Free online courses for teachers
With all the discomfort and hesitation around learners returning to school, teachers still need to rely on virtual classrooms and curriculums to keep their students busy and motivated.
Pearson South Africa has launched free On–The-Go online Professional Development courses for teachers. This easy-to-use online platform provides effective and practical training for teachers.
Reggie Mokotsi, Executive Head of Learning Resources at Pearson South Africa says, it is imperative that we constantly create solutions that ensure learning continues for all during this period. “We have made available free digital resources for learners and parents across South Africa. We also wanted to include online training for the most crucial service to our children, and those are our teachers.”
He adds that during training, teachers will quickly learn core concepts and approaches to teaching, and acquire the practical strategies and skills to apply them in their virtual classrooms. Courses include providing skills and tools needed to work on digital platforms.
The following four courses are available for free.
