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.

‘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)

Louis I salute you. I am empowered by the presentation. Never a dull moment even though the weather was hot. I've already implemented the programme with my learners.

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

Thank you for introducing me to this "life skill". It is wonderful that there is also an online, interactive, support system with resources available. 

Metro Central Training: Western Cape Education Department (October, 2015)

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)

What I understand about the Basic Concepts Programme is that it is very useful in all subjects. I must implement it in every lesson. I must also try to be as accurate and precise as possible when teaching.
