NATIONAL NEWS - The Department of Basic Education (DBE) calls on teachers who are currently unemployed to apply for temporary employment in public schools.
“The length of the appointment will depend on the needs of the school you’re appointed in,” the department said in a press release over the weekend.
Unemployed teachers can register on the National Recruitment Database (NRD) for temporary employment as substitute educators in a public school. Remuneration will be per the conditions of the State.
The applicants must possess a teaching qualification, have no criminal record and be registered with the South African Council for Educators (Saace) to qualify. “Your information will be made available to all provinces in which you choose to be employed,” the department said.
In June, DBE Minister Angie Motshekga made an undertaking that additional substitute posts would be made available to assist in filling in for staff who are absent due to illness, age and comorbidities.
“Comorbidities such as hypertension, diabetes and cardiac disease are the three most commonly associated with serious illness if one contracts Covid-19,” Motshekga said.
