Teaching the teachers

A good teacher can help a person begin realising their potential from an early age.

Pre-school should offer a stimulating learning environment that sets a child on the path to school readiness. The goal of our partnership with Brainwave Careers is to make sure children who attend pre-school receive a proper education from teachers who’ve had the right training.

We’ve worked with Brainwaves since 2008. We began by funding the Discover Your Career book by Brainwaves that provides career guidance for older students. We now fund teacher training as part of its early childhood development programme.

The training instils the basic skills required to help pre-schoolers develop. Highly practical, it recognises that participants are unlikely to be working in well-resourced schools with lots of educational toys, so emphasises creative thinking. The foundation course leads to a two-year programme that provides the NQF 4 teaching qualification.
