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.

It helps learners to think and forms (the) foundation for reading, writing and mathematics.

Metro South Education District: Training (January, 2013)

I love the programme. I was not aware of how to introduce a concept … . If I could reverse my years in teaching, I bet I would have produced mathematicians, scientists and doctors.

Metro Central Teacher Comment (July, 2013)

‘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)

Thank you Louis for you dedication and enthusiasm. We need our teachers to be enthused with a love of children and a passion for mediating to our learners. God Bless.
