The Department offers you so much learning opportunities. A typical day at work starts with administrative duties and tasks that are deadline driven. I enjoyed working at the Department as an intern because i had a learning opportunities that have been a benefit outside the department

Great place to work at. An 8 hour work day leaves you with more than enough time to do other things of interest. The salary is good but not enough for someone with great ambitions

I believe that the department need a lot of changes particularly in progression of learner's. Teachers need a lot of training in content mastery because most of them are not qualified in the profession.
Pros
Continuous learning
Cons
Safety

Working for the Department of Basic Education was an eye opener I traveled and learnt a lot, by meeting different people with different experiences. The colleagues where always willing to assist in anyway possible, so never felt left out. The environment was both exciting and inviting, and it was also peaceful with a lot of friendly people.
