Metro Central Training, WCED, 2012

Saturday, May 26, 2012 - 00:00
Metro Central Education District

Teacher Training in Metro Central has recently been concluded. 55 teachers, learning support teachers and officials were included in the current round of training. The training was very positively received: -

'Definitely exceeded my expectations. I see that the BCP can have far reaching consequences if implemented optimally. We were told the how and why of implementation rather than the what.'

'I am excited to start the programme in my classroom because I expected just to be taught how to teach the concepts, but I’ve learnt exceptionally more wrt conceptual understanding and vocabulary extension + so much more.'

Teachers who have been trained will start to practise the programme until the end of the year and start to officially implement the programme at the start of 2013. We look forward to working with these teachers and supporting their implementation in the classroom.

It made me rethink how I teach and how I can change the language I use.

Die Basiese Konsepte Program het my self vertroue weer op gebou. My taal gebruik en my manier van dinge doen het ook verander. Ek is baie bly en gelukking om deel uit te maak van die Basiese Konsepte Program.

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.

The sessions were clear, informative, exciting, well presented, practical, logical and relevant to the context of teaching young learners.
