Employers with Foreign Teachers on Critical Skills Visas and Quota Work Permits

Posted: 16-05-2017
Pitfalls and Pressure Points Since 2006 the South African Government has been issuing Quota Work Permits to foreign teachers of scarce subjects so that they can work in South African Primary and High Schools. In May 2014 the Minister of Home Affairs signed new regulations concerning Quota Work Permits, which became effective on 25thMay 2014. From that time, new Quota Work Permits were not issued. They were to be replaced by Critical Skills Visas, which will be valid for up to five years (as were the Quota Work Permits).

Our worst case scenario for qualified and experienced teachers with good references is usually 60 days from CV to employment.

He had called the Afrikaans Educators into his office to politely ask them to speak English in the staffroom, as there had been some grumbles that they were being given special treatment. Two of the Afrikaans teachers understood and complied.
