Job Description for WCED Teachers


WCED stands for the Western Cape Education Department. The Western Cape is a province in South Africa. Teachers for the WCED must follow the National Curriculum Statement.


  • WCED are required to follow the South African National Curriculum Statement, which emphasizes social justice, a healthy environment and human rights. Like all teachers, WCED teachers develop lesson plans, carry out lesson plans, assign homework that reinforces lessons and carry out examinations to ensure students are making progress.


  • In order to teach in the WCED, educators are required to have obtained a post-matric teacher qualification, which involves at least some of what the WCED calls "higher education," or post-secondary education.


  • According to the Western Cape Education Department, teachers are paid according to their pay class. These classes range from level 3 to level 12. As of 2007, WCED teachers at level 3 earn approximately 73,000 rand (the South African currency) per year and teachers at level 12 earn 430,000 rand per year. In 2010 U.S. dollars, these figures become approximately $10,500 and $62,000 respectively.
