One of the greatest challenges facing the South African education system is the production of sufficient competent teachers who can provide quality teaching in all school subjects and phases.
The Zenex Foundation recently published a Learning Brief on lessons learnt from 3 teacher internship programmes that the Foundation supported over a number of years.
These internships are alternative school-based routes to an Initial Teacher Education (ITE) qualification for student teachers, that were established with the aim of developing well-prepared teachers capable of effective teaching.
The Learning Brief is available for download from the Zenex Foundation website.
The Foundation also published an earlier report on the role and effectiveness of teacher internships in South Africa. The Internship Report is available for download from the Zenex Foundation website.
