Support and mentoring visits to the teachers will be initiated immediately after the training on the 29th to the 31st of May.

The main purpose of the visit is to assist teachers with the application of the new 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 and the conceptual domain of Shape after the visit.

The workshop helped me to understand how to work with the children in the classroom. I also learnt how to ask open-ended questions that will encourage my learners to think and to ask more questions.

Good work, keep it up and do the same for my colleagues. This work could help save the children of South Africa … and give them hope for a better future.

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