Phase 2 opens for education assistant applications. Government, through its Basic Education Employment Initiative (BEEI), has called on unemployed youth to apply for the second phase of education assistants posts, which open today and close on 3 October 2021.
As part of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Presidential Employment Stimulus Programme (PES), the Department of Basic Education seeks to provide 287 000 unemployed young people with employment and training opportunities in the education sector.
The initiative seeks to mitigate the devastating economic challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a statement, the department said qualifying applicants must currently be between the ages of 18 and 35.
