DBE’s Presidential Youth Employment Stimulus labelled a success

Published on

The DBE has labelled its implementation of the Presidential Youth Employment Stimulus as a success, as it has reportedly created over 300 000 job opportunities.

The Department of Basic Education (DBE) took to Twitter on Tuesday, 23 March 2021, to endorse a statement labelling its implementation of the Presidential Youth Employment Stimulus a success. Towards the tail end of 2020, the department canvassed for teaching assistants to offer lessons for learners during the school break. The employment opportunity was suggested as a three-month contract to give unemployed but qualified educators between the ages 18 and 35 work experience.

According to the statement, “The initiative aims to use direct public investment to create opportunities for employment and support workers negatively impacted by the pandemic ends on Wednesday, 31 March 2021. The department said over 868 000 applications were received from young people when the initiative was started. Of the 300 000 successful candidates, 200 000 were Education Assistants and 100 000 were General School Assistants.”
