A part-time job is a flexible type of employment.  One works less hours a week than a full-time employee and often requires working rotating shifts. Part-time employment is aimed at different people, especially students. Students working a part-time job can bring a great sense of independence, increase their self-esteem and accountability. This too provides students with an opportunity to utilize their practical skills and gain experience that universities/ colleges would not be able to teach you.


The Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) was established in 2009 when the former Department of Education was divided into two sections: Basic Education and Higher Education and Training.
