DBE Presidential Youth Employment Initiative (PYEI)
The department needed to assess the availability of assistants for schools, as well as their budgetary requirements. Some candidates did not meet the criteria to continue in the program. Therefore, Phase III will not be open for everyone.
The youth will be notified of their exit. The Department will offer exit packages through eCubed Technologies, which could include information about how to create a CV, a service letter and other opportunities the youth might have access to.
It is important to note that many of the youth who were part of the initial cohort in Phase I or II have found work elsewhere. They either enrolled for further education or quit the program to pursue other opportunities.
In this respect, the PYEI is successful. One of its mandates was to create pathways for youth success and further opportunities.

To be eligible for Phase III, all schools must complete and submit details about the youth who meet the requirements. The Provincial Education Department (PEDs) provides a type-form for this purpose. It is mandatory that you complete the type-form.
All schools must have their assistants recorded on the National Data Management System, (DMS), as this is the official reporting and management system. Bhelela Technologies is being acknowledged by the systems department for providing this data management software at no cost to sector.
Youth who remain in the programme will have the opportunity to apply the skills they have learned through Phase II training. Support teaching and learning at our schools.
The 2022 academic year will end on 17 March 2022 in inland schools, and 24 March 2022 in coastal schools. PEDs must immediately inform schools about the end of Phase II contracts for Assistants and the beginning of Phase III contracts. PEDs should send circulars to schools and provide all documents necessary for Phase III. This will provide youth with certainty.
