PYEI-BEEI Orientation Training

· October 21, 2021


Welcome to the Presidential Youth Employment Initiative in the Basic Education Sector Phase IV and congratulations on being selected! All assistants in Phase IV are required to do this training and we’re so glad to be on this journey with you.

This online training should take you around 10 hours to complete, but you can do it in your own time and take it lesson by lesson. Once you’ve completed all the lessons, you can download your certificate.

You will find that most lessons end with a quiz, to help you think about and remember what you have learnt. It will help you to have a notebook to take notes of things – you can do this with drawings, summaries or mind maps. Whatever works for you.

We wish you an enjoyable and successful experience and we look forward to hearing how you progress!


Presidential Youth Employment Initiative in the Basic Education Sector (PYEI-BEEI) is carried out in the Basic Education sector – in other words, in schools – and it is part of a presidential programme to take on three challenges that face our youth today. These three are a lack of jobs, poverty and inequality. PYEI-BEEI is part of a recovery programme that is put in place by the government to help young people like you.

How, you might ask? PYEI-BEEI is creating 255 100 job opportunities for unemployed youth who are 18 – 35 years old. These jobs are in every province, all over the country.

There will be different starting groups and starting dates in each province. All the contracts will be between five and eight months in total, mostly from February to September 2023. You will be told when your starting and ending dates are.

The DBE has developed this orientation programme to help you find your way with enough information to help you help the teachers with the tasks that need to be done. It will also allow you to give meaningful support in your role at the school where you are appointed. One of the important outcomes of your role in PYEI-BEEI is that you are able to develop important skills that can help you find a job after the contract ends.
