Teacher Training: Tools to Create Great Teachers

At KET, we provide the tools to create great teachers.

Our teacher training programmes support holistic learning and provide practical accredited teacher training.

Formal Accredited Qualifications

In the past, distances to training institutions and cost implications made it prohibitive for teachers and new students to obtain formal accredited ECD qualifications. KET has partnered with the Professional Child Care College (PCCC-Johannesburg) to empower students to access training locally and obtain their formal ECD qualification.

The Learning Tree Model Preschool

The Learning Tree is KET’s model preschool and practical teacher training centre that provides a holistic learning environment to both learners and educators. Here, children receive age-appropriate developmental support to reach their full potential. Student teachers are mandated by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) to complete practical teaching hours in a registered facility and The Learning Tree enables in-classroom experience for them to build confidence and gain experience.

Competent, compassionate and committed teachers

KET hosts monthly training workshops for teachers and principals that cover the essential practical skills and knowledge required to operate effective and safe ECD sites. This programme not only improves the competence and confidence of previously qualified preschool teachers, but also includes practical classroom teaching and management skills, such as developing and using daily lesson plans and completing child assessments. This programme is aligned with the National Early Learning Development Standards and National Curriculum Framework.

I feel confident that, in the future, I could make a difference in someone’s life and be able to teach some one else by becoming the best teacher I can be - all thanks to KET.

Nadine van der Walt - Level 4, Module 1 student

What I am learning is already helping with how I interact with children and helps me present activities that will enhance their development. I am excited to keep training and to learn more. KET has established a wonderful training centre that really helps us develop our knowledge and skills. This is instrumental in our effectiveness with working with children in the future.
