  1. My feeling is that the youth of aliwal north are discriminated when it comes to being considered for placement on the learnership programme at the goedemoed prison because they are in the eastern cape yet they are the nearest to goedemoed management area in all towns surrounding goedemoed prison,in the past three years since the inception of the learnrship programme the are very people who have been placed on the programme from aliwal north,upon inquiring about this I was told that preference is given to people who reside in the free state regardless how far they stay from goedemoed prison,its unfair to the youth of aliwal north who aspire to be join the correcional services and serve their counry

  21. Everyone who is inteested in working for DCS must keep on checking DCS website,City press, and Sunday times. Normally these kind of posts are published once a year or once in two years time.
    Qualification:
    1. Matric certificate,your symbols are not important.
    2. 18-35 years
    3. No criminal record
    Your tertiary qualification will not be considered.
    Itz the matter of being lucky.
    I am currently working for DCS, I know how things are done.
    2014/2015 posts have not been issued out yet.
