DBE BEEI Phase 4 Teaching Assistant Stipend and Payroll Signing

The Director-General Basic Education approved that the stipend for Phase 4 (IV) be kept same as stipend of Phase 3 (III). The reason being that Phase IV falls in two financial years; also, the Minister of Employment and Labour announces the approved National Minimum Wage end February, that will delay finalisation of Implementation Framework.

The Presidential Youth Employment Initiative (PYEI) was created under the Basic Education Sector to help young people in South Africa find work.

On the 22nd of September 2022, applicants were able to begin submitting their Phase four applications for the teaching assistant positions.

To combat the high young unemployment rate and generate employment opportunities, the Department of Basic Education (DBE) launched the Basic Education Employment Initiative (BEEI).

The Director-General Basic Education approved that the stipend for Phase 4 (IV) be kept same as stipend of Phase 3 (III). The reason being that Phase IV falls in two financial years; also, the Minister of Employment and Labour announces the approved National Minimum Wage end February, that will delay finalisation of Implementation Framework.

The EAs & GSAs will be paid a stipend of R4 081. 44 (minus 1% of the employee UIF) per month with the hourly rate of R23.19, which is aligned to the National Minimum Wage announced by Minister of Department of Employment and Labour in February 2022, and R30 per month for data. For example, the total amount payable for a full month of work should thus be R4 114.44 gross, minus UIF of R40,82, equaling a net monthly stipend of R4 070.63

The schools should ensure that stipends are in the individual assistants’ accounts by the 25th of each month. This date should be reflected on the payslip which must be given to the youth 2 – 3 days to the pay day. This will assist the youth to know when their stipends will be in their accounts.

Schools are to pay stipends using the electronic funds transfer (EFT) facility into accounts of youth. There should be NO CASH PAYMENTS of stipends or data allocation.
A payroll that indicates the names of all assistants, the month of payment and the column for date of payment must be signed by the assistant and provided for the signature of school principal and SGB chairperson (Annexure 28 – sample payroll).
The assistants must be provided with a salary advice
