I learned a new language to use with my learners.

I was very happy about my development on this course… often as teachers we do not pay attention to detail, but because of Basic Concepts I was aware of the lack of language use in my class. I am now using a different approach with my learners and being aware of the small details that make a big change in the way I teach and learners learn. Thank you for this eye opening course.

The BCP focuses on the learner… where the teacher acts as a mediator, prompts to access logical thinking and develops language.

Metro Central: Training, October 2014

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.

If you understand the basic concepts you will have a better understanding of more complex concepts.

 

Metro Central, October 2013

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.
