Get a higher education without going to varsity

If a career in education is what you have in mind, don’t be deterred if you don't land a spot in your chosen university or educational institution. If you’ve missed the deadline or find yourself unable to be accommodated, you still have a unique opportunity available to you.

Do you have a passion for learning? Are you always looking to discover something new? Does the prospect of waking up every day to help shape the young minds of tomorrow fill you with a sense of excitement? Now that the 2016 academic year has almost passed, no doubt you are looking to secure your own future with a great sense of anticipation. A career in education could be the ideal career decision for you.

The South African education industry is short on skills and is looking to recruit more teachers. In a recent radio interview done with Jane Hofmeyer, Education policy and advocacy director at Centre of Development and Enterprise (CDE), there are many concerns about the state of education in South Africa. Of particular concern is the fact that teachers already within the industry are not necessarily matched to their skills, particularly at the foundation phase.
