MEC Grant Concludes Teacher Post-Allocation Consultations
"Given the economic and financial realities facing the government of the Western Cape, we are pleased to announce that we have offered to increase the amount of new educator posts in the 2010/2011 financial year by 322," said Grant.
"This makes a total of 2 531 new posts since 2005."
The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) has now concluded the consultation process between the MEC, teacher unions and school governing bodies.
The process will now continue with the acting Head of Department of the WCED and the relevant parties on the 17th of August 2009, where there will be consultation on the distribution of these posts to specific schools.
