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

‘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

Teachers use questions that evoke thinking and inquiry, so that the learners are able to discover and experience for themselves.

Presentation was well organized and clear. The lecturer explained extensively about the content of the course. The programme should be implemented by all Foundation Phase teachers and be recognized by government. The BCP is CAPS aligned.
