When will the Assistant teacher application 2024 open?

Unfortunately, the official date for the 2024 assistant teacher application in South Africa hasn’t been announced yet since there has been elections, GNU (Government of National Unity), inauguration and so forth. However, based on previous application periods, we can make some educated guesses.

Previous Application Periods (for reference):

What to Expect for 2024:

  • The PYEI program has been extended. This means there will likely be a Phase V for teacher assistant recruitment in 2024.
  • Historically, applications tend to open around the close of the financial year, which falls in April, but if not, it can open around September in preparation for the 2025

Staying Updated on Application Dates:

While we wait for the official announcement, here are some ways to stay informed:

  • Department of Basic Education (DBE) website: Keep an eye on the DBE website (https://www.education.gov.za/) for official updates regarding teacher assistant applications.
  • SA Youth platform: The SA Youth platform (https://www.sayouth.mobi/) is the designated online portal for PYEI applications. Sign up and follow their updates for notifications on application openings.
  • Education news websites and social media: Subscribe to reliable education news websites and social media pages of reputable organisations like the National Professional Teachers’ Organisation of South Africa (NAPTOSA) to stay updated on the latest developments regarding teacher assistant programs.

Preparing for the Application:

While the official date remains unconfirmed, you can use this time to prepare effectively for your application:

  • Eligibility: Ensure you meet the eligibility criteria as outlined by the DBE. This typically includes being a South African citizen between 18 and 35 years old, possessing a matric certificate, and residing near your preferred school.
