Children are compelled to attend school in South Africa up to a certain age. We have educare facilities, pre-primary school grade 0, primary and high schools. On average a South African child attends school for a period of 13 years plus educare if they are able to attend such a facility. Special needs education for disabilities ranging from autism, hearing- or site impaired, etc are all well positions in South Africa. All these facilities need as much help possible in the classroom, in therapies, in sport etc.
Internships in schools offer amazingly rewarding internships and you would regret having to leave again.
