An extraordinary year

In 2023, three calls for teaching posts will be held in the Balearic Islands. Today’s tests, which correspond to the ordinary competitive examination of replacement rates, offer a total of 564 places and form part of this process. The other two tests correspond to the exceptional stabilisation process established by the Law for the reduction of temporary employment: the merit-based competition for the stabilisation process, with 2,583 places available, for which the list of candidates who have obtained places has already been published, and the competitive examination for the stabilisation process, with 265 places, which began on Sunday 18 June.

Thus, taking into account the positions from the extraordinary process and the encomendero of replacement rates, 8,208 positions have been stabilised since 2017.

Overall, a total of 5,195 candidates have been admitted to the two competitive examinations: 3,141 to the stabilisation examinations and 2,058 to the ordinary examinations. In total there are 110 tribunals made up of 550 teachers for the two competitive examinations this year, of which 56 correspond to the stabilisation examinations and 54 to the ordinary examinations.
