‘I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop as I was given the opportunity to work with learners … while being guided. The trainer demonstrations with the learners were an excellent idea. This workshop has been a success as I can now see what our learners lack. It made a lot of sense.’ (Metro South, 2009)

Teacher Training

‘All foundation phase educators, esp. Grade R, should attend this workshop. If everyone in the education system uses this BCP model, we should see remarkable improvements in the learners' LIT/NUM over a couple of years.’ (Metro North, 2009)

Teacher Feedback

‘BCP is foundational to a child's learning. It is the building blocks on which all other concepts are built. A concept needs to be fully understood by a child before a new concept can be taught. We often rush children's learning due to time constraints which is not correct.’ (KIDZPOSITIVE, Occupational Therapist, 2011)

Teacher Feedback

For me the most effective aspect was the basic teaching model.  When I implemented the model I found that my learners were more focussed when I followed the steps of the model.
