Qualified Educaors_database9 April 2013 - The Department of Basic Education has recently re-launched their National Recruitment Database of Qualified South African Educators. This database is available for download from the DBE website and lists the details of educators who are currently seeking employment across all provinces. The qualifications and subjects, which the educator is qualified to teach have been verified and captured accordingly.

School principals seeking qualified reinforcements

It's as easy as downloading the spreadsheet of unemployed educators, identifying a suitable candidate and contacting the Department of Basic Education. Keep the reference number of the candidate(s) at hand and call Ms Sacha Wilson at 012 357 3721 or email her at for the contact details of the candidate(s).

The database is growing everyday and is updated monthly, making it worthwhile to check back in regularly.
