Teachers Assistants in the Free State have had their prayers answered now that their contracts have been extended. As part of the Presidential Employment Stimulus Programme, 300 000 youth across South Africa were hired to be school assistants.


If you participated in the School Assistants programme, Youth Capital wants to hear from you. Your voice and opinions are important and can help those who design and implement these programmes make them more relevant.

 


Applications to be enrolled in Western Cape schools close today. The application system opened on 26 February. Applications can be submitted both online and manually.
