Stressful and underpaid

Teachers in South Africa work under a lot of pressure. Time constraints, pressure from the GDE, pressure from the parents and we can't discipline learners now we have to work with ill disciplined kids. We are under paid. Teachers cannot afford luxuries. We live from hand to mouth.

Pros

Security

Cons

Insufficient salary

Business units functions in isolations

I discovered even when you have good employees and systems but management who is not good it's impossible to achieve anything. Working here isn't good.

Pros

The working envoronment is not challenging at all.

Cons

Employees does one task every day, weeks and months.

The GDE aims to provide a holistic approach to each learner and to give learners education of a high standard.

A Holistic approach means all stake-holders at a particular school aim to provide each learner with the best all-round education in order to develop each learner’s full potential. During the time I was with the GDE we committed al of our resources to give equal opportunities to all our learners to be educated to the highest possible standard of each learner’s ability.

Pros

Security, salary, benefits, holidays.

Cons

Resources, overcrowding.

Progressive pay for the work done

I believe that there is no profession that could pride itself on its own had it not been of education. Educators need to be recognised for their hard work. The lot that they sacrifice to ensure that the country is furnished with quality learners that are fit for further institutions and later go into the difference sectors.

Pros

Fairly long school holidays

Cons

Low pay
