Teach2030 is CET’s teacher development programme that provides teachers, and the young people in their care, with the skills and mindset to succeed in their future lives and careers. It seeks to reach the areas with the lowest levels of quality provision.
Kholosa has been a primary school teacher in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa for 5 years and is passionate about education. She is an energetic teacher who is always trying to find new ways to engage her learners. She is keen to develop her skills. She has 77 students in her class which provides challenges with individual attention, marking workload and physical space. Her classroom is laid out in a traditional row style, with a blackboard at the front of the room. The curriculum is demanding and there is a lot of material to cover. Kholosa finds herself teaching to the whole class, and spends the majority of the class talking. She is keen to develop her teaching practice in order to improve learning outcomes. Despite her enthusiasm to develop she does not get professional development due to a lack of suitable training opportunities.
Our response to these challenges is our Teach2030 programme. We believe passionately that quality education is fundamental to improving people’s lives and sustainable development. Teach2030 supports teachers through a personalised programme that helps transform their practice from teacher led to student centred through self-reflection and collaborative learning.
Supported throughout by local facilitators, their peers, online communication and collaboration.
Apply the learning to their own context, focusing on developing their individual challenges at their own pace and at a time that suits them.
Develop a cycle of reflection enabling them to identify their strengths and areas for development.
Communities of practice formed to provide a network for teachers to support each other to develop.
The outcomes will be monitored on developing from teacher led to student centred practice. We will measure this development based on the following areas;
Long term, we plan to measure the impact of student engagement and learning.
