and public relations, organisational and health communication are particularly strong specialisms)

Students with other interests within these general areas are strongly encouraged to contact the School to discuss whether we possess the expertise to supervise them should they decide to apply.

Our doctoral programme is very international in orientation and composition. We have students from Europe, the US, Africa, South Asia and East Asia and we are keen to maintain such a cosmopolitan student body. A student interested in applying can find further details of the School at: http://www.comm.hkbu.edu.hk/. The general conditions for admission to the university’s Graduate School are at: http://gs.hkbu.edu.hk/.

Hong Kong is an excellent place to study for a doctoral degree. The university is very well supported by the UGC and research is one of the main priorities. Universities enjoy a very high level of academic freedom. (Incidentally, despite its name, Hong Kong Baptist University is a secular public university that welcomes students of all religions and none.) Hong Kong bills itself as “Asia’s World City” and has a diverse population. Faculty and students are active participants in the city’s vigorous civic life.

There is a two-step application process. Potential students must first register their interest with the UGC at the URL above and obtain a registration number. They then apply to HKBU through the Graduate School using that registration number as a reference. Applications are exclusively electronic. The deadline for applications for a September 2015 start is 12.00 Hong Kong time (GMT+8) on 1st December 2014.

Should any of your students be interested in learning more about these opportunities, they can feel free to contact me directly at [log in to unmask].

Best wishesHong
