DBE Presidential Youth Employment Initiative (PYEI) Teaching Assistant Phase 4

As the third phase of the Presidential Youth Employment Initiative (PYEI) ends on 31 August 2022, the Department of Basic Education (DBE) prepares for the phase 4 roll out and has encouraged new applicants to register their details as applications will open soon.

Since its launch in 2020, more than half a million young South Africans have participated in the programme that was initiated to assist young people seeking employment during the height of the pandemic.

Early this year the Department of Basic Education (DBE) announced that the programme will be extended and the applications for phase 4 of the employment initiative will open on 22 September 2022.

The programme gives young people between the ages of 18-35 an opportunity to learn and gain skills and knowledge which they can then use to pursue future careers and employment.

The department has stressed that in order to make space available for other unemployed youth seeking employment and skills development, anyone who has already participated in the programme will not be allowed to reapply.

Current teaching assistants and other young people who have participated in the programme previously are encouraged to use the skills they have acquired during the programme to further their careers.

The department has urged new applicants to register their details on the www.sayouth.mob system. The system is easy to navigate and is zero rated, so it does not include any data costs.
