Minister Debbie SchA�fer to visit Technical Teacher Training Programme at Bellville Technical High School
Tomorrow, 5th July 2017, Minister Debbie SchA�fer will be visiting Bellville Technical High School where over 200 teachers are taking part in Grade 12 Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) Technical teacher training.
A new specialisation CAPS curriculum for the three Technical subjects was introduced during 2016 starting with grade 10 learners. The subjects are much more focused on very specific skills in three technical subjects are Civil Technology, Electrical Technology and Mechanical Technology and each of the subjects has there specialisation areas.
It is therefore important that our teachers receive ongoing training and upskilling to ensure that they have the practical skills to offer the new specialized curriculum.
The Minister will be visiting the training sessions tomorrow and will witness first hand, teachers receiving practical training in Welding, Woodworking, Civil Construction, as well as Civil Services.
