Tarabella - Marchesi, Ms NI to ask the Minister of Basic Education
Whether she has found that educators who are not members of teachers’ unions are disqualified from consideration to become markers of National Senior Certificate examinations; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?
All educators that have the appropriate qualification and the relevant grade 12 teaching experience are eligible to apply to mark. Markers are then selected in terms of the criteria listed in the Personnel Administrative Measures (PAM).
Membership to a Teacher Union is not a criterion for appointment as a marker and no educator has ever been disqualified from the selection process due non-membership to a Teacher Union.
