Programme Delivery


Unit Description

The focus of Programme Delivery is to train teachers from Grades R-9 to improve their content knowledge and skills in, among others, Languages (with focus on reading) and Mathematics, and to equip each teacher with new pedagogies to teach the curriculum effectively in the classroom. Opportunities are created during the training sessions for teachers to share their experience and best practices.

This unit also includes Inclusive Education courses with the purpose to provide mainstream teachers with the knowledge to identify and support barriers to learning among our learners, especially in Languages and Mathematics. These courses empower teachers to apply intervention techniques to help the learners, so no one is left behind.

Additionally, we offer a variety of other programmes such as the Writing Project, Creative Arts, Natural and Social Sciences and the training of Grade R practitioners.

Conferences and seminars are hosted regularly during school holidays and weekends. Teachers are then provided with the opportunity to share best practices and learn from each other. Technology is integrated into all the curriculum courses to empower the teachers to apply 21st century skills through the curriculum into the classroom. This exposure enables teachers to adjust and modify their teaching plans, to bring the digital world into the classroom, and so adapting to the 21st century learners' digital way of learning.
