The BCP focuses on the learner… where the teacher acts as a mediator, prompts to access logical thinking and develops language.

Metro Central: Training, October 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

Practical, useful, clear, scaffolded for use in the classroom. Very approachable lecturer and lessening of anxiety through post-workshop contact.

Open Public Training, 2015 (Cape Town)

The training was very effective and informative … and gave us insight into how to teach and develop language. I wish there could be more of such training to develop ourselves further.
