Department Warns Against Fake Education Assistant Jobs



With an extremely high rate of youth unemployed, job advertisements from the education department are seen as an attractive proposition. This is especially true when that same department has launched youth employment initiatives in the last year.



The KwaZulu-Natal Education Department is warning youth against applying for positions as examination assistants. This department has warned that the job advertisement is fake and does not come from the Department of Basic Education (DBE).

The fake job advertisement contains the official DBE letterhead and the South African coat of arms. It also contains the job requirements, a closing date for applications and a web link where applicants can find out more information on the advertised positions.


Fake news.

It is important to note that the DBE currently runs the Basic Education Employment Initiative (BEEI) as its youth employment initiative. Participants of the BEEI are employed at schools in communities across South Africa as education and general school assistants.

Through the BEEI, the department has created 830 000 work opportunities over the programme's three phases. It has since been revealed that 63% of participants who were part of the BEEI were women.
