Teaching jobs in Johannesburg

Teaching is a rewarding profession that allows people to invest their time in the children of their local community. Teachers get to follow school schedules that allow time for holidays, but require some extra days for yearly training. Most teacher's positions require at least a bachelor's degree and prior experience teaching certain subjects and grade levels. Administrative positions may require a higher degree while teaching assistant positions and tutoring jobs may only require a Matric. Find teaching jobs in Johannesburg including primary teaching jobs, secondary teaching jobs, tutoring jobs, and more.

Teachers and Teacher Assistants

Primary and secondary teaching jobs require a bachelor's degree and many ask for two or more years of experience. Primary school teachers need experience in specific grade levels, while secondary teachers must have experience in specific subjects like Math or Social Studies. Teachers are responsible for planning and organising instruction, managing student discipline and grades, and dealing with parents, amongst other things. Teacher assistants help teachers manage the classroom. You can find teacher assistant jobs without a degree, but you must have a Matric.


For someone who does not want to teach full time, or has experience in education and wants to make some extra money, tutoring is a good option. Some tutors choose to work for larger companies that match tutors to clients, while some offer their services independently. Tutors are usually responsible for designing instruction to aid a student struggling in a particular subject, and meeting with them for a few hours each week. You will find that some tutoring jobs require a college degree.


School administrators, like supervisors and principals, carry more responsibilities than most teachers do. Bachelor's degrees are required in these positions, and some schools may even require an upper level degree. In addition, many schools look for an applicant with four or more years of experience. Principals must manage school staff and schedules, handle budgeting, and interact with students and parents.

Teaching positions offer people a chance to work in a student-focused atmosphere alongside others who believe in the power of education. Many teaching jobs offer competitive salaries and additional benefits. Be aware that teachers are often required to attend meetings, training, and other events outside of school hours.
