Fourth Phase Of Teaching Assistant Initiative On The Cards
With the youth making up the majority of the unemployed population of South Africa, a government initiative has been providing opportunities to help lower unemployment numbers. The Department of Basic Education (DBE) has reiterated that it will move into the next chapter of its youth initiative.
The Presidential Youth Employment Initiative (PYEI) was launched to reduce youth unemployment and lessen the workload of teachers by assisting them in daily activities.
Amongst many things, some of the current participants are busy, helping out in preparations for the 2022 preliminary matric examinations.
In an interview, the Department of Basic Education (DBE) has confirmed:
To date, the PYEI in the Basic Education sector has created more than 850 000 employment opportunities.
The initiative is currently in its third phase, which comes to its end on 31 August 2022 and its fourth phase will kick off at the beginning of February 2022.
The Education Department has called for young people to participate in the Initiative in the education sector, taking up job opportunities and training that becomes available once they become assistants.
Some of the opportunities that the youth who are part of the initiative have benefited from include training offerings with Basic Education partners (Digify Africa, NEMISA, 2Enable, and Pinnock Consulting, eCubed).
The Education Department has shared that some of the participants of this initiative have taken a further step of enrolling for a teaching qualification, with some of them taking a path in child psychology.
General and teacher assistants that were placed in a school in Mpumalanga have shared that the Presidential Youth Employment Initiative (PYEI) has been beneficial to them and opened their eyes to future prospects.
A general assistant from the Siyamukela Primary School in Mpumalanga, Vhudzisani Sambo said being part of this initiative has led Sambo to have interest in being a teacher one day.
