Interesting and life changing work place

My job was my dream. It was fun, learning new things and getting to know other people's behaviors and ideas. It is a wonderful experience to work with developing minds. It was stressful because of too much paperwork and extra time, at the end of the day the salary was very disappointing.

Pros

Sports and cultural activities

Cons

Working at home, during weekends and holidays

Fullfilling . interactive funny

Day Starts y about 07h00 and fimishes around 14h00. When dealing with school children (High School), you learn patience, empathy (some come from extremely poor homes-without Food and torn clothes, but you have treat them the same those who are energetic-had their breakfast or decent meal. some tomes you have to get them food before the day's lessons. You have to assess their work from the background's perspective.i.e you allow for answers to the questions as informed by their sub-culture-as close as possible to the question -set by an examiner who is clueless about their culture or subculture, This is the most difficult part of Teaching, also your teaching pace is set by the children's understanding NOT the Curriculum, hence you have to Teach them after school times and even on Sartuday if they are in grade 10, 11 or 12, Matric results are are reflection on you as the teacher. No parent expects their child NOT to appear National newspaper in January, even if they never known throught the year whether their Child was ready for the Matric examination or not.This is the hardest part of being a Teacher (High School Teacher) but it is a good Challenge an opportunity to do your best to help the nation and make you indelible mark in the lives and mind of our future Leaders. It is very fulfilling to see them to seem later in life -after university or tertiary education when you see them occupying high position in the world of work and they simply greet you with a smile and say" thank you sacrificing for us"

Pros

Contribution to nation building

Cons

No scope of career growth or Salary advancement even if you up-skill yourself.

Interesting challenging work environment

Learning how to take down minutes, compiling reports, dealing with audit queries, invoicing, solving queries amongst the clients, hiring of teachers, dealing with PPN Certificates. I was working with a Deputy Director in both Finance Sector as well as HRSS Sector. The work environment i can say was amazing, we all respected each other and they made sure they explain tasks properly to make it easy for us to execute them properly without missing our deadlines.

It was a very proactive and fun place to work at

dealing with different people and different stakeholders is very difficult but you must always act professional. when there is a lot f pressure but managers do not want to learn and assist. but being left alone to do all administrative work and do not get credited for that performance. management only delegating their duties and do not want to learn about their tasks in times of crises they can not assist. the most enjoyable part is when I will perform financial duties and book keeping, record keeping and capturing school data.

Professional environment but little salary.

The department of education has good systems and organised work process flow, but their salary structure is not interesting. Office staff are mostly underpaid while working long hours than educators who were paid more. That was really discouraging.

Exciting,rewarding and productive

We had to assist educators in re-checking the scripts. The management is great. The only thing hard about it is the late shifts. But it is very rewarding.
