Youth encouraged to apply for 287 000 teacher, general assistant positions now open

The Department of Basic Education on Sunday revealed that it has opened Phase 2 of the Basic Education Employment Initiative programme. The Phase 2 of the programme will be to make sure that 287000 teachers and general assistants employed, the department said.

Department spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga said the candidates are going to be put in schools for 5 months from the 1st of November 2021 until the 31st March 2022. Applications are going run from 27 September and close on 3 October. The applicants need their matric certificates to prove that they passed their matric in order to qualify for the job, NQF Level 4, 6 and 7 would be an added advantage. 

The posts that will be filled, according to the department: 

Applicants that are going to be placed in sport and enrichment agent positions as assistants are not going to be required to bring their matric certificates.

Trade certificates would be an added advantage, it said. The department said young people recruited for the phase 2 of the programme could expect to receive training in information technology, sports enrichment and infrastructure maintenance. 

More jobs are being created and that means a lot of South African citizens, especially young ones are going to get a chance to change their lives and have jobs. This is somehow going to reduce the unemployment rate in the country, which is a good thing because a lot of people are living in poverty due to unemployment.

If each and every department does the same thing that the Department of Education just did, most South African citizens are going to have jobs and the unemployment rate is going to reduce at a very high rate. People have been crying out for jobs and now at least some people are going to have those jobs and change their lives for the better, it takes at least one job to make a difference.
