The Director-General of Home Affairs, Mkuseli Apleni, has noted with concern misinformation in some social media circles claiming that the department is offering training with prospects of employment to matriculants. The Department wishes to put it on the record that such reports are false and devoid of truth, with a potential to mislead young people who are desperately in need of work.
What Home Affairs has initiated through its Learning Academy in the quest to contribute to the national drive for skills development and fighting unemployment is a cadet programme for unemployed graduates. The cadet programme for graduates will first run as a pilot with effect from February 2014. In this regard the selection of prospective candidates has been finalized.
The cadets will be taken through the Home Affairs national certificate on home affairs services. The aim is to produce skills and offer experience to young graduates, who may, depending on their performance, be absorbed within our services or seek employment in other departments and elsewhere.
The cadet programme is part of the strategy to attract, train and introduce to the public service new officers who are security-conscious, professional, hard-working, patriotic and endowed with the right attitude of mind to serve the people with dignity while upholding the principles of Batho Pele and the Constitution.
