The youth of South Africa make up the most of the unemployment rate in the country. This has been revealed by the number of applications received so far for Phase 2 of the Basic Education Employment Initiative.
As of 10am this morning DBE reported that it has received more than 1700000 applications from the youth of South Africa. The available posts are just under 300 000.
The youth have been using the zero rated website youth.Mobi. The website has been experiencing technical problems due to the amount of traffic it has been forced to carry.
The Department of Basic Education has extended the closing date to the 10th of October 2021. This will further increase the number of applicants drastically.
The Department of Basic Education made it clear that no students or anyone in formal training should apply. It is not clear as to how the department will be able to detect those who have applied despite not meeting the requirements.
For those who are still struggling to apply the department has introduced an application form that can be filled and submitted online. No walk-ins will be allowed at schools across the country.
Last year many people thought the posts were just a hoax. After seeing their peers earning a decent income many have now come out in their numbers fighting for the available posts.
The online application process will help eliminate corruption and bribes in unfortunate circumstances. South Africa is home to the highest form of corruption. Where people are desperate those in power tend to exploit them.
The start date for the posts will be November 1st 2021. The termination date unless amended is set to be on the 22nd of March 2022. Schools are yet to receive their own allocation so that they can know how many workers they will employ.
