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.

For me the most effective aspect was the basic teaching model.  When I implemented the model I found that my learners were more focussed when I followed the steps of the model.

The course was very helpful to me as a teacher, excellent and exciting, because it opened my mind … how to integrate basic concept in all learning areas. It also showed that children should not be limited and their understanding should be developed step-by-step.

Basic Concepts are the building blocks on which cognition and perception is built.

I understand how I can assist my learners who need intervention. The BCP will boost the self-esteem and knowledge of weak learners. It definitely helps me to guide my learners, using the correct language applicable to the situation.

Metro South Education District: Training (January, 2013)

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.

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.
