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.

Metro South Education District: Teacher Training, May 2014

'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.' (Metro Central, 2012)

Central Training 2012

‘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)
