The Western Cape Education Department has published a Vacancy list for school based promotional posts. This Vacancy List 3 of 2022 contains adverts for School Principals, Deputy Principals, Head of Departments and Post Level 1 Posts across all Western Cape Education Districts respectively.
Any enquiry about a post advertised in this special vacancy list must be directed to the school that advertised the post.
The advertisement number must be quoted in all correspondence.
The placing of an advertisement does not imply that the filling of that post will be authorised by the WCED. The WCED reserves the right to regard any post that cannot be filled as cancelled.
The date of appointment for posts advertised in this special vacancy list will be determined by the WCED.
As EDUPSTAIRS, we advise all Deputy Principal and Principal applicants to familiarize themselves with the NEW PUBLIC SCHOOL PRINCIPALS’ HANDBOOK.
The handbook provides guidance on three important areas:
- Academic Leadership,
- School Leadership and
- School Development Planning.
This handbook is NOT a policy document but it is a practical guide that is designed as a reference for Public School Principals to consult as they carry out their day to day roles and responsibilities. It will support Public School Principals to lead an effective school with the primary aim of improving teaching and learning in their schools.
All applicants need to be registered on the Western Cape Education Department’s eRecruitment System to be able to apply for any post.
The system is dependent on candidates capturing their personal information online before applying for posts in order for the system to generate the candidate’s curriculum vitae (CV).
Candidates must ensure that they capture at least three contactable referees.
The CVs are stored online and may be edited online.
For each application submitted, the system will immediately generate a letter (email) acknowledging receipt of an application for a post.
Applicants who have a PERSAL number must ensure that it is captured when registering on the system. The system will allocate a unique identification number for applicants that do not have a PERSAL number.
Applicants must be sure to click the correct advertisement number when applying for a post online.
Based on feedback received from users, the WCED implemented enhancements to the E-Recruitment system, specifically on the Employment History and Experience Set Fields.
The WCED does not accept responsibility for applicants applying for incorrect posts.
Hard-copy applications and applications sent by fax will not be considered.
Communication will be limited to those applicants who are shortlisted. Should a shortlisted applicant be in possession of a foreign qualification, the relevant evaluation certificate from the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) is required.
The closing time and date for the capturing of applications is 24:00 (midnight) on 30 SEPTEMBER 2022. The WCED does not accept responsibility for applications that are not captured in time and will not consider late applications.
Applicants must note that CVs and supporting documents must not be uploaded onto the system. The system will generate a CV based on the information captured in the applicant’s online profile.
CLOSING DATE: 30 SEPTEMBER 2022
