Unemployed with no matric | Apply for the Teachers and General Assistants Job

The Education Department has encouraging unemployed young people to seek for 287,000 short term jobs. The agency states that 192,000 educational assistants and around 95,000 general school workers are required.

Training is provided to the candidates selected. This was part of the President, who is part of the president's economic stimulus package for young employment.

According to the department's spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga, this work will ease certain stresses created by Covid-19.

'They are eligible and encouraged to apply for this enriching experience,' Mhlanga said, 'young individuals between the ages of 18 and 35, who are neither educated or training nor get any sort of government funding, as well as young people with impairments, and women.'

"Candidates selected for placement will be able for future employment chances to be trained in the skills that will equip them. For 5 months from 1 November 2021 to 31 March 2022, all successful candidates will be placed in school," Mhlanga remarked.

Successful applicants would work in many roles in schools including reading, ICT implementation, and curriculum development. Those who have not completed their matriculation were invited to apply. They'd be, among other things, handymen, sports officers, enrichment workers.

'You must have good communication skills in groups, you must have good listenership and an interest in academics to work in the education setting,' said Mhlanga.

Where applications should be sent was Candidates can create and apply a profile. There will be no on-site applications allowed.

Applicants who have been awarded the certificate must submit their CVs, identification cards, former school letters of recommendation, local chieftains or church officials, certificates for police clearance and copies of their qualifications. Applications will be accepted by 3 October starting on 27 September.

In the media on the website of the SA government, phase II will focus on lowering youth unemployment, as data collected during the program shows that most unemployed youth are unable to get to work.

The BEEI's work will go a long way to help the Ministry mitigate the detrimental effects of the academic interruptions of the COVID-19 since the first national pandemic lock-out in 2020.
