The North West Department of Education has appointed Mr Sello Ramong as the new Director for Employees Labour Relations Services with effect from 01 April 2023.

On its efforts of improving service delivery to the public, the department has started with the process of filling up vacant posts. All vacant posts from office based to classroom will be filled in order to increase the pace of service delivery.

Mr Sello Ramong possesses a Master of Business Administration degree, Post Graduate Diploma in Management, Diploma in Labour Law, Advanced Diploma in Labour Law and an Advanced Certificate in Education.

Mr Ramong is no novice to the North West Department of Education as he served as a teacher at Thebephatswa Secondary School in Magong Village near Moruleng for 12 years. He later served as the provincial organizer of the South African Democratic Teachers Union (SADTU), as well as a chief negotiator of Labour at the Co-ordinating Chamber of the PSCBC for North West Province (CCNWP) representing members both employed in terms of Public Service Association and Employement of Educators Act in their disciplinary cases.

Before this current appointment, Ramong worked at Ngaka Modiri Molema District where he administered and managed grievances, disciplinary cases, etc.

MEC Ntsetsao Motsumi congratulated the new Director for Employees Labour Relations Services in his appointment.

“I wish to take this time to congratulate Mr Ramong on his appointment as a Director for Labour. On my arrival in this department l indicated that all budgeted vacant posts should be filled. This is the first senior post l have filled up while others are still at advertisement stage. I called for a meeting with Human Resources Management team to instruct them to fill up all the vacant posts in the department. We have also advertised posts for Administration Assistants and General Assistants at school level which were vacant for years.

“During my engagements with principals l told them that anyone who is not ready to work should resign. Now we are busy filling up vacant positions which existed for many years, without any favouritism. I am happy that Mr Ramong is an oiled machine with his qualifications and experience will be able t improve the speed of services to the beneficiaries of the department”, said MEC Motsumi.

MEC Motsumi further emphasized that all temporary educators who are currently teaching in schools and occupying vacant substantive post should be immediately converted to permanent with immediate effect.
