Post Provisioning

  • The PPN is regulated in terms of the Employment of Educators Act, 76 of 1998.

  • Regulations determine that MEC must create a pool of posts annually in accordance with funds available;

  • Unions are consulted from ;June to August of every year to share information on process (not necessarily to reach an agreement)

  • Schools receive their post establishments by end of September for the following year.

  • In 8 of the provinces – bar Eastern Cape – this process works reasonably well every year.

Post Provisioning

  • The EC has not implemented PPN since 1998 and this has resulted in unequal distribution of teachers with some schools having more teachers than needed and others having to employ teachers where the posts are needed. This has created double parking in some instances thus bloating the salary bill

  • The Eastern Cape is an exception in this regard because during the consultation process, unions disagree with the employer and the process is halted.

Current ppn
Current PPN

  • The current model is holistic and systemic but not sufficiently nuanced to cater for curriculum delivery per grade, per subject.

  • The post provisioning model attributes weights to learners and distributes available posts proportionally among schools.

  • The principal is entrusted with deciding how posts will be utilized in his school in accordance with curriculum offerings at the school.

Proposed new ppn model
Proposed new PPN Model

  • Intended to

    • address problems that persist w.r.t. large class sizes but also respond better to curriculum needs and appropriate utilization of teachers;

    • address the needs of poorer schools by allocating redress posts as part of the original distribution;

    • Deal with post-provisioning in small and multi-grade schools by giving them more teachers

    • Address the management of staffing turbulence created by annual learner number fluctuations;

    • Management class size through linking the allocation of posts to physical classrooms


  • New model is being tested with data that is presently used with the current model to determine the effect on each school – primary focus is that schools PPN should lead to quality learning and teaching;

  • The testing includes running scenarios with existing funding and with additional funding;

  • The testing will help us ensure that the revised PPN will deliver the intended outcomes and is financially doable;
