2024 ECD Teachers Programme Application. The program seeks to hire about 2,800 people who will go through extensive training and be put in registered and legal ECD centers.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
The Early Childhood Development (ECD) sector plays a vital role in shaping the educational journey of young children. Recognizing the importance of early education, the ECD function has been shifted to the Department of Education, with the aim of professionalizing the sector and ensuring that every child receives quality early education. However, many ECD centres, which are often run as non-profit organizations (NPOs), face various challenges in complying with regulations, meeting required standards, and accessing funding. Additionally, the shortage of qualified teachers hinders the optimal learning and development of children. To address these challenges and uplift the ECD sector, innovative programmes are being implemented to create job opportunities for youth while improving the quality of early education.
The program’s main goal is to have at least one certified and fully trained ECD teacher at each ECD center. There are a lot of young people who can be taught to support ECD centers. These young professionals will make sure that kids get a good education while playing by giving them professional advice and creating a supportive learning atmosphere.
Applicants interested in these programs must meet specific criteria. Applicants must:
- Have completed their matriculation from a school in Gauteng.
- Be Gauteng residents.
- Be under 35 years old, without turning 36 or older during the program.
With this program, the ECD industry will be supported and young people will have access to worthwhile employment prospects. This program improves the standard of early education by addressing the difficulties NPOs encounter, such as the lack of certified teachers. The program also gives young people the tools they need to succeed in the education sector by giving them access to training, job opportunities, and activities to get them ready for the workforce.
