How Much is ECD Learnership 2023 Stipend

How much will participants be paid when they apply for the Early Child Development Teacher Learnership 2023?  In this post, you will find out all about this Gauteng outstanding programme.

The Early Childhood Development (ECD) sector plays a vital role in shaping the educational journey of young children. Recognizing the importance of early education, the ECD function has been shifted to the Department of Education, with the aim of professionalizing the sector and ensuring that every child receives quality early education.

In a remarkable three-way partnership between the Gauteng City Region Academy (GCRA), Health and Welfare Sector Education and Training Authority (HWSETA), and BlackBark Productions, a unique programme has been established to enable youth employment and equip ECD centres with trained ECD teachers. The programme focuses on ensuring that each ECD centre has at least one fully trained and qualified ECD teacher. With a significant number of young people who can be trained to support ECD centres, the programme aims to recruit approximately 2,800 individuals who will undergo comprehensive training and be placed in registered and compliant ECD centres. By providing professional guidance and fostering a nurturing learning environment, these young professionals will ensure that children receive quality education while engaging in play-based activities.

Applicants interested in these programs must meet specific criteria. Applicants must:

• Have completed their matriculation from a school in Gauteng.
• Be Gauteng residents.
• Be under 35 years old, without turning 36 or older during the program.
This initiative is a crucial step toward supporting the ECD sector while creating valuable job opportunities for the youth. By addressing the challenges faced by NPOs, including the shortage of qualified teachers, this programme contributes to improving the quality of early education. Furthermore, the programme empowers young people by providing them with training, employment prospects, and exposure to work readiness initiatives, ensuring their professional growth and success in the education sector.
