Thinking Schools South Africa

Thinking Schools South Africa (TSSA) is a non-profit organisation that empowers schools to grow a culture of explicit thinking so that students become independent life-long learners.

TSSA has a successful model of “how” to deliver the CAPS requirements of developing critical and creative, independent and interdependent thinking skills, which is accredited by the University of Exeter and parallels Harvard University’s Ground Zero approach of developing a visible Thinking Culture.

Key elements of the TSSA approach are: sustainable whole school transformation, globally tried and tested methodologies, and local communities of practice.

TSSA Trainers are teachers too, they have a wealth of practical experience. Only TSSA supports you for the on-going journey from Strategy to Training to Sustainable Implementation – starting with whole staff strategy and training in thinking languages.

​We are a Community of Practice with TSSA Trainers who are Teachers in Thinking Schools, to pay forward shared best practice from Houghton to Khayelitsha.
