Preparations for the 2022 academic year are well underway.

KZN Education worked through the challenge of fund shortages to advertise 2 692 promotional vacancies. 

More than half of these have already been processed. 

Sadtu's KZN spokesperson Nomarashiya Caluza says they're glad their fight against the impact of budget cuts in the education sector earlier this year is paying off. 

"Even now as schools will be closing, many teachers have letters of appointment, those that are promoted as principals, deputy principals as well as those that must be converted into permanency who has contracts that were said to be terminated in December. 

"So I think that we will be closing schools excited that at least there's preparedness."
