Free virtual teacher training workshops
For many years, Pearson has been supporting teachers by providing free teacher training workshops across South Africa. In 2019, we ran 276 workshops, and over 9 000 teachers from 4 278 schools attended our workshops. However, due to the disruption caused by the pandemic, we have been unable to deliver our workshops face-to-face. This has not deterred the dedicated and passionate team of trainers who are now running our teacher training workshops virtually.
The training covers a vast range of topics relevant to teaching the curriculum, including workshops to assist teachers in implementing the revised ATP’s as per the DBE’s Recovery Framework and how best to use online tools to communicate with learners, as well as practical workshops on how best to use eBooks to deliver effective lessons.
Benadette Aineamani, Director of Product and Services at Pearson South Africa says, “it is imperative that we constantly create solutions that ensure learning continues for all during this period. That is why our dedicated team of trainers continue to run training workshops virtually. We want to include online training for the most crucial service to our children, and those are our teachers.”
She adds that during training, teachers will quickly learn core concepts and approaches to teaching and assessment, and acquire the practical strategies and skills to apply them in their virtual classrooms.
