The overall purpose of the visit is to extend and deepen the project that was initiated in February 2019.

The teachers will receive another two days of training and be exposed to the third and fourth conceptual domains of the programme: Size and Position.
 
Refer below for more details about the forthcoming training.
 

Date: 27 + 28 May 2019

Place: To be determined

Number of teachers: 41

Number of District Officials: 3 (JTG) + 3 (Frances Baard)

Number of Provincial Officials: 1

Number of Volunteers: 3

Support and mentoring visits to the teachers will be initiated immediately after the training on the 29th to the 31st of May.

The main purpose of the visit is to assist teachers with the application of the new 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 and the conceptual domain of Shape after the visit.

‘The trainer was very good and it was refreshing to be part of a workshop that can actually make a difference in the lives and minds of learners.’ (Metro North, 2010)

Teacher Feedback

All that I learnt from Day One  I was immediately able to apply in my class the following day… with remarkable results!

Metro South Education District: Teacher Training (February, 2014)

‘It is an excellent programme. Just a pity that not all reception year educators are exposed to the training. My understanding of the programme- it is developed to systematically mediate concepts so that learners are guided to develop an understanding and so that learning is meaningful.’ (Metro Central, 2012)

Training Feedback

I have learned new strategies to use across the CAPS curriculum, also new exciting ways to build language. I've become more aware of the language that I use in my classroom.

Metro Central Training: Western Cape Education Department (February, 2016)

I was very happy about my development on this course… often as teachers we do not pay attention to detail, but because of Basic Concepts I was aware of the lack of language use in my class. I am now using a different approach with my learners and being aware of the small details that make a big change in the way I teach and learners learn. Thank you for this eye opening course.

The workshop was very educative and an eye-opener. These are things that we usually just take for-granted.
