Department of Basic Education Teaching bursaries

Matriculants who want to pursue a career in the teaching profession have an opportunity to fulfil their dreams as bursaries are being offered by the Department of Basic Education.

The SA leanerships website, which promotes government job and training opportunities, issued a notice this week that the department was offering bursaries to matriculants through the Funza Lushaka bursaries programme this year.

Those interested in this opportunity have until January 11 to apply.

The department offers students the opportunity to complete a teaching qualification in an area of national priority.

The recipients of the bursary will be expected to teach at a public school for the same number of years that they received the bursary.

The bursary will pay for registration fees, tuition fees, meals and accommodation.

Students will also be paid an allowance for their practical work.

While the website said there were more than 4000 bursaries available, Basic Education Department spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga said while the bursaries had been issued, they had not stipulated how many matriculants would benefit.

“We have bursaries every year and the figure that is there is not ours. We give bursaries on the basis of the budget available. We do not determine that beforehand.”

National Teachers’ Union president Allen Thompson said the bursaries were a good initiative, especially in light of the unemployment crisis. “There was a time when these were abused for corrupt ends, and people claiming that teachers were educated through these bursaries when in fact they were not just to prioritise them for employment,” he said.

He said the bursaries were no longer the source of conflict because the recipients were no longer given preference for jobs.

Previously the department of education in KwaZulu-Natal had insisted that they employ Funza Lushaka graduate teachers first.

Natu felt this was unfair because these teachers had already received the benefit of the bursaries, compared to those who had self-funded their education.

He said the department had been among the first to make written regulations that give equal employment opportunity to graduate teachers regardless of whether they had studied through the bursary scheme or not.

Funza Lushaka Teaching Bursary / Scholarship

The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme is a multi -year programme that promotes teaching in public schools. Full cost bursaries are available to enable eligible students to complete a full 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 receive the bursary.

Qualified recipients of the bursary must request placement in a province of their choice. The provincial education department (PED) concerned will determine if there is a suitable post available. If there is not, the applicant may be placed in a PED that does not have suitable vacancies.

Selection criteria include the following:

  • The applicant’s academic ability;
  • Eligibility for an approved degree or PGCE in two of the priority areas;
  • Commitment to a teaching career, which includes: interest in working with young people; enthusiasm for a professional career in teaching; readiness to face and surmount difficult challenges; and personal integrity;
  • Commitment to teach in any school to which a student may be appointed by a PED.
  • Everything else being equal, selection should favour candidates from rural areas, candidates who wish to teach in rural areas and candidates whose financial position would otherwise exclude them from enrolment for a teaching qualification.

The Priority Areas Are:

Foundation phase (i.e. Grades R-3):Foundation phase specialization in an Indigenous African Language.
Intermediate and Senior Phase (i.e. Grades 4-9):A teaching major in two of the following: Mathematics; Natural Science; Technology.
FET phase (i.e. Grades 10-12): A teaching major in two of the following: Accounting; Agricultural Sciences; Agricultural Technology; Civil Technology; Computer Applications Technology; Economics; Electrical Technology; Engineering Graphics and Design; Geography; Information Technology; Life Sciences; Mathematics; Mechanical Technology; Physical Sciences.

What the bursary covers

Funza Lushaka bursaries cover all the recipient’s essential expenses. Expenses covered include tuition, full accommodation including meals, books and learning materials, and a small allowance for monthly living expenses. The allocation to any individual student is capped at a specific value. Where the HEI charges more than the capped value the bursars will have to top up from own funds. Universities have different cost structures, so the total value of a bursary differs from institution to institution.

Conditions For Repeating A Year

The bursary period may be extended to cover one additional year in a degree programme, or the time required for completion of one additional course in the PGCE programme. Only one such extension will be granted. Funding for an additional year of study (i.e. 5th year) is not automatic and will be considered on a case by case basis. In cases where support is provided for an additional year, the service obligation for the student is extended by a year. Any additional time required will be at the recipient’s own cost. The bursary is renewable for one academic year at a time. On proof of academic success the bursary may be renewed each year until the recipient of the bursary has qualified as a teacher.

Conditions For Repayment Of The Bursary

The bursary must be repaid only if the recipient fails to qualify, fails to apply for a teaching post with a PED at a public school, fails to take up a teaching post with a PED at a public school, leaves a teaching post with a PED before the end of the contracted service period, or otherwise fails to meet a requirement of the bursary agreement.

How To Apply

You need to apply for admission to a teaching qualification (B Ed or PGCE) or a Bachelors degree (e.g. BSc, B Tech, BA) with at least one major course in a priority area at a university of your choice. Once you have gained admission at a university, you are required to apply for the bursary via this Internet website:

The bursary is awarded for one academic year at a time and, on proof of academic success, the bursary may be renewed each year until the recipient of the bursary has qualified as a teacher. The bursary holder will be required to re-apply by the end of October for the following year. Recipients of bursaries will be required to teach one year for every year for which they receive a bursary.
