Teacher Training & Placement
The WCED advertises educator vacancies on its website. You can search for a post by post level, school, suburb, town and education district. The site contains details of the application requirements and you can download application forms.
Before you can register with the South African Council of Educators and take up a teaching position, you need to obtain a recognised teaching qualification.
All educators need to register with the South African Council of Educators (SACE). You can't be hired as an educator if you're not registered.

The South African Council of Educators (SACE) is working with the Education Labour Relations Council (ELRC) and the national Department of Educators to upgrade teacher qualifications. Every teacher must have at least a three-year qualification. An interim INSET qualification, the National Professional Diploma in Education (NPDE), allows teachers to upgrade their qualifications to meet the new standard (REQV 13; M+3).
