New applications for Funza Lushaka bursary close today

Source: My Dream Course Blog

The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme is a multi-year programme to promote teaching as a profession.

Bursaries are available to enable eligible students to complete a teaching qualification in an area of national priority. Recipients of these bursaries will be required to teach at a public school for the same number of years that they received the bursary.

Recipients of the bursary must apply online for the bursary in every year and must also complete the placement information as required in every year.

The Provincial Education Department will place a graduate bursar in a suitable teaching post.

If a particular PED does not have a suitable teaching post for the graduate bursar, the applicant may be placed in a PED that does have a suitable post.

Please note that bursars cannot choose the school in which they would like to be placed and placement cannot be deferred for any reason.
