Support and mentoring visits to the teachers will be initiated immediately after the training on the 21st to the 23rd of August.

The main purpose of the visit is to assist teachers with the application of the new and current domains inside their classes as well as to motivate the newly trained teacher-mediators.

The visits will be lead by district and provincial officials as well as by the project team leaders.

Community volunteers will accompany the class visitors on their mentoring visits - they will continue to receive on-site training to provide additional support to the teachers.

The teachers will resume with the systematic implementation of the programme after the visit.

Before the workshop I thought (that) I knew how to teach or introduce my lessons, but now I know that I was not doing justice to my learners. I took them for granted ... as if (they would) very easily understand my instructions.

‘Although I have been teaching Grade R for 23 years... I have learnt so much over the past 2 weeks and have already seen a change in most of my learners.’ (Metro Central, 2012)

Teacher Feedback

Good work, keep it up and do the same for my colleagues. This work could help save the children of South Africa … and give them hope for a better future.
