The Department of Basic Education (DBE) introduced the Basic Education Employment Initiative (BEEI) to create jobs in their sector. Through the programme, around 280,000 young people were employed in schools across the country as education and general school assistants.
Applications for phase 4 of the education assistant jobs will open on 26 September 2022. However, youth can visit the applications website from 5 September 2022 which will allow them to gather all the relevant information needed when applying.
Youth between the ages of 18 and 34 will be able to register on the SAYouth.Mobi online recruitment system for the positions. The website is free to use and does not require any data.
Here’s Who Qualifies For Phase 4
- Youths between the ages of 18 and 34 years old when they apply
- Youth must live within a 5 km radius of the school (or 30 km radius if it is a small, micro or farm school)
- Education Assistant (EA) must have a Matric qualification
- General School Assistants (GSA) do not need a Matric qualification
It's important to note that individuals who were previously part of the initiative will not be able to apply for phase 4 education assistant jobs. Applicants cannot be employed, participate in training or participate in a learnership programme.
Full and part-time students cannot apply for phase 4 education assistant jobs. Applicants also can't be participating in online, distance learning or short courses.
The BEEI impacted the lives of thousands of youth around the country, and some education assistants have shared how the initiative impacted their lives.
