Raising the standard

We need more teachers and better teacher training to give our youth the best start in life.

Every child needs a good teacher. Together with Khululeka Community Education Development Centre in the Eastern Cape, we’re working to raise the standard of early childhood education by focusing on the professional development of teachers.

Khululeka promotes the HighScope approach to education, where young children learn through interaction with materials, ideas and the people around them. It runs the only HighScope Teacher Education Centre in southern Africa.

The HighScope approach encourages initiative, independence and creativity in children. Research shows that HighScope programmes advance development and improve children’s chances of living a better life through adulthood.

Khululeka’s programmes aim to both improve the quality of teaching and increase capacity within the sector. The ‘Training of Trainers’ programme enables participants to train others to implement the HighScope curriculum. It targets organisations whose practitioners are unlikely to qualify for formal NQF qualifications.

Since 2014, our partnership enabled Khululeka to extend its ‘Training of Trainers’ programme to Gauteng.
