Frances Baard: Training and Mentoring Programme

A group of 30 teachers will be added to the current cohort of 56 teachers in 2022.

Each of the three officials from the district has invited 10 new teachers mostly from their current schools to join the project.

The teachers will attend two training sessions per conceptual domain over the course of the year. See the programme below.

The teachers are required to apply what they have learnt during training inside their classes and share best practices on a dedicated social media site.

‘It is an excellent programme. Just a pity that not all reception year educators are exposed to the training. My understanding of the programme- it is developed to systematically mediate concepts so that learners are guided to develop an understanding and so that learning is meaningful.’ (Metro Central, 2012)

Training Feedback

The emphasis on language throughout the programme helps to develop learners' understanding of concepts and expand their vocabulary. The BCP stops learners from guessing, it gives them more structure and develops their cognitive functioning.

Metro Central Teacher Comment (July 2013)

I had an idea what the course would be like, but it was much more than what I had expected.

I am really glad I made an effort to attend: Fantastic, enlightening, empowering.

The BCP provides "tools" for higher-level learning.

Public Open Training, Cape Town (2014)

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.
