The Trust intends to extend its teacher training programme to enable it to provide certified Further Education and Training (FET) in Early Childhood Development. It has researched the quality of teacher training available in the Garden Route area and found it lacking in the necessary standards to which the Trust aspires. As a result the Trust is partnering with an established and recognised specialist ECD private FET training entity in Cape Town to deliver good quality Early Childhood Development Learnerships within Knysna. This will not only provide teacher training in the mother tongue but will also make teacher training more accessible and more affordable to all teachers and preschools in the area.
Funding is required to assist with the establishment of a larger training centre that will include practical training areas for role-play, a computer centre and a comprehensive Early Childhood Development (ECD) resource centre for teachers. Please contact Nicky Goodall should you be interested in supporting this project through teacher bursaries.
