We took a small sample of experienced teachers who have been unable to find long term teaching jobs this year, and this is what we found. 33% of the sample have poor references from recent past employers. 11% of of the sample can not be contacted - they don't respond to phone calls, messages, SMS and email.

Foreign Teachers in South Africa - the Situation in May 2017

Posted: 16-05-2017
At present Placements in Education only accepts applications from people who are South African Citizens or Permanent Residents of South Africa, and who obtained their teaching qualifications in South Africa. We regret having to take this decision, and the purpose of this article is to outline why we have adopted this policy. The Department of Basic Education in South Africa has taken a decision not to employ foreign teachers – even those who have work permits - in their schools. This means that no matter what Province you are in, foreign teachers can not be employed in State Schools.

Alison PapenfusDecember 2016 In January 2017 South Africa will have the highest unemployment amongst teachers ever.From the look of it, more than 50% of unemployed teachers will be new graduates.

In 2016 we had a lot of new graduates without teaching jobs in January, and by April almost all of them were employed.
