According to www.southafrica.info, the government’s newest strategy for turning education around is known as “Action Plan to 2014: Towards the Realisation of Schooling 2025”, which aims to improve learning and the work of teachers.
Action Plan 2014 includes the new CAPS curriculum focussing on literacy and numeracy, the introduction of standardised assessments of grade three, six and nine to better track progress and strengthening of teacher education and development programmes, including funding for bursaries for trainee teachers.
As a private higher education institution, Inscape Education Group shows interest in the development and progression of primary and secondary learning environments. Inscape acknowledge that the foundational learning of their applicants is paramount to ensure success at a tertiary level.
The implementation of their Teachers Conference some years ago to support teachers in the creative sector experienced positive results. However, through hosting these relatively small and exclusive gatherings, Inscape have come to understand that access to additional support and learning is reserved for those teachers who are able to physically attend the functions due to transport and proximity factors.
The Teachers Conference for 2016 will be taking on a new and improved approach to ensure that the invaluable information they able to collect from relevant experts in various fields will be made available through an online platform custom designed to serve a much wider teachers market.
Inscape is excited to announce that pre-registrations for the Inscape Teachers Conference are now open at http://teachersconference.inscape.co.za/
