WCED Placement Offers Now Available For 2025



Thousands of learners in the Western Cape will start Grade 1 and Grade 8 in 2025. The provincial education department is now releasing placement offers for these learners. 



The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) began releasing school placement offers for the upcoming 2025 academic year. This will come as welcome news for parents who applied for their children to start Grade 1 or Grade 8 next year.

Parents who submitted applications during the designated "on-time" application period, which closed on 12 April 2024, can now access their child's placement offer through the WCED's online admissions system. 

Accepting Placement Offers 

For a smooth login experience, the WCED encourages parents to have their password and contact information readily available.

Parents who receive placement offers must accept or decline them by 14 June 2024. The WCED strongly encourages parents to respond as soon as possible especially if they have received offers from multiple schools.

By quickly accepting placement offers, parents don’t “double park” on the system and prevent other learners from receiving placement offers. 

Parents need to confirm their choice of school speedily when they have received offers from multiple schools. These parents are essentially ‘double parking’ on the system, stopping schools from offering these places to other applicants until they make their choice.  

The WCED warned that if parents do not confirm their choice by the June 14 deadline, the system will automatically confirm the top-ranked school that has made an offer. All other offers will be withdrawn to make those places available to other learners.

If a parent has not confirmed their choice by 14 June 2024, the system will automatically confirm their top-ranked choice of school that has made an offer. All other offers will then be removed, so that those places can be offered to other learners.  

Some parents will not receive placement offers on 30 May 2024, including those who applied during the "on-time" application period. The WCED assured that these parents will receive offers as soon as they become available.

Parents who do not receive an offer on 30 May 2024 should not be disheartened: thousands of additional offers can be made to parents who were not successful initially, as other parents confirm their choices and free up spaces.  

The provincial education department reaffirmed its commitment to placing every learner at a school in the province.

We will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to place every learner whose parents applied on time as quickly as possible.
