Very productive workplace

This job was okay for the most part. Interviews went well and was contacted within the same week. I learnt a lot and it is challenging and character building.

Overtime hours with no extra rumenuration.

Very stressful and time consuming. Leadership is not in line with real world issues. Ineffective communication between departments which leads to duplication of tasks. Departments also not on par with their job descriptions and often isn't aware of their core duties and obligations or how they fit into the 'chain' so that the company can run at its optimal potential.

Pros

You get paid on time.

Cons

Extra work without compensation.

Long and there was no stimulation to keep you interested.

I worked as a mark checker for the WCED. I was employed for the NSC for 2019. We had to check if all the marks were correct and being captured correctly. The work was long and very draining because there is no stimulation.

Productive and fun workplace

Excellent hierarchical structure and good management. I learned to be a people's lover and accountability. I enjoyed being with children, teaching and imparting my knowledge and expertise to them. I grew in loving to work with people, especially school kids. This was for me a learning curve; a job is not only about money, but about engaging and making an impact rather.

Pros

Only work for 5 days

Cons

Daily tiredom

the opportunity was very enriching. i was given ample opportunity to participate in all classroom activities. my input and opinions were valued.

every day was different. i learnt new things daily and faced challenges by engaging with my colleagues and solving any problems by discussion and involving all parties. the most enjoyable part of the day was definitely seeing the growth in the children on a daily basis.

Pros

very helpful colleagues

Cons

limited resources

Government Education

Good subsidies. High demands. Team work essential. I have developed a philosophy of life-long learning. My day would start with briefing meetings and follow through with educating little ones to the best of my ability. Large classroom numbers with limited resources has been the most difficult part of my jobs. Lack of parental involvement was also a huge struggle for me. I enjoyed working with the children, who - for the most part, participated well.

Pros

Housing and Medical Aid

Cons

Extended working hours without reumeration

As an educator you must stay on trend with new teaching methods.

Come prepared but be flexible. Set high standards for all your students. Build a relationship with parents and care givers. Be will to take your admin home.

Pros

December Holiday

Cons

Social Media Conscious

Too much admin. 42-45 learners in class, learners have many personal problems.

At a public school in a area where parents dont care for their kids and they more street smart than book smart. Learners have alot of personal issues to work through before academics can be learnt. Contextual factor is 42 kids cramed in a classroom. You have to be tolerant. You have to be everything to the child.and counsel them.through certain personal factors and also love them immensely also be consistent and positive making learning fun being enthusiastic everyday.

Pros

Holidays

Cons

A great working and Learning enviromnent

WCED is a great place to work at as the environment is always peaceful. I have learnt that team work is key. the management is fair and is willing to co operate with junior staff members. Team work is being emphasized sharing of ideas. The hardest part to me was dispatching at the beginning sorting out of schools pay slips was kind of tricky but as time goes by u turn to operate effectively it becomes easier. It is always nice working there as the mood is always polite i enjoyed ever moment there.
