ECD Assistants (Cadet Scheme)

The Expanded Public Works (EPWP) is a national governmental programme that allows for an ECD Cadet Scheme. Grassroots plays a pivotal role in this national government initiative to groom young adults for service within the early childhood development (ECD) sector. Annually we take in hundreds of new ECD Assistants (young cadets) who we then place at numerous ECD insitutions including NGOs, ECD preschools and other facilities. Grassroots acts as the employer for these hundreds of ECD Assistants – guiding them and grooming them towards a career in community service or public service.
