Department of Education has issued a plea to jobless youngsters to apply for 287,000 short-term posts that need to be filled. According to the agency, it requires 192,000 education assistants and around 95,000 general school helpers.
Candidates that are chosen will get training. This was a part of the presidential youth employment introduction program, which is a component of the presidential employment stimulus program.
According to department spokeswoman Elijah Mhlanga, the department hopes that these posts would ease some of the pressures imposed by Covid-19.
“Youth between the ages of 18 and 35, who are neither in education or training, nor receiving any form of government grant, as well as young people with disabilities and women, are eligible and encouraged to apply for this enriching experience,” Mhlanga explained.
“Candidates who are selected for placement will have an opportunity to receive training in skills that will equip them for future employment opportunities. All successful candidates will be placed in schools for five months, from November 1 2021 to March 31 2022,” Mhlanga added.
Successful applicants would work in schools in positions ranging from reading tutoring to ICT and curriculum implementation. Those who had not completed their matriculation were also urged to apply. They would work as handymen, sports agents, and enrichment agents.
“To work in the education environment, you must have a good ability to work with people, and within groups you must have good communication skills and be a good listener and have interest in academics,” concluded Mhlanga.
Applications were to be submitted online at sayouth.mobi. Applicants might build a profile and submit their applications from there. There would be no walk-in applications allowed.
Shortlisted candidates must provide their CVs, identity documents, testimonials from their previous school, local chief, or church leader, police clearance certificates, and copies of their qualifications. Applications will be accepted beginning September 27 and will be accepted through October 3.
